From Holiday themed activities, to one of the most unique trains exhibitions we have ever seen, and a walk through a magical Mediterranean Garden, RBG was a welcomed escape from the snowy weather outside.
We visited just as Pioneer Village kicked off the Holiday season. The historical cottages were decorated with holly and evergreen, the fireplaces kept visitors warm, and Santa waited for children to declare their wishes...
If you're looking for a family-friendly, affordable, and accessible option to experience a professional hockey game, I recommend going to watch the Toronto Marlies. Games are jam packed with entertainment!
Culture Days offers a unique opportunity to meet and work with artists, creators, dancers, designers, and more. Here's a list of our favourite Culture Days activities filled with family fun (and it's all free!).
Last year, while seeking an activity for my son and I, I attended The Ex, at the Canadian National Exhibit for the first time. Since I have such fond memories of that day, I wanted to make it a yearly tradition.
Toronto's annual Summer fair, the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), is a celebrated event for the city. Running from August 16 to September 2, many families make a Summer visit to the CNE an annual tradition...
With membership passes to the Zoo, Wonderland, and Science Centre, I almost always forget to enjoy some of the FREE stuff the city of Toronto has to offer families. One of those places includes the Riverdale Farm...
On Sunday, Spadina Museum hosted a Gatsby Garden Party. The lush grounds set the scene for flapper girls, dapper dressed gentlemen, and bow tie wearing kids enjoying pink lemonade and vanilla ice cream cones.
Today, we spent our day at the Unionville Festival. The festival draws both locals and visitors from all over Toronto. With so much to see and do, it’s a great place to spend a few hours, the day, or even the whole weekend!
Filled with a collection of Lego-themed attractions, including a 4D cinema, race tracks, earthquake tables, a Fire Academy obstacle course, and Duplo Village, kids (and adults!) will enjoy exploring Legoland.
We visited the MRTC during the holidays and while my son was thrilled to see a vast collection of scale trains racing along the tracks, I was most impressed with the all of the incredible display details.
I searched the city for bakeries, but not just any ordinary supplier of jelly-filled donuts or shortbread cookies. I found bakeries that happily cater to special diets. These bakeries are doing something wonderfully different.
The Toronto Christmas Train Show celebrated it's sixteenth year on Sunday at the International Centre in Mississauga. The show featured a collection of vendors, detailed railroad displays, and an array of train paraphernalia.
As a child growing up in Toronto, there was always the iconic field trip to Black Creek Pioneer Village. The adventure was eye opening for me and my friends. Now, many years later, I decided to take my son to the 19th century historic site.
We visited the CNE at Exhibition Place. The CNE is a really special place for my family – my dad visited for the first time in 1957. The tradition continues, and 65 years later, I walked though the Princes’ Gates with my little boy and husband.
This month, the Zoo’s Exotic Conservation Carousel celebrates its birthday! On June 23, 2010, the zoo officially opened their new ‘Conservation Carousel’ which features over 30 colourful, hand-carved and painted wooden animals.
This week we visited Reptilia, a reptile zoo and education facility in Vaughan. Reptilia is a 25,000 square foot facility with 53 large reptile exhibits including: boa constrictors, python snakes, snapping turtles, just to name a few.
On Friday afternoon, I had a sneak peek at Harbourfont Centre’s World Stage production, Everything Under the Moon. The narrative of this unique show unfolds through the use of projected images, hand-animated art, shadow puppets, & song.
