What I love about Toronto are the abundance of summer events that are packed into the precious warm months of June, July and August. Summers in Toronto are pretty much THE BEST. There’s some sort of crazy festival happening every weekend and so many great Toronto restaurants to check out.

I’m trying to make the most of what’s left of July and plan on doing as much as possible to get outside and soak up the sun in August. We’re thinking one more camping trip in August and something to celebrate our anniversary as well.
