We haven’t been able to feel our fingers since November. Maybe we should get that checked out? Or, maybe we should distract ourselves by taking advantage of all the warm, cozy activities that’ll distract us from winter in Toronto. Yeah, that sounds like it’ll fend off our winter blues a bit.

Here are 6 activities in Toronto perfect for a cold winter day.

GO COFFEE SHOP HOPPING

Is there anything cozier than a coffee shop? Sometimes we get so comfy in them, we fall asleep. That gets awkward come closing time, especially if we’ve drooled. Grab a hot beverage and watch the snow fall from the comfort of, well, not outside.

TUCK INTO A BOWL OF RAMEN

Not warm on the outside? Warm up from the inside! Ramen is the perfect winter meal (besides a hearty bowl of hibernation). Take the time to try some new spots, why don’t ya?

POST UP ON A YEAR-ROUND PATIO

Patio season never dies, people. Toronto has plenty of patios equipped for colder weather, so you can still enjoy a drink outside. If you close your eyes and think really hard, you could maybe almost imagine it’s July.

SIP SOME HOT CHOCOLATE

Winter is the only time it’s completely acceptable to literally drink chocolate. Huh, maybe we need to give the season more credit! Take full advantage and wreck your health via sugar, it’s that time of the year.

TAKE A STAYCATION

Weekends in winter can be kinda depressing. Fight the urge to let your blanket burrito permanently fuse to your skin and escape to a cool local hotel for a night or two! It definitely breaks the routine of going home in the dark and passing out in front of Netlifx at 8 PM.

Hmm, maybe we don’t have to spend the next three months staring solemnly out the window. These cozy winter activities in Toronto might just make winter (dare we say it??) fun!
