The weather is wetter and colder here in Toronto, and the glorious sunshine of the excellent summer we were blessed with this year is starting to become a distant memory.
However, there’s no shortage of fun and interesting indoor activities on offer in our wonderful city that are perfect for a rainy day. Here are 6 ways to enjoy your next rainy day in Toronto.
Let’s get started.
Art Gallery Of Ontario
317 Dundas St W
The internationally renowned Art Gallery Of Ontario has to be at the top of any rainy day activity list for visitors and locals alike. There are over 95,000 different works of art inside the walls of the magnificent gallery. With over 45,000 square meters of floor space, it’s one of the largest Galleries in North America, so even if it rains all day – you’re going to have plenty of exhibits to enjoy.
288 Bremner Blvd
Located in downtown Toronto (reasonably close to the CN tower) for many people, Ripley’s aquarium is a must-see attraction in the city – whatever the weather. There’s a mind-bogglingly big collection of aquatic life on display here from all over the world. For many people, the smaller (and stranger) species are often the most interesting here, however, the huge sharks that call the aquarium home are undoubtedly the stars of the show.
Toronto is home to a wide range of excellent comedy bars that will have you laughing so hard that you forget all about the wet and potentially windy weather outside. If you don’t know where to start, then we recommend you check out Yuk Yuk’s, Second City, or Comedy Bar Toronto – all of which are loved by visitors and Torontonians alike.
Royal Ontario Museum
100 Queens Park
No collection of rainy day activities in Toronto would be complete without mentioning the magnificent Royal Ontario Museum. The museum is the largest and most visited in all of Canada (over 1 million people visit here annually) and it contains several educational and interesting world culture, and natural history exhibits. Use our very own discount code MONTECARLOINN to receive 20% off general admission.
Tip:The ROM closes at 5.30pm most days, which is perhaps a little earlier than you may expect. Arrive early in the day to get the full experience.
Sky Zone Toronto
45 Esandar Dr
If you’re visiting Toronto with children, then Sky Zone is a great way for them to burn off their energy on a rainy day through what Sky Zone like to call “fun fitness”. You and the kids can experience weightlessness and the feeling of flight on the numerous different kinds of trampolines (and foam pits) that have been installed here.
While trampolines on their own are a lot of fun, it’s the group games that are often the most fun, and the exhilaration of playing dodgeball on a trampoline is something that needs to be experienced to be fully appreciated.
Tip:Be sure to wear loose clothing that is suitable for physical activity. There’s a good chance you’re going to get hot and sweaty (without even realizing it) while bouncing around all day.
Curl Up With A Movie
Monte Carlo Inns, Multiple Locations
As you can see, there’s no shortage of exciting activities to enjoy in Toronto when the weather is a little wetter than we’d like. However, facing the rain (even for a little while) can sometimes seem too much like hard work…
When you feel like this, there’s nothing better than staying indoors and having a little “you time”.
Why not get dressed in your comfiest clothes and curl up by the fireplace in one of our luxurious suites?You can then choose a blockbuster movie from the wide selection on our in-house entertainment system and forget all about the miserable weather outside.
Tip:Don’t forget to order a tasty treat or two from our extensive room service menu to complete the ultimate indoor rainy day experience.
