Things to do in December (on a student budget)


It has been five days since the start of December, so the holiday season is in full swing. Christmas music is playing in all stores, colourful lights are everywhere, and snow has already fallen. To embrace this season, here are some things to do in Toronto this December:

Go skating – Find the positive in the cold and do the opposite of swimming – that’s right, go skating. Outdoor and indoor skating rinks are available, many of which are free. Some rinks to check out are Nathan Phillips Square ($15 to rent skates), Bentway Trail ($12 to rent skates), and High Park Rink. 


Visit the Distillery Winter Village – When one thinks of the holidays in Toronto, the Distillery Winter Village is one of the first things to come to mind. Characterized by its 56-foot-tall Dior Christmas tree and the Countdown to Christmas sign, the Distillery Winter Village is the place for Instagram-worthy photo opportunities. The experience is enhanced with live music and great eats. Mondays-Thursdays are free admission, and Fridays-Sundays are ticketed after 4 pm. Tickets start at $15.


Grab some wintery treats – Withstanding the cold winter weather is an achievement and calls for some sweet treats. Stay true to the holiday spirit by getting something holiday-themed! Some suggestions are gingerbread white chocolate cookies from Craig’s Cookies, hot chocolate from SOMA Chocolatemaker, and holiday-themed donuts (specifically the Buddy Snow Globe) from Krispy Kreme.


Take a winter walk – While hiking in the winter is not talked about, it is a great way to pass the time. The winter calls for many beautiful landscapes, perfect for artists, photographers, and anyone who wants a good view. A few must-see places are the Toronto Islands, Rouge Park, and The Scarborough Bluffs Trail.


With this, the countdown to Winter Break begins so try to do something fun this season!
