My favourite Christmas places to visit in Toronto

It is a long-time without blogging . Well, is never too late to do what you love. In this opportunity, I want to share my last experience visiting my three favourite places during this Christmas season here in Toronto.

Winter Festival at Canada Wonderland


It is a totally new experience and for all that we enjoyed the fee is way worth it and affordable (around $30). We felt like we were living a beautiful experience – similar to Disney World with all the magic – right here in our own city. Many lights around, performers in every corner, a couple rides operating, plus lots of Instagrammable spots, including it a ginger spot, candy alley, giant Xmas decoration balls, a nutcracker band, and carolers! If you ask me if this was a worthwhile experience… I will say: totally yes! It’s an amazing experience and we all loved it, both my husband and child. We run into scrooge, so fun!

1. Lighting tree ceremony, We came on opening night, more exactly the last week in November. Just in time for the lighting tree ceremony which takes place around 5:00 pm and includes a great performance by a group of singers 


2. Santa Claus magical moment. My child enjoyed a lot, he took his time to write a letter to Santa and recently we were surprised as we received a response letter from Santa himself!

3. Toy factory show at the main theatre. Can’t miss! This 30-minute play takes place in an indoor theatre with great actors and amazing stunts

Glow Toronto

We enjoyed the many attraction this place offers, including interactive light gardens, playgrounds, a teddy bear area, hanging lights light tunnel, and yes, drinks that light up in a light bulb! There is also live music, lots of food stalls and other Christmas- themed stuff. The venue is huge and is considered the world’s largest indoor holiday festival.

Toronto Christmas Market at the Distillery District

We enjoy a lot the Xmas spirit as we stroll through the many alleys, gaze the enormous Christmas tree – beautifully decorated – the always amazing shops, and top-notch restaurants. We like wrapping up our tour of the market with a visit to Balzac’s Coffee where we enjoy a hot chocolate or latte.
