Throughout the summer and early fall, Toronto tends to enjoy bright blue skies and warm weather – often, you will be hard-pressed to find a cloud in the sky. Like every other city on earth, eventually, it will rain, and that won’t change just because you made plans spend the day outside.

Often a rainfall in Toronto is heavy but brief, so you can try to wait it out and carry on with your outdoor activities. Occasionally, though, the rain just won’t let up, so you need to find alternatives that don’t involve getting soaked.

Finding New Indoor Activities

No matter where you live, the COVID-19 pandemic has probably contributed to making you spend far too many days stuck indoors at home. While you might feel like an expert in finding ways to fill the time, you’re also likely to be sick to death of all of them. Chances are, we could all use a few new suggestions on what to do when it is pleasant to be outdoors.

Enter Online Contests

One way to fill the time on a rainy day while also giving yourself a chance to win prizes and cash is to enter online contests. You can enter contests in Toronto by finding a website that collects all of the best online contests in one place and provides information on contests that apply specifically to your local area.

Using this method, you can quickly gain access to more contests than you might find otherwise. If you’re currently vacationing in Toronto, you can turn a rainy day into a way to get the most out of the rest of your trip by earning extra perks or more cash to spend.

Now that restrictions for public gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic have become less severe, you can spend the day indoors while also getting out of your house. One of the best parts about Toronto is that it boasts many world-class museums and art galleries. A few of the most popular include

  • Royal Ontario Museum
  • Ontario Art Gallery
  • The Gardiner Museum
  • The Museum of Contemporary Art
  • Aga Khan Museum

While technically not museums or galleries, two other excellent ways to spend the day indoors in Toronto are Ripley’s Aquarium and the Ontario Science Centre – especially if you have kids.

Get Active While Inside

In recent years, there has been a growth of new businesses that offer various types of more physical leisure activities in indoor environments. In Toronto, some of these options include

  • Table Tennis Bars
  • Rock Climbing Gyms
  • Bowling Alleys
  • Indoor Tennis Clubs
  • Swimming Pools
  • Beach Volleyball
  • Trampoline Parks
  • Bubble Soccer

Other Options

Suppose none of these indoor activities strike your fancy. In that case, you may still be interested in taking a shopping trip to one of Toronto’s many large malls, seeing a movie, trying out an escape room, singing karaoke, enjoying a board game café, or one of many more options.

It should be clear by now that spending the day indoors in Toronto doesn’t have to be a bore at all since there are plenty of businesses open now to keep you entertained. On the other hand, if you don’t feel like going out, the best option is to stay home and win prizes by entering online contests.
