Living in the city during winter can sometimes become a little boring. The days are shorter, the nights are cold, there's lots of snow everywhere, and there's generally less to do outside. I mean, it's called cuffing season for a reason. That said, if you're looking for super fun date ideas in Toronto this winter, and feel like getting out of the house a bit, we've got just the thing.

The Barbara Ann Scott Ice Trail in College Park is finally open and it's the perfect way to spend a quiet afternoon getting your glide on, surrounded by urban beauty. We tagged along with Samantha as she did just that.

Bring your skates, or borrow from the Toronto Public Lending Library, lace them up and enjoy downtown Toronto's first oval-shaped trail. Don't worry, a 1,500-square-foot pavilion along the trail offers blade-friendly rubberized surfaces, washrooms, and a warm-up area for skaters.

Did we mention that the Barbara Ann Scott Ice Trail is also free? We find this a particularly nice touch and a welcome initiative from this city. As chances are, money ain't exactly raining down from the sky at this time of the year. So put on your toque and some fluffy mittens, grab a special someone, and create a little winter magic while burning some calories to boot!
