The BenSim City Guide: Toronto
To celebrate Covid restrictions slowly easing, we wanted to share some of our favourite spots around Toronto (other cities coming soon!) to support local businesses.
With the Family
After 15 months of staying safe in our homes, we all need some fresh air. Hit up Glen Stewart Ravine in the East End for a beautiful scenic walk, this oasis is the ultimate place to spend some quality time with your family. Then, swing by Ed’s Real Scoop – Beaches (11-minute walk from Glen Stewart Ravine) for some refreshing sweet treats while watching the sun set by the beach!
Don’t forget to soothe your skin with some Egyptian Magic after a day in the sun!
With the Girlfriends
Let’s kick it off with a wellness class at 889 Community (classes are currently online only), followed by some retail therapy at the 889 Shop. This is Toronto’s destination to pick-up some wakse product!
Finish off the evening with drinks and small bites at the Rooftop at The Broadview Hotel while enjoying the stunning cityscape of the Toronto skyline.
Get ready for date night with Sara Happ’s simple 3 steps for the perfect pout.
A butcher by day and wine bar by night, Cote de Boeuf is the perfect spot on Ossington to cozy up with your beau or belle!
Craving some fresh Italian food with seasonal ingredients? Head on over to Osteria Rialto - located inside the magical Paradise complex, a historical Art Deco building featuring a retro theatre and a cocktail bar. P.S. They have a beautiful patio and a killer wine list!
Check out Bloom Beauty’s newly renovated location (reopening soon) while picking up some non gender specific goodies, or swing by Capelli’s Salon at Bayview Village (temporarily closed until Covid restrictions are lifted) for a much needed haircut and some Sara Happ products.
