Even though the pandemic has cancelled many of our beloved holiday traditions in Toronto this year, there are still festive areas in the city to see while physically distanced.

Here is a list of some of the festive spots in Toronto this holiday season.

The Distillery District

The famous Christmas Market might be cancelled this year, but there are still lots of festive lights sparkling all over the Distillery District. Pay a visit and take a stroll through the historic streets while taking in all of the holiday lights, and obviously getting a fire picture for insta.

Just remember, you are asked to wear a mask at all times.

Fairmont Royal York

The Fairmont’s holiday windows open on December 2. Stop by to take a look and snag a festive picture in front of the display. The display designer is Frank Rea, and the windows will be shining on Front Street until early January.

Nathan Phillips Square

The 60-foot Christmas Tree in Nathan Phillips Square has been lit up for the season and will illuminate City Hall into early 2021. There are also strings of lights and sparkling stars— a great spot to get the perfect distanced holiday shot for Instagram.
