this week things to do

It’s finally June! Is it just us, or has this spring felt like it’s gone on forever? Could have something to do with the global pandemic… We’re not sure. Anyway, summer is coming. Which is a good enough reason for us to celebrate! And this week, there are tons of ways to do that.

Here are 8 things to do at home and around Toronto this week.

CATCH A FILM FESTIVAL FLICK

So a massive global film festival is going on this week and you’re definitely gonna wanna be part of it. It’s a joint effort between some of the biggest festivals around the world. Organizations like TIFF, Cannes, Sundance, and more have all joined forced to bring us this amazing event. So catch it on YouTube all week long!

GO FOR A BIKE RIDE

As the weather gets warmer, it’s the perfect time to get outside and get active! And now, Toronto will be expanding the city’s cycling network by 40 KM! Even more room to ride, people!

HUNT FOR ART AROUND THE CITY

A brand new art installation has just begun in Toronto. And it’s featuring COVID-19 related pieces all through the city. So if you get bored this week, why not take a walk downtown and see how many murals you can spot? Just make sure you keep a safe distance from others while you’re out!

GET DELIVERY

While we patiently wait for restaurants to fully reopen to the public, we can still enjoy their delicious eats via delivery. We recommend checking out any of these scrumptious spots when hunger hits this week.

DON’T WAIT IN LINE

It seems that every time we go out for groceries we find ourselves stuck in lineups around the store. Well, if you shop at this No Frills, you don’t have to worry about that! They’re live-streaming their lineups so you just have to check online to find out if it’s a good time to go!

GET OUTDOORS

Since it’s basically summer now, we’ve been loving getting outside to enjoy the warm weather. And now that Toronto is painting social distancing circles at major parks around the city, we can do it safely! So get out there and enjoy the sun!

HIKE A NATIONAL PARK

Speaking of getting outside… If you’re looking for a bigger adventure than heading to a Toronto park, you can hit up one of these Ontario National Parks. They’ve finally reopened and are the perfect places to get your hike on.

GET TESTED

Since the virus still hasn’t gone away, what better time than now to get tested for the virus? Tons of people who are asymptomatic could be carrying it. So it’s wise to figure out if that’s you. And luckily, Ontario finally has enough resources to accommodate it. So get tested this week. Better to be safe than sorry, right?

Happy June everyone! We hope you have as much fun as we will at home and around Toronto this week!
