We are starting off with one of the best! The Royal Ontario Museum offers free entrance on the third Tuesday of every month. You get to travel through time for the grand total of ZERO dollars. Their wide range of collections from civilizations of the past makes it too lucrative of an opportunity to pass for any history buffs.

Get your picnic blankets ready and you are all set for a warm and cozy afternoon at Riverdale park. The Silhouette of the Toronto skyline with the setting sun in the background is magnificent to watch indeed. The sky will put colours in your eyes that you don’t even know the name of and that’s a very good deal considering you are spending no money on it. This is a great idea for a first date as well 🙂
