With November finally approaching, it's time to ditch those Halloween costumes and get back into enjoying those last few months before snow hits. Back-to-school season is winding down and after Halloween, everyone will be in full-focus work-mode. Don't lock yourself away from society too much though, here are 9 things to do in Toronto to help you have a little work-life balance.

It's important to enjoy all of the great things that the city has to offer so that you don't get overwhelmed with that day-to-day life. Whether you feel like having a casual, early night, or want to go on a full-blown rager to blow off some steam, both those options are available to you. 

Last week was definitely a party week with all the Halloween festivities, and event planners went all out! We hope you had a great time gallivanting around town in your costumes. This week, the vibe is switching up, and it feels more low-key. That's okay though! You can still hit up some anticipated club nights and concerts that we've listed for you that will for sure be a great time. 

For those that want to get out of the house but want to avoid the crowds, we've also got some cool events for you to check out as well. Have a great weekend, Toronto!
