Indulge in a city’s worth of desserts
If fondue isn’t your thing, then it’s time to flirt with the city’s thriving dessert scene. Skip the lines at Menchie’s and find a new vice at Sweet Jesus, Cacao 70, Glory Hole, Crepe TO, Wafels & More, Peace Treats, Frosty Roll, Sweet Esc Dessert Cafe, and/or Rosen’s Cinnamon Buns.
Escape to a winter chalet
Most Toronto singles wouldn’t dare go on a date that’s west of Roncy or east of Woodbine. But if you need a break from the city, then a winter chalet’s for you. Dozens of cabins are available for rent in nearby spots such as Coldwater, Calabogie, Horseshoe Valley, and Collingwood, and they’re ideal for hiking, tubing, snowmobiling, and low key nights that involve Netflix and a fireplace.
Discover the joys of skijoring
A cameo from man’s best friend can save a date from being absolutely dreadful, so it only makes sense to take on the dog days of winter with actual dogs. Skijoring -- aka “ski driving” in Norwegian -- is a combination of cross-country skiing and dog sledding, and it’s worth the trip to Quiet Bay Lodge, Woodland Echoes, or Arrowhead Provincial Park for a session with The SportLab.
