Things to Do in Toronto this Summer – Toronto PATH

It’s time to prepare for sunny days and fun, warm nights as things heat up in Toronto. Summer is a great time to explore new places and try different activities in the city, but where do you start? Here are several ideas from Oxford Properties and your Toronto PATH retailers on how to enjoy the city to the fullest this summer.


Attend a music festival
With festivals popping up left, right and centre, there’s no excuse not to attend at least one! Whether you want a chill vibe at TD Jazz Fest or an upbeat weekend at VELD Music Festival, there are plenty of options to choose from. Pop into Jazz Casuals in MetroCentre for some fun new digs before the big event, or browse through Reitmans down the hall for some classic and comfortable festival wear. A bag is definitely an essential for day-long adventures, so stop by Highfields in Richmond-Adelaide Centre to pick out something trendy and practical.

Don’t forget the sunscreen while rocking out to the tunes! Head to Rexall, located in both MetroCentre and Richmond-Adelaide Centre, and stock up on SPF. Your skin will thank you for it.

Use the downtime to relax
With so much going on, it can be easy to overbook yourself and eventually burn out. Make sure to take a few moments in the coming months for some self-care. Luckily, downtown Toronto is a major hub for quality professional services that are sure to make you feel like a million bucks.

Rejuvenating acupuncture and chiropractic services can be found at Downtown Core in Royal Bank Plaza. For injury-specific therapy, head to MCI Physiotherapy and speak with one of their specialists. If you’re looking for a simple head-to-toe relaxing massage, MetroCentre’s Sutherland-Chan Clinics will make sure you’re feeling relaxed and ready for any adventure.

Enjoy the great outdoors
This goes without saying, but try and spend as much time as you can outside this summer. Believe it or not, there are plenty of beautiful parks and trails to spend your days exploring, all within the city! In fact, hiking in Toronto is easier than ever now that the trail system became connected to The Great Trail. It runs right through the city via the Waterfront Trail, the Don Valley and the Rouge, so make sure to check it out if you’re an avid hiker.

First things first, you’ll need a proper pair of shoes. Mateo Fine Shoes Inc. in Royal Bank Plaza can hook you up with some supportive footwear, such as a trendy pair of Geox runners. Sunglasses are also a must to protect your eyes and keep from squinting, so head down the hall to Hakim Optical for a quality pair. Last but not least, make your way to MetroCentre and visit the Marketplace to pick up some healthy snacks and water for your excursion. You’ll need the fuel!

Of course, if you simply must leave the city this summer, you can always book a quick getaway through MetroCentre’s Flight Centre. Don’t forget to purchase some quality luggage from Tumi and a good airplane read from Indigo, both located in Royal Bank Plaza!

With the trusted help of Oxford Properties and your Toronto PATH retailers, you’ll be all set to enjoy your summer in the city!
