If you’re looking for a romantic getaway or a place to have a girls night in the city, Shop.Ca’s Christmas Market located at the Distillery District is a place I highly recommend. The historic precinct is transformed into a beautiful market filled with a huge Christmas tree and gorgeous decorations, rides for the kids, joyful vendors and simply fun all around.
If you’re trying to avoid the crowd, try to not go during the weekends. But then again, that’s the fun of a market right? Especially if it’s Christmas themed! Definitely dress warm! But if you need a little pick me up, they sell hot chocolate and hot apple cider for those of you with a sweet tooth. There’s even beer available if you’re feeling a little spontaneous. If you have an empty stomach there is street food available if you want to avoid the long wait lists for the restaurants.
Personally, my favourite part of the Christmas Market by far were the beautiful lights that lit up the pathways. It was a picture perfect moment, to say the least. There is an abundance of activities to do, from sitting by the fire-pits to keeping warm while looking at the unique art pieces and to even just taking a bunch of selfies with your loved ones, the Christmas Market is definitely a place you want to visit to get yourself in the Christmas spirit!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
