Head Outdoors for Spring Fun in Toronto

Head Outdoors for Spring Fun | Toronto, ON

Now that the weather is warming up in Toronto, it’s a great time to head outdoors for some springtime fun! Here are some of our top picks for things to do this spring.

High Park Cherry Blossoms

You don’t have to travel to Japan to view the beauty of the Sakura, or cherry blossom, tree. Viewing these gorgeous trees is a Toronto tradition and you can see them in a variety of parks in the area during spring. Try stopping by Edwards Gardens, just 6km from our location, to see them for yourself.

Kensington Market

If you want to spend a weekend shopping and enjoying delicious food, consider stopping by Kensington Market. Right in the heart of downtown, you’ll find various vendors offering antiquities, unique art, and diverse food options. The area is free to walk around, but it’s always great to give back to the local community by supporting these shops, too.

Historical Building Walking Tour

Through the use of the “GPSmyCity: Walks in 1K+ Cities” mobile app, you can easily go on a self-guided tour of Toronto. Visit some of the city’s top historical sights like the Campbell House Museum, Old City Hall, St. James Anglican Cathedral, and more.

Another great way to spend a spring day is browsing our vehicle selection at Avenue Nissan and taking one of them for a test drive. Contact our team to learn more about how you can do this!
