Leisure Club Toronto’s team of socialization experts sets up approximately 15 events each month around the greater Toronto area to give guests—many of them singles or single parents—a chance to meet new friends. Activities may include murder-mystery dinner theatre, learning to make chocolate, or trips to see touring comedy groups. Each low-key outing is intended to build friendships naturally around individual hobbies and interests, creating an easier way to connect than just standing downtown and shouting “anyone here like bowling?” for a couple of hours.
During all four seasons, The team at Toronto Adventures Inc. smuggle urbanites out of their condos and A-frames and into the area's nearby-yet-faraway outdoor streams, trails, and forests. In winter, the guides lead groups snowshoeing in the Humber Valley, and in warmer months, they glide teams over two rivers for kayaking and canoeing adventures. Paddlers cast gentle ripples over waters that harbour salmon and turtles while admiring shores that shelter deer, foxes, and blue heron.
Summer enthusiasts can also bask in the warm weather by sailing on Lake Ontario in keelboats, staring directly into the sun, or standing astride a paddleboard at Sunnyside Beach. For land lovers, guided hikes explore the Humber and Rouge valleys as well as the Bruce Trail.
ISX Tours' passionate guides illuminate Canada's cultural and geographic diversity, blazing charter bus trails to camera-worthy destinations. During the Niagara Falls day trip, guests hop aboard spacious charter buses from Pacific Western Transportation, whose gentle purr harmonizes with sing-a-longs on the all-day expedition. Buses that depart on August 28 or September 11 release passengers outside of one of Ontario's award-winning wineries, where oenophiles can tour the premises and sample wines while scoping out new bottle-homes for miniature ships. Alternatively, buses that depart on August 27 or September 10 lead passengers to the Canada One Factory Outlets mall teeming with 40 brand-name stores. Next, tour groups infiltrate Niagara-on-the-Lake, admiring quaint shops and historic sites. Buses then cruise alongside the Niagara River, stopping at Whirlpool Gorge for passengers to marvel at its circular currents that stem from schools of indecisive fish. While in Niagara Falls, clients can also opt to embark on a Maid of the Mist boat tour or climb to the top of the Skylon Tower. Alternatively, sightseers can spend their day meandering through Niagara Falls before hopping back on the bus and reuniting with Toronto by 8:30 p.m.
Once one of the largest liquor producers in the world, the enormous complex of the Gooderham and Worts Distillery used to turn out millions of gallons a year and contribute more taxes to the government than any other single enterprise. After closing in 1990 following 153 years of continuous operation, the distillery's buildings remained the largest collection of Victorian industrial architecture in North America, playing host to hundreds of movie sets while the interiors lay fallow.
Beginning in 2001, an ambitious renovation program transformed the district into a thriving village, overflowing with art, food, and entertainment while preserving the area's historic architecture. Todays, dozens of restaurants, art galleries, and theatres occupy the antique brick structures, welcoming visitors as they walk around the pedestrian-only district and make faces at the excluded cars outside.
