Thrifty in the City, Saving big, spending small. Fun for all!


Toronto is a great multicultural city. For numerous cultures, it is possibly the most diverse and widely encompassing city in the world. Being home to many communities and groups, Toronto is the place to be for all types of fun at the best price – Free!

There are many services and activities from which visitors and residents can benefit at no cost. Other programs do have a modest fee, but some services accept coupons or offer discounts for those who cannot afford to pay the full price.  

In terms of culture, the Canadian Opera Company offers a free concert series. Mel Lastman Square, Dundas Square and Nathan Philips Square all offer free concerts, exhibitions and programs for people of all ages.  Mel Lastman Square and Nathan Philips Square also have great skating rinks for those who like to glide through the day. The National Film Board and Yonge and Dundas Square show free movies throughout the year.

Harbourfront Centre, at Queens Quay, has many cultural activities free of charge.  While you are down at the lakefront, visit the beaches, which is a great place for the family to spend the day. From great biking and rollerblading trails to fun on the beach with sand castles to be made and fun to be had by all!

Visit the animals at Riverdale farm or go up to High Park and immerse yourself in lush greenery. While still in the city, within the 399 acres of this fantastic park, there is also a zoo. You can also view local artwork at the Toronto Free Gallery or see world renowned art at The Art Gallery of Ontario (entry fee waived at set times). To observe trendsetting art you can visit The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (pay-what-you-can all the time). To catch a glimpse of living art you can visit The Toronto Sculpture Garden. Why not travel back in time at the Royal Ontario Museum? Get lost in space at the York University observatory where you can see planets from near and far and even a star (entry fee waived at set times). You can always take a stroll to the Bata Shoe Museum or patch a quilt at the Textile Museum of Canada (offers pay-what-you-can nights).

Toronto also has many wonderful community centres that offer fun programs and classes for the whole family. Get fit at the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre or at the YMCA.  But after all of this running around you will likely become hungry. That is why it is great that Toronto hosts wonderful restaurants with a wide variety of foods for every palate and discerning taste. There are many great kosher restaurants in Toronto, which offer discounts and weekly or seasonal specials on their prices.
