Four fun free things to do with the family in Toronto during a deep freeze!

Wowza, it’s STILL cold out there! What the what? By this point, most of us are geared up for winter, so why not take advantage of this continuing winter weather and sneak in a few more cold-weather outings while you can. Plus, these four activities are all free except for the post-outing hot chocolates, those you’ll have to pay for.

Can’t think of a better way to thrill and exhaust the kids than sending them down a neighbourhood slope and watching them race back up again! Dress warmly and consider a helmet.
