March break activities in Toronto for 2021

These are some of the activities currently available over the 2021 March break.

Outdoor activities

Get some fresh air with an exploration of the outdoors. Abiding by social distancing rules, consider taking up a bike or Segway tour of downtown, and if the day calls for more adventure, even a bit of off-roading.

Learn a new skill

Get crafty with a new skill or two over the holidays. If you want to stay home to play it safe, an online course in music or self-development can go a long way.

Sign up for a virtual class

Catering to older students, virtual classes can increase a student’s knowledge during the upcoming spring break with a lesson in nutrition or well-being.

Have fun in the park

Sometimes the plan that holds the most simplicity offers the most fun. With so many variations, take your pick between a tour of Prince Edward County or Algonquin Provincial Park.
