There's nothing quite like watching the sun go down. 🌇
11 Toronto Sunset Spots Where You Can Watch The Whole Sky Change Colour

Ah, summer, the season we all love. As the temperature rises, we get outside more, and the days get longer and longer. And while we all love basking in the sunshine, there's something magical about those summer nights. If you're looking for some natural beauty in the 6ix, these amazing Toronto sunset spots will have you feeling at peace and lost in the summer feels. 

As the sun begins to descend on another day, the sky begins to become a kaleidoscope of colours, ranging from orange to blue to pink, melting together in an awe-inspiring scene over the city.

If this sounds crazy, it's probably just best to see it yourself, and there are so many places to marvel at how gorgeous dusk is in summer in the city.

Many spots for seeing sunsets are well-known locations while others are hidden gems waiting for you to discover them all across Toronto.

Don't forget to bring a camera!

If gazing at the sky isn't your thing, there are plenty of other things to do around Toronto to fulfill your creative side, from Nathan Phillips Square to the Distillery District.

But if you love a good sunset after a day at the beach or sitting out on the patio this summer, grab some friends, a blanket, and your phone and head out to some to some or all of these amazing spots.
