Don’t let your summer plans turn into binging Netflix without end. You can have unforgettable summer memories right here in Toronto! Here’s a summer bucket list that will make you have the best summer yet – without hurting your wallet! Everything on this list is under $10. Yes, you read that right!
1. Watch a Blue Jays Game from a Bird’s Eye View
Pretty witty title eh? For $10 you can nab nosebleed seats to cheer on the home team! And when the roof is open, it’s the perfect spot to be to enjoy some sunshine while watching the game. Here’s the scoop, download the app Gametime. No catch. No Sneaky Payments. No Scam. Pure Awesome. Click Toronto and have a field day with the low prices.
2. Build a Campfire on the Lake at Humber Bay West
This is a hidden gem in Toronto. Here’s how to achieve the perfect bonfire night! Packing List; blanket, matches, marshmallows, chocolate, graham crackers, hot coco in a thermos, firewood and your camera. Next, head on over to Humber Bay West. You will find yourself across the lake from downtown Toronto (yes the view is real and no I’m not lying to you). Walk down the little patch of cool rocks. Set up your blanket literally 3 feet from the water! Now you can gather rocks from the beach and make yourself a fire pit! Add some firewood and start making those s’mores! What’s a better way to spend a summer night than sitting on the lake, eating s’mores, and looking directly at one of the most beautiful cities in the world…Toronto!
3. Free Flicks at Harbourfront Centre
This is by far one of my favourites. Enjoy movies like Raising Arizona and Boy all for free right by the lake! Movies are shown every Tuesday night. Check out the summer flicks schedule here!
4. Play a Board Game
Yes, this is a real thing to go out and do. At Snakes and Lattes Board Game Café you can enjoy some good old childhood memories. Cover fee is only $5 and their drinks start at $2…come on… you gotta check this place out.
5. Take a Ferry to Toronto Island
Enjoy a break from city life… without leaving the city (confusing but true). In downtown Toronto, a ferry leaves every 15 minutes at the foot of Bay Street over to Toronto Island. The ride costs just $7.25 roundtrip. Once you’re over there you can visit a little farm, rent a bike and have a picnic, or just sightsee along the water. Great places to eat are also all located on this easily accessible island.
