For a bonding experience made for thrill-seekers, visit the CN Tower’s Edgewalk. Boasted as Toronto’s tallest attraction, Edgewalk will get your adrenaline pumping and provide you and your date the opportunity to see Toronto from a unique perspective. At the top of the CN Tower, take a stroll outside around the roof. You’ll be secured with safety equipment, but at 116 stories above the ground, this experience and perspective is only for the brave and daring. The memorable experience can help you create a lasting bond with your date and will definitely give you some quality conversation over dinner or drinks later on in the evening.

Dance Under Dinosaurs at ROM

The Royal Ontario Museum hosts an event called Friday Night Live. With live music and dancing encouraged, attendees can dance under a complete dinosaur fossil and share drinks among the exhibits. A special experience to be shared with history or art enthusiasts, events at the Royal Ontario Museum are subject to change. Be sure to check their website for updates on rules, regulations, current events, and rotating exhibits. Impress your significant other and plan a night to remember.

See the Stars on the Screen Under the Stars

For a sweet and romantic night that is economical, take advantage of movies under the stars hosted by several of the parks around Toronto including the park at Christie Pits, St. James, Sail-in Cinema on Sugar Beach, and Regent Park. They typically have screenings during summer continuing through September, but be sure to check with each venue for a list of showings to enjoy the beautiful Toronto night sky. You can snack on some popcorn, enjoy a drink, and focus on getting to know one another. Remember to take a blanket or some cozy chairs to snuggle up in comfort.

If you have a book enthusiast on your hands, or if you are one, visit the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library. Located on St. George Street, this beautiful building houses Canada’s largest collection of rare books available to the public and is a singular opportunity to peruse first editions and unique manuscripts including a handwritten draft of “The Handmaid’s Tale” by Margaret Atwood. Their collection presents a special opportunity to appreciate the written word and to create lifelong memories.

Get Active at Pursuit OCR

Pursuit OCR is essentially a large indoor park that allows adults the opportunity to be kids again and play and run and chase to their heart’s content. Recreate the simple joys of childhood in a gender-neutral and inclusive atmosphere where you can climb, crawl, run, and roll around free of judgement. Various obstacle courses are available to meet the needs of those with differing abilities and levels of athleticism.

On their website they state that if you can climb stairs, there is a course for you. The more demanding courses provide an opportunity to change plans by letting participants let go, and fall safely into a giant ball pit. This spot is a particularly suitable date night destination for energetic, athletic, and competitive couples. You can learn about one another through sport and create a memorable experience by reliving and revisiting childhood together.
