The city of Toronto is a hub of culture and activity. It’s also the largest city in Canada and one of North America’s most livable cities. Whether you’re planning a trip to this vibrant metropolis with your partner or a group of friends, it’s important to choose the right activities for a memorable experience.

When we asked locals and visitors what made an extraordinary, Toronto-defining experience, almost everyone said it had to do with the five core factors listed below:

A must-visit museum

If you’re looking for a unique activity to add to your trip to the city of Toronto, visit Canada’s largest museum, the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). The ROM is both a history museum and art gallery, bringing together a stunning collection of artwork and natural wonders from around the world. The ROM’s interactive exhibits are sure to interest even the most cultured of minds.

ROM After Dark is another fun and immersive activity to try while in Toronto. Designed to represent diversity and bring people together, ROM After Dark features a curated collection of visual arts, music, hands-on activities, light projections, and live pop-up performances. In addition to this, ROM After Dark also features delicious theme-inspired food and drinks from local vendors.

Axe throwing

If your team members have a strong need to channel their inner lumberjack, axe throwing is a great Toronto-based activity that’s both hilarious and surprisingly effective. BATL Toronto adult activities toronto offers hour-long axe throwing sessions where you and your team will get to throw axes and hammers with precision and accuracy, or just have a good old fashioned blast of rage!

Pottery classes

If you have a team that is into woodworking, pottery classes are a fun way to get them hands-on with an activity they’ll enjoy. You and your team can take a lesson from esteemed instructors who teach wheel-throwing, slab-building or hand-building techniques to make unique pottery pieces like vases, cups and sculptures!

Virtual wine tasting

If you work in a remote location, virtual wine tastings can be a great team building activity. Expert sommeliers will guide you through a wide selection of regional, domestic and international wines. During the session, you’ll learn about grape varieties and food pairings as well as differences between merlot, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc.

Indoor photography challenge

Whether you have kids or adults, an indoor photography challenge is a fun and creative way to get everyone involved. You’ll all work together to take photos, set a time limit and see who can get the best shots.

Outdoors and nature lovers

If your team members are more into the outdoors than indoors, then a visit to Toronto Island Park is an ideal experience. This park is a collection of four islands that can be easily reached via ferry and provides spectacular views of the city. There are walking trails, beaches and rides for everyone to enjoy!

A great place to unwind and reconnect with nature, Riverdale Farm is a fully functional farm located in the heart of the city. It’s a perfect place for couples or families to spend an afternoon. There’s even a children’s playground and picnic areas where you can eat lunch.
