The cold is creeping up on us in Toronto and the city is in a busy state where everyone is really focused on themselves. People are always a little more preoccupied than usual with gift ideas, school assignments, and work right before the holiday season hits us with full force. We're bringing you 9 things to do in Toronto this weekend so that you don't forget to enjoy yourself.

If you feel like still leaving the house but not going on a full-blown night out, there are some pretty great early activities to keep you stimulated. Hockey season is here, so why not go watch a Leafs game? Cirque du Soleil are approaching their final days in Toronto, too, so take advantage.

Don't keep yourself cooped up too much. It can be tempting at this time of year to just stay home curled up under a blanket. Remember, it's good to get out of the house. Whether you want to go shopping or dancing, remember, there are always options. Check out the list we've compiled and see if there's anything for you.
