Toronto’s only castle is a majestic maze of towers and beautifully decorated rooms and tunnels. The grounds feature a stunning view of the castle, and the conservatory fountain is a particularly romantic spot. The perfect place to re-enact your favourite medieval-fantasy romance!
The most recognizable landmark in Toronto’s skyline is an ongoing romantic destination, coupled with the best view in town. This 553-metre tall tower remains one of the tallest in North America and boasts a glass floor, revolving eatery and exterior wall-walk for the very brave. The panoramic view offers an experience like staring down from the heavens.
Who would’ve thunk that a spot under a highway could be so romantic? The Bentway is a unique and innovative public space that transforms almost two full km under the Gardiner Expressway into a new gathering place for the city’s growing population. Art shows, community events and ice skating are all major happenings down under. Nothing says “unique date” more than weaving your way through the pillars of an overpass on a pair of skates, while traffic rumbles overhead.
A pedestrian and cyclist through-arch that spans Humber River before feeding into the lake, the Humber Bay Arch bridge is a unique structure where one can enjoy sunsets and gaze at Toronto’s skyline. Romantics snap a photo facing east, with Lake Ontario behind you.
With its cobbled streets and old brick buildings, the Distillery District is a beautiful place to eat, drink and celebrate romance. Its LOVE sign is the prime spot to pose for a romantic photo.
Located in Toronto’s Beaches neighbourhood, this adorable little cinema will take you and your partner back in time. Up your movie-date game with a retro-feel.
The St. Lawrence Market’s 100+ vendors, bakers, butchers and artisans are great fun to explore. It’s easy to lose yourself for an afternoon in the countless sights and smells. Take the opportunity to try out some new things with that special someone.
If you’re one who thrives on friendly competition, look no further than Snakes and Lattes. Cozying up and playing some classic board games while sipping a hot, tasty beverage sounds like the ideal date.
… And for the literal-minded, there’s always Love Crescent. Turn a neighbourhood stroll on its head by taking this route; the perfect, quirky spot to steal a smooch and snap a pic.
