The 5 Best Things to do in Toronto This May 24 Weekend
Not everyone is lucky enough to have a buddy who invites their friends to the cottage every May two-four long weekend. In the grand scheme of things, it’s not too bad though because Toronto is a kick-ass place to be in, especially during the Spring and Summer. There’s some pretty cool stuff to do this May 24 weekend in Toronto.
This is why you don’t need to worry about FOMO like you did when you were 19 because everywhere you turn there is something that can scratch that itch for entertainment.
That’s why we put a list together for the people that won’t be getting away to the cottage but are still looking for something fun to do in Toronto with their pals. Here are 5 things that you can do in the city on your May 24 long weekend.
1. Face off with your buds in a sweet game of Archery Tag
Archery tag is like stepping in to the war of Castle Black from Game of Thrones, minus the severe injury that would come along with the real thing. What could be more fun than shooting foam tip bow-n-arrows at high speeds towards at your buddies and only for one team to come up as the winner. There are a ton of archery places to choose from in Toronto, but if we had to recommend a few we would say Archers Arena and Archer District are a good place to start.
2. Axe Throwing
Axe throwing has become super popular around the city in the last few years. It’s like dart throwing on steroids! What’s great is that there are multiple games to play when you go to these Axe Throwing places so you won’t get bored after a few tries. Places like BATL and Bad Axe Throwing each take large groups and allow you and your friends to play different games to keep you entertained from start to finish.
3. Go On A Brewery Tour
Toronto has some of the best beer! We know this for a fact, of course.. There are different tours available across the city that all aim to fulfill your thirsty taste buds. Our pals like Great Lakes Brewery, Mill Street Brew Pub and Steamwhistle Brewery all have really good tours and are even opened on the long weekend. Be sure to arrive early though, most are on a first come first serve basis.
4. Catch The Boys in Red at BMO Field
On May 21 Toronto FC faces Columbus Crew SC at BMO Field and it’s the perfect place for you and the buds to enjoy some excitement by cheers on the boys in Red. Make sure you let our Italian brother Sebastian Giovinco know that we sent you!
5. Go to Spring Sessions of Toronto’s Festival of Beer 2016!
On May 21 and 22 we’re hosting the 3rd annual Spring Sessions Festival, or as we like to call it – the Sesh’. Come celebrate the long weekend ‘cottage style’ in the city at the foot of Lower Sherbourne Street. We will be bringing together 20 breweries and food vendors. Tickets are $30 and they are going fast!
