Perk Up the Season with Savings!
Published: October 26, 2023
The temps are getting cooler, but these perks are piping hot!
Fall is here with blustery breezes, cozy sweaters, and the scent of pumpkin spice wherever you go. It’s the perfect season to enjoy an outdoor event in the crisp air or an inside attraction where it’s warm. While the trees start dropping leaves, you can take advantage of dropping prices on tickets to events and attractions in Toronto this season.
Whether you’re a local looking for weekend outings, you’re planning a visit to Toronto from out of town, or you’re hosting family and friends who want to see the sights — fall is a beautiful and fun-filled time to explore Toronto. But it’s always better when you can save some money!

Explore the Human Condition at Divina Dalí
More than 600 years after Dante completed the Divine Comedy, Salvador Dalí was commissioned to illustrate Dante’s poetic masterpiece. The commission was cancelled due to public outcry, but Dalí continued the project on his own, eventually creating a watercolour painting for each of the 100 cantos of the poem.
At the Divina Dalí Exhibit, you will embark on a multi-sensory journey, as you experience Dalí’s visual interpretation of the Divine Comedy, and the combined masterworks of these two creative geniuses!
The Divina Dalí Exhibit is presented at Brookfield Place at 181 Bay St in Toronto — just a 10-minute walk from UP Express Union Station.
