Toronto is arguably one of the best cities to experience fall in. The changing colors and crispness in the air add a certain je-ne-sais-quoi to this already majestic city.
I love exploring Toronto during the fall months – the temperature is just right, not too hot and not too cold, making it super easy and comfortable to walk from place to place. Don’t be fooled into thinking that the city slows down as the temperature drops; Toronto is only just getting started, there’s still plenty to do in the city during this time of year.
Here are my picks for the top things to do in Toronto this fall.
Stuck in the city, but still want to have that cottage experience this fall? Head on over to one of the city’s beautiful parks to enjoy a little country in the city. Dufferin Grove Park is one of the best for a toasty, late night campfire, but you can also check out the new Trillium Park at Ontario Place. Don’t forget to bring some marshmallows!
Fall is all about being cozy and what is cozier than cuddling up with a cute little kitten? Pay a visit to Toronto’s first ever cat café this fall where you can play with a ton of different cats while sipping on a fresh cup of coffee. PS these cats are also up for adoption, so if you find yourself really clicking with one, you might just be able to take them home with you.
The Legends of Horror at Casa Loma is an exciting, immersive theatrical interpretation of your favorite classic horror figures. Guests will be guided through a one hour tour commending in the lower gardens of Casa Loma and winding its way through the castles tunnels and darkest spaces never before open to the public.
This fun festival runs from October 20-22 and gives visitors the chance to try one of a kind beer from vendors across Canada and the United States. The festival offers over 400+ beers and ciders and celebrates cask ale – unpasteurized, unfiltered, and naturally carbonated beer that’s served directly from a cask barrel.
For two weeks out of every year, Canada’s Wonderland Theme Park transforms into a giant haunted park. In addition to the rides being fully operational, Halloween Haunt features over 700 creepy actors walking around the park dressed as everything from zombies to clowns, as well as horrifying mazes, scare zones, and live shows.
Albion Orchards is located just a short drive outside of Toronto and features both a giant pumpkin patch and apple orchard. There is nothing more fall than visiting an orchard to pick some fresh goodies; take it a step further and use your new pumpkins and apples to bake a delicious fall pie.
The Royal Agriculture Winter Fair is the world’s largest indoor agricultural and international equestrian completion, drawing more than 300, 000 visitors to Toronto annually. There is something at the fair for everyone, including over 4,500 large and small animals, shows, activities,
This gorgeous park right on Toronto’s waterfront is the perfect place to curl up with a great book and enjoy the changing seasons. The Book Garden features paving stones engraved with the names of every winning author and title since the Toronto Book Awards were founded in 1974.
While this might seem like a crazy suggestion, fall is actually the best time to surf on Lake Ontario. The lake’s modest waves are often strengthened due to seasonal storms so you can get a longer ride in. As long as you pack your thickest wetsuit, you’ll be good to go!
This year, Toronto’s original haunted attraction is celebrating 25 years of being the city’s best and only Haunted Scream Park. This attraction takes over an entire parking lot and makes you feel like you’ve just stepped out of a horror movie.
The Toronto Chocolate Festival is a month-long event that officially declares November “I LOVE CHOCOLATE” month. Throughout the month the Toronto Chocolate Festival hosts as many chocolate-related events as they can ranging from entertaining, to educational, to just plain fun.
