How cool is it that the earth gives us sunsets and sunrises? It’s like a little Bob Ross art moment across the whole sky, for free. Lucky for us, there are tons of spots in the city to catch that beautiful view! The sun’s been setting right around dinnertime these days, so pack a picnic (and a jacket) to catch the prettiest thing our city has to offer. A sunset in Toronto just hits different, you know?

Here are 6 of the best spots for catching the sunset in Toronto.

RIVERDALE PARK EAST

This is the perfect spot for a romantic sunset date. Sit on the hilltop and watch the sun glisten over the beautiful Toronto skyline. It seriously looks like a postcard from here!

Where: 550 Broadview Ave

HUMBER BAY PARK

If you’re in the western part of the city, this is the best spot for you. Get your camera ready and head down to the beach to catch these gorgeous sights. The colours over the water basically make it two sunsets in one.

Where: 100 Humber Bay Park Rd W

POLSON PIER

Again, we’re suckers for a sunset on water. Take a walk down the boardwalk and absorb the magic. Or, if you’re feeling really bold, hop in a boat and admire it from there (y’know, with lights and safety things and such).

Where: 11 Polson St

TOMMY THOMPSON PARK

This spot is also known as the Leslie Street Spit, but we promise this view is nothing to spit at. Overlook the marina while you watch the sun set over our lovely city. The boats in the harbour make it 100% more romantic, and that’s science.

Where: 1 Leslie St

MARILYN BELL PARK

Another boardwalk! Honestly guys, you’re welcome. Head down here for lakefront views that can’t be beat, best enjoyed while taking a stroll. What can we say, our butt gets numb too fast to sit sometimes.

Where: 1095 Lakeshore Blvd W

CN TOWER 360 RESTAURANT

What better place to catch the sunset than from the literal sky? This high-up vantage point will give you a view of the entire city as the sun descends. It’s breathtaking, y’all. Also, there’s clearly food involved in this option, which makes anything better.

Where: CN Tower, 290 Bremner Blvd

Cameras ready people! Or just sit there and enjoy it the old fashioned way. Sunsets never photograph well anyway, so we’re happy to just admire the show. Either way, these sunset locations in Toronto are pretty unforgettable. Obvious disclaimer, we don’t recommend climbing on buildings or sitting on ledges like buddy in the pic. Safety first, friends.
