11 Unique Fall Date Ideas in Toronto

Looking for fun fall date ideas in Toronto to go on this season?

It’s officially autumn in the city, so it’s time to get to planning those fall date ideas.

I’m all about the mild weather and beautiful fall foliage – it’s the perfect time to get out and explore the city!

No matter what you’re interested in, there are plenty of unique date ideas you can do in Toronto during the fall season.

Whether it’s checking out the fall foliage or wandering through an event in the city, there are plenty of awesome things to do in Toronto during the fall!

Here are some unique fall date ideas in Toronto, guaranteed to impress your date.


High Park in Toronto

1. See the fall foliage in High Park

High Park is the perfect place to stroll through for some gorgeous fall foliage!

Bring along some sandwiches and coffees for a cute fall picnic date by the picturesque pond.

If you’re up for getting some exercise, you can rent a Bike Share and ride along the bike trails!

LOCATION: 1873 Bloor St. West | Website


Scarborough Bluffs, Ontario
Scarborough Bluffs

2. Explore Scarborough Bluffs

The Scarborough Bluffs is beautiful year-round, but fall is definitely my favourite season to explore it.

Spend a romantic afternoon admiring all the gorgeous fall foliage and watching the waves crash against the beach!

Just be smart and don’t stand too close to any cliff edges or anything, ya know.

3. Hike at Glen Stewart Ravine

If you’re looking to get out of the city while not actually having to get out of the city, Glen Stewart Ravine is the perfect place to go.

Hike through the forest, walk along the picturesque boardwalk, and enjoy the gorgeous views!

It’s especially incredible during the fall with all the changing leaves, and it’s super Instagrammable if that’s what your partner’s into!

It’s located in the Beaches neighbourhood, so you can walk along the boardwalk at the Beaches afterwards to enjoy the fall weather even more.

LOCATION: Glen Stewart Ravine


Toronto International Film Festival

4. Watch a TIFF film together

Watching a movie during the Toronto International Film Festival is completely different than watching a movie any other day.

The excitement, the hustle and bustle, the celebrities – it’s just such a fun and unique experience!

Take your date on an exclusive VIP experience with a TIFF screening and a romantic dinner in the Entertainment District.

TIFF is having drive-in screenings this year, which is even more fun!

LOCATION: 350 King St. West | Website


Nuit Blanche in Toronto

5. Wander around Nuit Blanche

While Nuit Blanche is usually filled with drunk crowds and rowdy teenagers, it’s not so bad if you go right when it starts at 7 PM.

Spend the evening wandering around the city and looking at cool works of art with your S/O.

Stay out all night, or go home at 9 PM to binge-watch some horror movies together.

Nuit Blanche isn’t happening this year, but it’s a good date idea to keep in mind for next year!

Afterwards, hit up a trendy restaurant on Queen West for some good food and drinks.


Scrabble at Snakes and Lattes Board Game Cafe in Toronto

7. Get competitive at Snakes & Lattes

If you and your S/O are the competitive types, spend an evening playing board games at Snakes & Lattes.

Yes, you can play board games at home, but there are so many more options at Snakes.

Whether you’re into strategy games or word games, they’ve got pretty much any game you could ever want to play!

And their Nutella lattes are delicious!

Afterwards, you can do a little exploring in the Old Toronto neighbourhood, which is where the city originated!

Halloween Haunt at Canada's Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario

9. Get spooky at Halloween Haunt

In the mood to get a good scare with your S/O?

Pay a visit to Halloween Haunt at Canada’s Wonderland.

You may get chased away from your partner by a freaky clown, but at least you can call it a unique date…
