Despite celebrity status, Hollywood is full of human beings just like the rest of the world. That means just like us they celebrate the holidays. For celebs, that could also include travelling home to the rest of their families at the end of December. Canada’s biggest city is home to a bunch of these stars which means there are a ton of Toronto celebrity hotspots during the holiday season that you can check out.
From Drake to Justin Bieber, to Shay Mitchell, a ton of Canadian celebs have visited these places.

This park is essentially Toronto's Central Park. From acres of grass and wildlife to a zoo, swimming pool, and baseball field, it's not a surprise that Shawn Mendes loves this getaway when he visits.
