10 staycation ideas in Toronto this fall
A Toronto staycation can make the most of where you already are without wasting time and money on travel to another destination. You can kick up your feet at a local hotel, but there are also plenty of other fun new activities to check out in town if you're looking to break out of your usual routine.
Here are some staycation ideas for Toronto.
Ace Hotel and W Hotel have just recently opened up in Toronto, and they're taking glam in this city to a whole new level. Both are equipped with buzzy fine dining options, the W crowned with a rooftop bar.
Pretty changing leaves are always a highlight of the season, and you don't need to venture outside of town to see them. Rouge Park is the biggest outdoor public space in Toronto where you can take in everything autumn has to offer from stunning lookout points.
The new Stella Artois Terrace at Woodbine Races will make you feel super fancy with lots of options for food and drink in a relaxing lounge. Who knows, maybe you can even win a little spare change.
Real ones know that a trip to Ward's Island isn't just for summertime. There are lots of cute trails to wander around and feel like you've escaped from the city for an afternoon, and it's still warm enough to pack up a picnic and dine outside or spend some time at the beach.
So many places where you can wet your whistle have opened up lately, so it's worth planning a crawl to tick them all off your list. Parc Ave, Nothing Fancy, Offworld Bar, Paradise Grapevine on Geary, Kolors Barbershop, Poetry Lower Westside and Society Clubhouse are just a few new options.
If you want to feel like you're getting out of the city for a bit but don't have much time to make it out of downtown, the West Toronto railpath is a nice option for an afternoon of strolling without cars constantly whizzing by.
Not many people are aware of Centennial Park Conservatory, but it's a great place to go in the fall for a break from city life, especially if you're the sort of person that wants to hang on to all the green and plant life of summer.
All kinds of art and performance is represented at this industrial studio space in Toronto, so if you're looking for inspiration on your staycation this might be just the place to go.
