Winter in Canada.
Many of us do not look forward to this time of year. Some of us like to hibernate and hide throughout the cold winter months. I have joked since I was a teenager that I was adopted and was actually born in Jamaica, I disliked the cold that much. But if you are a Canadian you've probably had to suck it up, buy a warm jacket and get on with it.
If you have that warm jacket, put it on and go outside. Don't hide inside! There are so many fun adventures waiting for you to experience in this city.
There are many things to do in Toronto in the winter, but today we will take you along for the ride.... er, skate... to the rink at Nathan Phillips Square. Watch the video below:
If you aren't close to Nathan Phillips Square, there are many places around the city that you will find outdoor skating rinks. Many have change rooms and some rent skates for a minimal charge. Weather depending, they normally will open at the end of November and close in March. Links to some of our picks are below in orange:
