5. Head to the island
For the cost of $7 each, you get yourselves a ferry ride to and from the Toronto Islands. Pack a picnic, a Frisbee, and some well-concealed boxed wine for a cheap, but worthwhile afternoon. If you’re feeling adventurous, or just fancy a swim and you forgot to pack a suit, make your way to Hanlan’s Point Beach (Toronto’s only nude beach) for a dip in the buff.
6. Dance the night away by the lake
So long as you don’t have two left feet, you can spend a grand total of zero dollars dancing by the lake. Thursdays throughout the summer see the waterfront turned into an open-air dance floor with Dancing on the Pier, complete with a different live band each week and even dance instructors on hand to guide those whose feet do both happen to be left.
