Toronto is a beautiful city full of vibrancy and a unique culture. While there’s never a shortage of awesome fun family events and activities taking place in the city, most visitors would probably agree that summer is arguably the best time of year to visit. To make your stay here all the more memorable and special, consider looking for furnished homes for rent in Toronto.
Furnished apartments for rent in Toronto feel a lot like a home away from home. With amazing amenities like professional cleaning services and high-end security, you can enjoy all of the comforts of being in a hotel without having to pay astronomical fees for you and your family. The best part is that most furnished apartments in Toronto are centrally located in the downtown core with public transit nearby, so you’ll be right in the middle of all the action this summer.
Here’s all the fun stuff you and your family can do this summer while staying in a furnished residence in Toronto.
Cool Off at a Public Pool
Summer temperatures in Toronto can reach upwards of 30 degrees Celsius—especially in the middle of July. So it’s a good thing there are plenty of public swimming pools throughout the city to keep you and your family cool all summer long. Some of the most popular outdoor public swimming pools include the new High Park Pool, Greenwood Park Outdoor Pool, Alex Duff Memorial Pool, and Monarch Park Pool. Sunnyside Gus Ryder Outdoor Pool, which is within walking distance of the scenic Lakeshore, is also extremely popular in the summer months.
Check Out Some Food Festival Fun
What could be more fun than exploring Toronto and trying out some delicious cultural cuisine at the same time? Summer is the season of outdoor cookouts and food festivals—both of which are in abundance in Toronto!
Indulge your senses with all the aromatic smells and flavours that other cultures have to offer by attending some of the most popular food festivals in Toronto! From the famous Toronto Food Truck Festival to Toronto Ribfest, Taste of the Middle East, and Taste of the Danforth, there’s no shortage of food frenzied fun happening in the city this summer!
Enjoy a Few Street Festivals
Nothing goes hand-in-hand quite like food and street festivals. Both are a collaborative celebration of food, culture, and entertainment. They also give you a unique opportunity to explore different neighbourhoods throughout Toronto, especially those close to your furnished apartment, and get to know some of the locals who enrich the city with their vast cultural expressions. Street performances, taste testing, live shows and so much more await you and your family events such as Big on Bloor, Dundas West Fest, Salsa on St. Clair, and Toronto Jazz Festival.
For a complete list of all of the street festivals taking place in Toronto, check out the City of Toronto’s Festivals and Events page.
Enjoy a Movie Under the Stars
We only get a few precious months of beautiful sunshine and warm temperatures in Toronto, so why not spend as much time outdoors as possible? A number of well-known public places will be hosting free outdoor movie viewings in the evenings for families to enjoy together. Make memories with your kids that’ll last a lifetime by allowing them to experience the thrill of watching a movie outdoors. Regent Park, Yonge-Dundas Square, Harbourfront, and Christie Pits are just some of the locations hosting outdoor movie viewing events this summer.
Have you always wanted to try skydiving but are too scared to actually jump out of a real aircraft? Well, you’re not alone! Toronto has numerous high-tech skydiving facilities to give visitors that feeling of flying through the air without actually having to do it. Choose your own adventure or take your loved ones along with you. Before you strap into the skydiving gear, you’ll have to undergo some brief training, but once that’s finished it’s smooth sailing—or should we say flying—from there!
Visit Canada’s Wonderland
No first time visit to Toronto is complete without checking out one of Canada’s most well-known amusement parks, Canada’s Wonderland! Every year the park hosts special events like Canada Day celebrations, live performances, and they even add new thrilling roller coasters for the adrenaline junkies in all of us! You can purchase day passes or season passes depending on how long you plan on staying.
Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus Tours
Sightseeing in general can be very tiring, especially walking from neighbourhood to neighbourhood from your short-term furnished apartment in Toronto. That’s where guided hop-on-hop-off tour buses come in handy! You can still see all of the amazing sights Toronto has to offer from historical buildings to beautiful parks, shopping centers and more, but you get to decide where and when you want to get off the bus! Not only is this a fun and interactive way to see the city, but you can also learn a little bit about the history and culture of its diverse neighbourhoods.
Take a Ferry to Toronto Islands
Toronto has a lot of stunning beaches to enjoy on the mainland, but there’s nothing quite like taking a ferry out to the historic Toronto Islands for a day to soak up the sun, sights, and sounds. Take the kids to the famous Centerville amusement park, frolic in the waters at Ward’s Island, or bask in the beauty of Hanlan’s Point at sunset.
There’s no denying the city has a lot to offer in the summer months. So why not rent a furnished home in Toronto from MAC Furnished Residences Inc. and get the most out of your trip?
