Toronto is filled with exciting things to do and see. Whether you live there or you're just visiting, you're probably familiar with the main attractions. Many of us have climbed the CN Tower, visited Casa Loma, wandered through the ROM, and more. While these things are all amazing to check out, the city also has a plethora of strange and unusual events and attractions you may not know about. Explore a new side of the area by visiting these bizarre Toronto activities.\nThese nine things to do and see around the city are far from normal. Run through the streets in your bathing suit, or drink cocktails inspired by your favourite comic book superhero. You can pass by a house totally decked out in old toys, and indulge in a very unusual ice cream flavour. \nIt's nice to step away from the mainstream attractions to explore some lesser-known places once and a while. You can also check out some hidden destinations that tourists don't know about around the city. You'll be taken through a rainbow tunnel and into a Sherlock Holmes themed room.\nWhether you're looking for places to eat, things to do, or areas to wander through, these spots will have you uncovering new things throughout Toronto.\n\nToronto Santa Speedo Run\nPrice: Raise $250 in donations\nWhen: December 14, 2019, 1:30 p.m.\nAddress: 142 Cumberland St., Toronto, ON\nWhy You Need To Go: In support of the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children Toys and Games fund, this annual event sees tons of bathing suit-clad 'Santas' running through the streets.\n View this post on Instagram #latergram #santaspeedoruntoronto #speedorun2014 #speedo #Toronto A post shared by @ harkids on Dec 26, 2014 at 6:21pm PST\n\nWebsite\n\n\nBata Show Museum\nPrice: $5 - $14\nAddress: 327 Bloor St. W., Toronto, ON\nWhy You Need To Go: Explore over a thousand shoe-related artifacts at this unusual museum. \n View this post on Instagram We're heading back to Switzerland for today's #TravelTuesday.
