Happy Friday, Toronto!
Secret Toronto wants to help make sure you have a fantastic weekend and keep you informed! We’ll be putting out “Don’t miss” and “ICYMI” plans and new for you each week so you’ll always catch an incredible event or story.
1. Cherry Blossoms are blooming: Here’s where to see them
It was an exciting week in Toronto as High Park, one of the best spots to see Cherry Blossoms, went into full bloom a bit earlier than expected. While High Park is definitely a great spot to see the sakura blossoms, we can help you beat the crowd with this handy guide of several other amazing spots to see cherry blossoms in the city.
2. The Jurassic World Experience has just opened in Mississauga
Fans of the Jurassic World series will be excited to know that a larger-than-life experience has landed in Mississauga. Trek through the wilderness looking for dinos and get an up-close look at Tyrannosaurus Rex of epic proportions and snap a few pics if you want.
3. Catch a gorgeous candlelight concert
Some of Toronto’s most stunning venues will be bathed in candlelight this weekend for those perfect and relaxed end of week vibes. This is the last weekend to see a classic concert dedicated to Taylor Swift, plus you can see awesome shows dedicated to Queen and more.
4. Get your brunch on at one of these beautiful restaurants
Bottomless brunch, fluffy pancakes, and gorgeous restaurants? Toronto’s got that and more. We included spots with gorgeous terraces, global cuisine like Turkish and Southeast Asian, and stunning interiors for you to book a table at this weekend.
5. You can visit a Victorian-era garden
If you haven’t ever visited Allan Gardens Conservatory, then now is your chance. A gorgeous Victorian-era botanical garden that houses 5 separate greenhouses in a beautiful glass-domed building, it’s the perfect way to spend a spring weekend.
6. Visit a museum for free on Sunday
We wrote up an entire list of museums that offer free entry this past week for all you arts and culture lovers out there. If you’re looking for something to do on Sunday nights, you won’t want to miss Bata Shoe Museum, an epic and iconic Toronto museum featuring shoe designs throughout history and cross the globe. Best of all its free on Sundays from 12-5pm.
