If you don’t feel like checking out the cherry blossoms, don’t worry. There’s still plenty of fun to be had outdoors. Like at the Toronto Islands! With one ferry ride, you can explore tons of amazing outdoor space, beaches, and more. We recommend timing your trip back into the city with the sunset for some seriously epic views.

People bond over puppies. It’s just a fact. So if you’re looking to impress that special someone, a dog park might just be the way to go. If you have a dog, that is. Don’t be a weirdo and just watch other people’s pooches. There’s something strange about that. Anyway, it’s a great way to get outside and enjoy a little free serotonin.
