Winter Date Ideas in the GTA

With winter right around the corner, many of us are quick to run under the covers and result to a Netflix and chill kind of night, but there's so much more to do! Toronto is a city filled with life at any time of the day! So, grab your friends or your significant other and explore all of the amazing winter activities the GTA has to offer.


Shangri-La Hotel

Grab a couple of friends and have a spa day inside the exotic and luxurious Shangri-la Hotel! The hotel offers relaxing indoor spa treatments that will make you forget all about the cold weather outside. In the past, the Hammam was known as the silent doctor. Indulge in traditional Hammam and Gommage treatments while your imagination takes you on a mystical journey into the past. The Miraj Hammam spa brings Old world traditions and introduces them into the new world. Enjoy this journey at Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto.

Chill Out with Cheap Drinks

Toronto has become the hub of money-wasting. Being in one of the highest-priced cities in all of Canada, it can be hard to find a cheap way to have some fun. Hard, but not impossible. Looking to forget about your problems? Grab some drinks at The Green Room. They offer $3.50 martinis, $4.25 pints, $7 cocktails, $15 (or less) Sangria and beer pitchers. The Green Room is the perfect place to spend some quality time with friends and not worry about breaking the bank!

Board Games

Nothing says bonding quite like board games and coffee. Instead of cozying up near a computer screen this winter, grab some pals and cozy up to a cool board game with a warm drink in your hand. Snakes & Lattes has become a popular hangout spot for the community, especially for students. Their large board game selection, food and drinks make you want to keep coming back for more.
