It’s not only the rent in Toronto that’s expensive.
The study defined a “typical date” as one that includes: a mid-range dinner for two, a shared bottle of wine, two movie tickets, and an 8 km taxi ride home.
The cost of a date in Toronto might seem astronomical, but compared to some other countries, we’re getting off (relatively) easy in Canada. New York City’s average cost sits at $187, while Oslo, Norway is looking at $221.
That must be some good wine.
Still, $142 is nothing to scoff at. Luckily, there are plenty of free and cheap dates that you can plan in Toronto. And we must say, winter in the city is quite romantic.
Check out the Toronto’s Christmas Market: It’s free during the week, and $5 entry on evenings and weekends. Or maybe a winter stroll is more your speed. There are a bunch of beautiful spots to visit to ogle at the Christmas light displays.
Or: Winter at Ontario Place features various cold-weather activities including skating and bonfires, and admission is free!
Instead of stressing over the dent in your wallet, you can focus on making an imprint on your partner’s heart. (Awww.)
