It’s Valentine’s Day (Feb 14)! And it’s not too late to do something special for the one’s you love – care-givers, family and friends.
Did you know that according to RateSupermarket’s annual “Cost of Love” survey, the average Canadian spends $305.56 for a “fancy” date night (which includes a nice dinner and theatre tickets). Wow! But here are several ways to spice up this Valentine’s Day, without blowing the budget:
- Allan Gardens Conservatory at Carlton and Jarvis is a quick retreat in the heart of the city. Cost = free.
- Theatre Passe Muraille and Factory Theatre offer pay-what-you-can performances on the weekends, and often feature work by local playwrights.
- From May to October the Royal Ontario Museum has free walking tours of neighbourhoods all over downtown, explaining the architecture, history and culture of Toronto.
- Try snowshoeing in High Park
- Make an event of it with the University of Toronto’s AstroTours. It’s free, but you have to register in advance for the Planetarium show.
If you have a bigger budget, there is a Dinner Dance Celebration at Old Mill. Be captivated by the amazing voice of Matt Cage as he embraces the musical stylings of Elvis.
