Travel Tuesday: Fun Fall Activities

Now that it’s officially fall, my favorite season, I wanted to share some fun things to check out and do in and around the city! Here are 15 activities to do this fall!

Downeys

1. Pumpkin Patch
I think this is a fall must do! Some of the more popular pumpkin patch farms near Toronto are Snyders Family Farm http://www.snydersfamilyfarm.com/ Downey’s Farm http://www.downeysfarm.com/ and Springridge Farm http://www.springridgefarm.com/

2. Apple Picking
The most popular place to go to, is probably Chudleigh’s http://www.chudleighs.com/ but, there is also Albion Orchards http://www.albionorchards.com/ and Country Apple Orchard Farm http://www.countryapple.ca/

3. Hiking
I love hiking, especially in the fall! I love seeing all the different colored leaves and taking photos along the way; some of my favorite places to hike are the Cheltenham Badlands http://www.ontariotrails.on.ca/trails/view/cheltenham-hills the Bruce Trail & Niagara Escarpment http://brucetrail.org/pages/about-us/the-niagara-escarpment and the Don Valley Trail http://www.trca.on.ca/walkthedon/

4. Ghost Tour
Even though I am scared of most ghost tours, I always have fun on them and there is always something to be learned no matter what city you’re in. Toronto offers one of the most fun ghost tours as it’s a Segway Ghost Tour! How fun is that?! It starts in the Distillery, where there are so many great restaurants and bars. You could have a drink before hand to take the edge off and once on the Segway you might have too much fun to be scared. http://www.segwayofontario.com/#!segway-tours/c6y8

5. Cat Café
This Cat Café is at College and Spadina. I need to get there and report back, haha. If you’re a cat lover, you’ll want to head there ASAP! Check out their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/torontocatcafe?fref=ts and their website http://www.totthecatcafe.com/

6. Harry Potter Themed Bar
If you’re a HP (Harry Potter) fan you’ll appreciate the name of the bar The Lockhart http://www.thelockhart.ca/ located at 1479 Dundas St W.

7. Warhol at TIFF
Another Warhol exhibition is coming to Toronto from October 30 until January 24. The TIFF Bell Lightbox will host Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen, an exhibition in conjunction with the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the artist’s hometown. The show is going to feature more than 800 pieces of artwork as well as episodes from Warhol’s television series. http://tiff.net/exhibitions/upcoming-exhibitions/andy-warhol-exhibition

8. It’s Halloween! My favorite Holiday! Go To A Halloween Party
You could check out the Church Street street party! Becoming known as the biggest Halloween party in North America! http://www.churchwellesleyvillage.ca/#!events/cj0i, The Gladstone Hotel is hosting The Grandstone Budapest Hotel Halloween Party! I personally think that it sounds like a lot of fun! https://www.facebook.com/events/1670678419845708/ or maybe check out Screemers, I actually don’t think I could handle it, Haha. http://screemers.ca/toronto/ or Halloween Haunt at Canada’s Wonderland https://www.canadaswonderland.com/haunt/

9. Movember
Movember is around the corner! Support someone or host a Movember party to celebrate those who will be growing their beards and raising money for a very great cause. https://ca.movember.com/

10. High Park
High Park is such an amazing place to visit and explore during the fall and winter. High park has so much to offer including a zoo, various picnic areas and beautiful gardens that transform in the fall when the leaves turn from green to red, yellow and orange. To see what else the park has to offer, visit the link below. http://www.highparktoronto.com

11. Don Valley Evergreen Brick Works
Evergreen Brickworks used to be exactly that, a former quarry and industrial site. This used to be quarry has now been transformed and has a large offering of things to do. There is an amazing farmers market, and coming up on the 25th will be the Etsy market that will start at 10am. For more on this amazing place, visit their website. http://www.evergreen.ca/get-involved/evergreen-brick-works/

12. Skyzone
Now that it is getting cold, there is no more fun way to warm up then at Skyzone Trampoline Park, the ultimate playground. http://www.skyzone.com

13. Paint Lounge
I get nostalgic whenever I see my younger cousins colouring or painting. Now I can paint too, with the added bonus of being able to enjoy a warm cup of coffee. Let your inner artist out at various paint lounge locations in Toronto. http://www.paintlounge.ca

14. Niagara Falls
The infamous falls are still a wonder of the world. This tourist attraction is so beautiful to visit during the fall when everything is changing and especially in the winter when partial parts of the falls freeze. Aside from the falls, the Niagara region has so much to offer; from wine tastings to the Niagara Skywheel, there is something for everyone. http://www.niagarafallstourism.com/play/

15. Ice Skating
We’re not there yet but it won’t be long until we have our ice rinks ready to go. This activity is one that can be enjoyed by all. Check the link to find the rink for you. http://www.toronto.com/things-to-do/articles/where-to-ice-skate-in-toronto/

    Excellent ideas Tara. The cat cafe is quite interesting, but fun. I found this website http://www.ActivityChief.com as a great source of interesting and unique activities to do in Toronto and the GTA.
