Free things to do in Toronto
As Canada's busiest city and a province capital, Toronto is brimming with fine dining options, nightlife opportunities and exciting attractions. Its renown as a travel hotspot also means that, whether you're visiting from within Ontario or outside of Canada, a trip here can cost a pretty penny. But visitors can save money with a Toronto car rental through Thrifty Car Rental, which provides reliable transportation options that come with excellent Toronto deals. To help you stick to your travel budget, the company also has some suggestions for free things to do while you're here:
Walk around Riverdale Farm
Get in a Toronto car rental and head downtown to Riverdale Farm, a 7-acre landscape that is open to the public. Guests are welcome to come and discover the workings of a 20th century farm. You'll see cows, pigs, sheep, goats and horses, among other livestock. Feel free to ask the farm workers questions as you watch them feed and care for the animals.
Spend an afternoon at High Park
Visitors won't need their Toronto rental cars for this excursion. The delightful High Park, located on Bloor Street, is a gorgeous public park that you'll explore by foot. It's the largest in the city and is filled with a complex system of trails, lush greenery, colorful flora and gorgeous greenhouses. There are plenty of playgrounds for the kids to keep busy in, and animal lovers will like the mini zoo here - it's home to bison, llamas, peacocks, deer and other creatures. At the park, you can join in on a game at one of the sports facilities, such as the soccer field, baseball diamond or tennis court. This site also features a dog park and, in case you get hungry, a couple of restaurants. To save money, you might consider packing a picnic beforehand to enjoy on the grass under the shade of a tree.
