When it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and you are Canadian, you strap on a pair of ice skates and hope for the best. The top place to do this during the holiday season is undeniably Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto. Located right in front of City Hall and around the corner from the Eaton's Centre and popular restaurants, it is a great activity to sandwich between other downtown pursuits. Bring your own skates for free exercise or rent skates for $10 or less. During the holidays, the rink sparkles with lights and displays a large holiday tree for Toronto's version of New York's Rockefeller Centre. The Holiday Fair's dates for 2019 are December 7-23. Expect an elegant Christmas market, a Holly Jolly Midway and Polar Point Bar to shiver away in with your nearest and dearest.
- Holiday Attractions: "This is a Christmas hot spot, so of course, Santa has been invited. He is there on weekends between 12pm and 8pm for photos."
- Best for Holiday Attractions Because: An artisan village, an ice rink and fire pits. Can you get more festive than that?
