While we may not be ready to think about it, fall is just around the corner. With the change of season comes a busier time for the whole family, balancing school, work and extracurricular activities. As we enter the last month of summer, it’s the perfect time to gather the family and take advantage of the warm weather.
The retailers in the Toronto PATH have everything you need to help you enjoy some of city’s best family-focused activities this August.
The Canadian National Exhibition
Enjoy an exciting day at one of the most iconic attractions of the summer, The CNE. Running from August 18th until September 4th, the CNE is 18 days of amusement, rides, games, entertainment, and tasty food. Purchase tickets on your way home from work through the PATH at the Union Station Go terminal.
A day spent at the CNE will inevitably mean a whole day outside with plenty of walking. Ensure that the whole family is dressed for the occasion by picking up a comfortable but stylish outfit at Jazz Casuals, situated in MetroCentre and appropriate footwear from Mateo Fine Shoes or BB Buggy located in Royal Bank Plaza.
The Wizard of Oz at the Lower Ossington Theatre
Bring your kids to see the beloved story that’s been entertaining for generations, The Wizard of Oz, playing at the Lower Ossington Theatre. Running until August 27th, the show follows the timeless tale of a Kansas farm girl who travels over the rainbow.
Why not make an evening of it by grabbing an elegant meal before the show? Stop by Richmond-Adelaide Centre and enjoy dinner at Hy’s Steakhouse or if you’re seeing a Saturday matinee grab a delicious lunch at The Keg.
The Toronto Islands
After extensive flooding, The Toronto Islands has finally reopened and what better way to say adieu to summer than enjoying a beautiful day on the Islands? Take your bikes over on the ferry for a family adventure and spend the day on one of the beaches. You can also enjoy the Centreville theme park and other popular attractions like Far Enough Farm which have reopened for the month of August.
Be sure to protect your family from the sun with a reliable sunscreen and a good pair of sunglasses. You can pick up sunscreen on your way to the ferry at Shoppers Drug Mart, in Royal Bank Plaza or Consonant Skincare in Richmond-Adelaide Centre. A great selection of sunglasses can be found at Hakim Optical in Royal Bank Plaza.
August is the perfect time for a family vacation, while the kids are still out of school and you can find great deals to some beautiful destinations. Stop by Flight Centre in Richmond-Adelaide Centre or MetroCentre for advice on all the latest travel deals. Travel Sensations in Royal Bank Plaza also offers great seasonal promotions. Be sure to capture the whole trip with a camera from the Source in Royal Bank Plaza.
With the last month of summer officially underway, Your Toronto PATH retailers have everything your family will need to enjoy these exciting activities together.
