It’s once again that time of the year when the younger members of the family are out of school for a whole week. Here are some top attractions in the city that are a great way to get some relaxing family time in because everyone deserves a spring break.
Sugar Shack TO
Whatever you decide to do for March Break, snack and meal breaks are a necessary parts of the adventure. For sweet-toothed readers, you're in luck. Sugar Shack TO is making its way back to Sugar Beach this year. On March 11 and 12, this event will feature all sorts of maple-infused goodies as well as family-friendly entertainment and activities.
Chill Ice House
How about you chill in a whole new way, literally. Everything inside the Chill Ice House is made of ice—from the cups to the curtains. The temperature is set at -5 degrees Celsius, and courtesy parkas and gloves are provided at the door. The lounge features brilliant ice sculptures and also a heated speakeasy in the back, complete with hot drinks for those who can't take the cold.
Toronto’s Floatation Centers
Those inclined to do something a bit more physical are in for a real treat, or in other words a float. Seriously though, if you have not yet been to Toronto’s Floatation centers March Break is the time to try something new. Floatation therapy, also known as floating, involves lying in a salt-water solution in a spacious tank. It is one of the most effective means of stress relief and relaxation available.
March Break at the AGO
This year AGO offers a wide variety of hands on activities and interactive instillations March 10th to the 18th. Inspired by the Yayoi Kusama exhibition, the floor of the art gallery is transformed into a futuristic city that you can help build with colourful art supplies and materials.
Those who are into graphic design (and especially the graphic novel), obviously know what comic behemoth is returning to Toronto: Comic Con 2018! As always, located in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (March 16-18), the show will be boasting with unique exhibitors, presentations, and workshops. This year’s guest lineup includes Matilda’s Mara Wilson, The Walking Dead’s Seth Gilliam, and many others.
Whichever way you decide to spend your March break, be sure to enjoy. It only comes once a year, and the activities / events that come along with it will make kids never want to grow up while the adults will feel like kids again.
