After spending almost 8 years in Calgary, my husband and I moved back to Toronto a few years ago. Since then we’ve spent time exploring the city that we thought we already knew. Initially, I was a little overwhelmed, Toronto is after all one of the largest cities in North America, much larger than Calgary for sure. But it’s also one of the most multicultural and family friendly, and soon it felt like home.

Exploring the Betty Sutherland Trail in North York

 Enjoy The Outdoors

  1. Toronto has umpteen hiking trails and bike paths (if the weather cooperates). If you’re in the north like us, Sunnybrook Park is a family favourite with charming walks by the river and over bridges. Our other favourite is Betty Sutherland Trail in North York. This one is also by the river and eventually meanders under the 401. Quite a fun experience to see the underbelly of the overpass. Better to do this one before the weather warms up.
  2. With the Sugar Shack Festival in downtown Toronto on the first weekend of March Break, winter just got a little sweeter! Sugar shacks selling authentic maple taffy, interactive ice demos, taffy making booths, warming centres along with live music I know what we’re doing this weekend.
