The Best Places to Propose in Toronto
As the largest city in Canada, there is no shortage of great places to propose to your partner in Toronto. In fact, narrowing down the good options and finding the truly unforgettable ones is the bigger challenge. To provide you with a little assistance in picking out the best place for you to propose, we have assembled a list of some of the premier romantic locations that will be ideal for a proposal this coming winter season.
Christmas Glow Toronto
Over the winter season, there is no better place to propose to your partner than at the Christmas Glow festival. Toronto is fortunate to be one of the cities where this incredible event is being held this year – and making it a part of your pending engagement will ensure that the occasion is a memorable one! The event features numerous Christmas light displays that provide the ideal backdrop for enhancing the romance of an evening or for getting closer to your partner. After walking through the area for a while, you are sure to feel when the moment is right to get down on one knee. When you are finished and looking to celebrate, stop by one of the many food or beverage vendors and enjoy a seasonal treat together. You might even see Santa Claus walking around if you are lucky!
During an Art Tour
Toronto is known for its many museums dedicated to arts of all kinds. Since the right kind of art can go a long way towards setting the right ambiance for a romantic proposal, deciding to propose as part of an art tour or art crawl through several museums is a great idea. Even walking through the city and enjoying some Toronto street art can inspire you and allow you to know just what to say when you are getting ready to pop the question. If the weather is not so inviting, then keep your proposal indoors at either the Art Gallery of Toronto or the Ryerson Image Centre.
Take Your Date for a Skate
If you think that you will need to work off some anxiety before popping the big question, then try going for an active date before you propose. Skating rinks in Toronto are a great and potentially romantic option for setting the right environment for such an event. In the city, you can check out the outdoor rink near the Harbourfront Centre in the downtown area. As an alternative, try the newer Bentway which is quickly becoming one of the more popular winter venues in the city.
Sweeten Up at a Maple Sugar Festival
In late winter, the Toronto Maple Sugar Festival is a unique event that can set a great backdrop for a creative proposal. Sugar Shack Toronto puts on this event where you can buy as much maple taffy as you can eat (just make sure not to get sick before you go through with your plan)! The festival also offers an interesting obstacle course and the chance to observe some ice-sculpting (with chainsaws). In this remote setting, you will be able to find the right opportunity in the midst of all the fun to make a great proposal memory.
Even near the city of Toronto itself, there are great opportunities for cross-country skiing – a classic winter date idea! Plan a trip to the Toronto Islands (just offshore from the city’s downtown core) to set the date or your proposal. Once you are out on the trails, you are sure to find the right moment to snap out of your skis and get down on one knee.
The Roundhouse Winter Craft Beer Festival
If you think that you will need a bit of liquid courage to work up the nerve to propose, then be sure to check out the Roundhouse Winter Craft Beer Festival in Toronto this season. Unlike other beer festivals, this one is held almost entirely outdoors by Steam Whistle Brewery. Amid the great food and drink offerings, you and your partner can spend a great afternoon enjoying each others’ company until you find the moment that works for a magical proposal.
Any of the above options are great choices for a memorable proposal this winter season. However, the choices are endless for romantic venues in Toronto. Find one that suits the dynamic of your relationship and your proposal is sure to be successful!
