5 Ways to Spend Valentine’s Day 2020 in Toronto

Having a nice dinner with your special someone is a perfectly acceptable way to spend Valentine’s Day, but let’s face it, some of us could use something a little more fun. Luckily there’s never a shortage of things to do in Toronto and today, I’ve rounded up a few date ideas guaranteed to make this Valentine’s Day, a memorable one for you.

1. Toronto Light Festival

Take a stroll through the Distillery District and explore the illuminated artworks of both local and international artists. Guided tours are also available for $49 per person complete with a tasting of samples from a local chocolate factory and brewery.

Skate down a 220-metre, figure-eight shaped rink with your special someone. When you need a break off the ice, make sure you visit the warming stations and grab some hot chocolate. If you don’t own your own skates, you can rent a pair for free on Thursdays and $10 on all other days.


3. Chocolate Making Workshop

It wouldn’t quite be Valentine’s Day without chocolate. Chocolate Tales hosts workshops across the Greater Toronto Area where chocolatiers will share with you the unique history of chocolate and teach you how to make some Belgian chocolate treats.


4. Snakes & Lattes

Cozying up at a board game cafe is one of my personal favourite ways to spend date night. Snakes & Lattes offers over 1000 games at each of their locations as well as drinks and comfort food.


5. Cheese Cave

Price: $100 per person
When: Saturday, February 15 | 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

If you’re a cheese lover, then you’re in for quite the treat. TOCA Restaurant inside of the Ritz-Carlton is home to a temperature-controlled “cave” housing around 35 varieties of cheese! The restaurant will hold a special Valentine’s Day event where you can taste and listen to the stories behind some of the cheese wheels.


Enjoy your Valentine’s Day!
