It’s almost Good Friday and at Weekendtrips, we have a ton of good ideas to keep you busy for the long weekend.

Here are our top picks:

Easter Sweets Tour
March 31, 2013
One of the things most synonymous with Easter (in addition to the bunny of course) is chocolate and the Easter Sweets Tour is the perfect way to indulge your sweet tooth. Presented by Tasty Tours, there are tour options on Easter Sunday where your walk start at Spadina’s Ding Dong Bakery and leads you through a deliciously decadent exploration of six sweet shops in the area. While your mouth is full with sample, you are presented with a short history of sweets and Easter treats. Not sure how much you will remember as you indulge yourself though!
