Whether you are a former Toronto Maple Leaf or more like Bambi on the ice, it is always a stellar winter choice to attempt to stay upright on skates. Nathan Phillips Square is the perfect place to wile away a romantic hour or two or to try and recollect your long-lost hockey skills. 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 the Rockefeller Centre.
- Free Things to Do: "Buy your own skates at a second hand shop and you can enjoy a winter filled with free exercise. Perhaps you will be left with a brand new skill. Or perhaps not."
- Romantic Things to Do: "The rink is open 24/7, so if you can do a really late night (or early morning) date, you will have the rink to yourselves (skate rentals are only open until 10pm, however). This is ideal if at least one of you has no idea what you are doing on skates."
