Winter in Toronto is a magical time. The city lights glisten off the iced-over treetops as this bustling metropolis transforms into a winter wonderland. The Toronto Light Festival provides the perfect escape from the dark days of winter. Marvel at the brilliant outdoor light installations that are created by local artists. If you’re visiting around the holidays, stroll through the holiday markets around the city, and pick up any last-minute gift items you may need. The Bentway Skate Trail is an iconic part of Toronto winters. This urban skating rink is a hidden gem, located underneath the Gardiner Expressway. For a truly magical winter experience, take a trip to Niagara Falls to see the cascading falls frozen over. The gushing falls completely freeze over in the winter, creating a glistening attraction you have to see to believe.
