There's nothing like staying inside after a long, cold winter – said no one, ever. We all know that Torontonians love a good patio in one degree weather, but things are looking a little different this spring.
Staying cooped up indoors can be challenging, especially when parks and festivals are calling our names, but the great outdoors isn't cancelled, it's just put on hold. So in the meantime, we can explore what our city has to offer from a distance. There's still lots to see, you just gotta look for it.
What to Eat and Drink
Tucking into restaurants, bars and shops may be off the table for now, but we can still get a taste of our favourite spots with delivery, pickup and curb-side drop off. Pro-tip: Don't forget to tip!
Travel around the world via your plate with drool-worthy Toronto dishes inspired by international cuisine.
Do a sourdough punch (it's a thing) with T.O.'s professor of bread, Mathew James Duffy.
Make any hour happy-hour with cocktails and hard-to-find wines delivered to your door – yup, to your door.
What to See
Being a tourist in your city can be a lot of fun – who knows, you might even discover something new about your own backyard (let's be real, who has a backyard in Toronto?).
Embrace your inner Drake with sky high views of the Six from the CN Tower's cameras. Or make your own tower with the #MyCNTower challenge, which has people all over the city constructing their version out of household items like toilet paper and pillows.
Bring the zoo to you with live events every day at 1 p.m. on the Toronto Zoo's Facebook page.
What to Do
Strolls around the block are nice and all, but you can only physical distance yourself from other people's dogs for so long. Resist the temptation to hug a furry friend with some of these fun activities.
Dance like nobody is watching (unless you turn on your camera) with classes from City Dance Corps. The studio posts daily, free classes on their Instagram and if you're craving more, you can enroll in their virtual classes.
And finally, laugh it all off with classes from the Second City.
