As the weather starts to change, there is no denying that winter is well on its way, and it’s officially time to embrace the glory of the season, with hot cocoa, festive attractions and colourful lights. If you have a special someone in out life, it is the perfect time to spark a passionate romance as Toronto transforms into a spectacular winter wonderland. Instead of escaping the cold with an endless stream of Netflix, take advantage of the upcoming holiday season, with flirtatious and fun date spots bustling around the city. Don’t let the outdoor flurries spoil your weekends, and try cozying up to your sweetheart while exploring all the seasonal activities Toronto has to offer.

Skating at Nathan Phillips Square

Opening on November 25 and running all winter long, you and your significant other can skate under the cavalcade of lights at Nathan Phillips Square. It is truly a fairy tale come-to-life and the ideal date spot for new couples and old-time lovers. Featuring a live DJ spinning upbeat tunes, the dreamy setting will certainly have you bonding with your love, holding hands and teasing one another over your amateur skating skills.

The Christmas Market at the Distillery District

From November 18 to December 22, Toronto’s charming Distillery District is the perfect spot to experience some holiday magic. As it is annually adorned with beautifully lit canopies, holiday vendors and one of the city’s biggest Christmas trees, strolling through the cobblestone lanes with your beau is certainly a festive way to embrace the season. You can also visit the popular and romantic installation at the centre of the market, where a specially engraved locket that dangles onto the bars of steel outlines the word “love”.

Lounge at the Drake Sky Yard

As temperatures begin to drop, the Drake Hotel transforms its rooftop into a cozy patio where you and your date can sip on drinks, while wrapped in a blanket under heated lamps. It is a fun and casual date spot where couples can unwind and hit it off, stargazing in the open air even as the weather cools. Along the stunning skyline, embracing the outdoors in a toasty setting is sure to evoke some romantic chemistry.
