We get it, dating in Toronto can get expensive.  Between the endless amounts of cool restaurants, awesome festivals, and constant concerts you can easily rack up a pretty big bill after treating your S/O.  Plus with the added stress of the Holidays, it seems like everybody's paycheques are getting spent a little faster than usual.

Although, there are definitely a few ways to get around emptying your wallet on date night.  For your convenience, we have compiled a list of 20 Toronto date ideas that won't have you cringing at your bill, but will definitely still keep you and your special someone entertained!

Have fun Toronto!
