There’s nothing more quintessentially Fall than picking apples from a tree with your love. Be sure to check out Albion Orchards & Country Market which is located in Caledon, Ontario only a quick drive from downtown. Albion Orchards allows you to pick as many apples from their orchards as you can carry for the low price of only .59 cents per apple. Their market is also stocked full of Fall time sweets, including their world famous butter pecan tart! Instagram your moments at this amazing apple farm!
See What Glamping Is All About

Camping may not be for everyone, and that’s completely fine. But, glamping might just be the key to seeing the amazing outdoors, without getting dirt into your shoes. We suggest renting a cute riverfront cottage in Wasaga for the complete outdoor romantic experience. Not only will the waterfront be less crowded, but Fall is the perfect time to see the lake covered with wonderful Autumn foliage. Cuddle up with your main squeeze while staring out into the wonderful water!
Check Out The Scariest New Movies

September and October are the best months for new horror films to premiere. But, instead of streaming them through your internet, make a night out of going to the movies. Buy a ticket for a show at the Scotia bank Movie theatre located right in the downtown core, and make the most of out it. You’ll never pass up dinner and a movie again!
Become A Tourist Again

We know that you regularly avoid Yonge-Dundas square, or you might refuse to shop at the Eaton Centre, but this Fall *fall* in love with Toronto’s tourist spots all over again! Whether that’s getting drinks on King West, or grabbing some half off clothes in the consignment district of Queen West, remind yourself why Toronto is the REAL king of the North.
Diner Food On A Sunday Is Unmatched

Diner food is all about that deeped fried deliciousness, and Fall is the perfect time to indulge in warm and hearty comfort food! Check out the Thompson Diner, located near the heart of the King West clubbing district! This late night joint is perfect for those who need to soak up their spirits with a greasy burger and fries. The diner is also ideal for those who want to relax on a Sunday with food that isn’t trying to be anything other than delicious.
Ice Cream Date Is Perfect For Any Season

Fall is the perfect time to restart and reinvent yourself. Yoga isn’t just a wonderful way to stay in shape during these upcoming holiday months, but it is also ideal for those who are overwhelmed with work time stress. Take a class at YYOGA, which has locations in both the Queen Street West and Harbourfront neighborhoods. You and your partner can align your chakras together, and feel closer even just after one class.
Drive Somewhere New in The GTA

Get your adventure on this Fall and explore all that this beautiful city and surroundings areas can offer! Take a drive through Brampton, Barrie, or even Hamilton to discover unknown places and restaurants. Or get on the subway and just keep riding until you get off at a subway stop you’ve never been to! Whether you end up at Casa Loma, the shops at St. Clair, or Spadina and Dundas, Toronto is a city that will always keep surprising you!
