- Toronto Public Library
Who knew that the library had more than books? I recently got a library card being new to the city and officially not registered as a student anymore and I had no idea all of the FREE things that come with it. There are numerous classes, seminars and workshops throughout the City for both adults and children and each location has special ticket offers. I visit the Yorkville location where they offered me tickets to the ROM… for free!
- Winterlicious 2015
It is the best excuse to eat out in the City, besides Summerlicious of course. Over 200 restaurants set a price fixed menu for lunch and dinner and all you have to do is eat a delicious gourmet meal at a discounted rate! Being hosted from January 30th-Feburary 12th, there are numerous options for any pallet and gives you the opportunity to try a few places you normally would never visit.
- York University Observatory
York University is a little town with a lot to do on its own, from NHL training facilities to the York observatory. Every Wednesday night it opens up to the public for free with donations accepted for a special viewing from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. York U invites the public to take a look through the giant telescope and learn more about astronomy.
