Top Toronto Activities for Your Anniversary or Honeymoon Staycation
Put the sparkle back in your relationship with these unique Toronto date ideas! Perfect for a romantic staycation, you can spend a day or two with your loved one enjoying Canada’s largest city, as well as its surrounding attractions.
Experience Toronto’s most extreme attraction
Are you both blessed with nerves of steel? Together, you can rise to the challenge of a hands-free walk on the edge of the iconic CN Tower’s main pod, where you will be 116 storeys above ground! It sounds far riskier than it is—you will be securely attached to an overhead rail by a harness, and led by a trained guide. You will also receive a keepsake video, printed photos, and a certificate of achievement to add to your collection of Canadian couple mementos!
Get directions to Edgwalk at the CN Tower (16-minute drive from Pan Pacific Toronto)
Set out on a hiking date
Getting out in nature together is healthy, fun, and the perfect excuse for quality conversation. Hendrie Valley is a lovely city escape, with five short and scenic trail walks to choose from. But if you prefer a more adventurous hike that will put you in the mood for romance, consider tracking down the West Montrose Kissing Bridge—the last covered bridge in Ontario. This Toronto landmark is easily accessible through a 2km detour from the Kissing Bridge Trailway.
