Need some ideas and inspiration to kickstart the Fall season? There are plenty of affordable, activities to get involved in as well as beautiful scenery in Toronto and the GTA. Although you may be a little sad that you can no longer enjoy some poolside lounging in Ontario, the fall time definitely has its perks with gorgeous leaves and cozy vibes. 

Here are 10 affordable & fun fall activities to do in Toronto & the GTA.

Albion Hills Conservation Area

Located in Caledon, take a hike, a run, or even a bike ride around the beautiful area and breathe in the fresh air. Have a picnic surrounded by the colour changing leaves. Obsessed with the area? Grab your tent and take a camping trip for a couple of nights.

Leslieville Farmers’ Market
