Holiday lights, Christmas festivals and all the shopping opportunities you could ask for: Toronto is the perfect spot to get in the spirit of the season this year. Here are five musts for your visit to Ontario’s biggest city.
Not only is the Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood especially beautiful once the holiday lights are on, but it also is one of Ontario’s top shopping destinations. It is the perfect place to make your way through your gift list in a charmingly festive setting.
Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square is a hub for holiday celebrations. Take in the lights display in the square, and enjoy regular free entertainment weekends throughout the season. Even better: you’ll be just across the street from the CF Toronto Eaton Centre and the tallest Christmas tree in Toronto.
It’s a holiday tradition! Each year the Hudson’s Bay Company shop windows are just the thing to put you in the festive spirit. This year marks the debut of new displays, and include beautiful Canadian-inspired panoramas.
With City Hall and the iconic Toronto sign as a backdrop, Nathan Phillips Square is the perfect place to go for a skate in the heart of the city. The square is also home to the stunning Cavalcade of Lights display, and Toronto’s official Christmas Tree.
Cobblestone walkways, local and unique handcrafted gifts, and beautiful lights displays throughout, the Distillery District’s old world charm makes the Toronto Christmas Market one of the most stunning holiday celebrations around.
