Distillery District's Hidden Gems Are The Perfect Places To Explore This Spring

We don't want to jinx it, but it looks like spring is finally starting to arrive. While we're probably in for a few more snow blizzards, we can still start to dream about all the things we're going to do once the warm weather stays for good. The Distillery District is always a good time, and if you feel like you've explored everything it has to offer, you may be wrong. The Distillery District's hidden gems are worth checking out this spring.

Just because the iconic Christmas Market has closed for another year, it doesn't mean the Distillery District has lost its appeal.

There's still so much to see and do in this historic place, and it's the perfect area to visit this spring.

Apart from the many pop-ups and installations that frequent the area, you can explore some unique shops and cafes.

Ice cream is a must during sunny days, and you can find every flavour at a hidden spot in the Mill Street building.

Wander down the cobblestone streets into unique shops featuring Canadian-made items, and tour North America's first sake distillery.

Put away your touque, grab your sunhat, and head over to the Distillery District to explore some secret spots this spring.
