They also have Pedestrian Sundays from May 31st to October 25th, where the entire neighbourhood is completely pedestrian-friendly and vehicle-free.

OCAD University holds an annual GradEx exhibition featuring works from their graduates, and it’s always awesome.

I’ve gone to GradEx a few times, and it’s always so cool seeing how creative OCAD students are!

Bring along your date and stroll through OCAD hand-in-hand while admiring all the artwork.

Also known as sakura, cherry blossoms are a delicate flower that typically bloom in late April, and they only bloom or about a week or two.

There’s actually a whole site dedicated to updates about the cherry blossoms in High Park called Sakura in High Park!

Wander underneath the cherry blossoms and snap some cute spring photos, then head over to iHalo Krunch for some of the best ice cream in Toronto.

It’s usually packed during peak bloom, so it’s best to visit during weekdays and early mornings!

Spring flowers at Toronto Music Garden by the waterfront

Have a picnic at the Toronto Music Garden

The Toronto Music Garden is a lovely park along the waterfront that’s absolutely stunning during the spring and summer.

If it’s warm enough, you can have a cute lil’ picnic here – just bring a blanket and some snacks, or grab some takeout from one of the best restaurants at the Harbourfront!

Some of the flowers bloom super quickly (like in my photo above), so catch them as early as you can for those spring Instagram photos.

They also hold outdoor concerts here during the summer months, which is also a great time to have a picnic date!


Lavelle Rooftop Bar in Toronto, Ontario

Sip cocktails on a rooftop patio

The nicer the weather gets here in Toronto, the sooner we can hit up all the outdoor patios.

And rooftop patios are pretty romantic, if you ask me!

You can get gorgeous views of the Toronto skyline (maybe even the CN Tower) while sippin’ on delicious cocktails, beer, or wine.

There are plenty of awesome rooftop patios across Toronto that are perfect for a date, including The Broadview Hotel (a bit more low-key) and Lavelle (a bit more glam).
