If you grew up in Scarborough you probably spent a lot of time looking for parking at Scarborough Town Centre and listening to music on the TTC on the long commute into the city. But you probably also spent your weekends down at the Bluffs, hit up Ribs Fest every year, and enjoyed getting some sun on the beach.
There’s more to this neighborhood than meets the eye—check it out!
#1 – Learn how to SUP with Paddleboard Addict
7 Brimley Road South
Located in the Scarborough Bluffs marina, Paddleboard Addict is Ontario’s only floating stand-up paddleboarding school. This boathouse turned paddleboarding school offers intro SUP lessons set against the breathtaking background of the Scarborough Bluffs—they also offer paddleboarding tours.
#2 – Enjoy the blast from the past at Laser Quest
1980 Eglinton Avenue East
Sure Laser Quest on Eglinton Avenue might have been the go-to for birthday parties when you were a kid, but it’s well worth revisiting. This is a great spot for a new take on date night or just a super fun thing to do with your friends. If you’d like to avoid the kids, check out Iron Man offered after 10pm.
#3 – Shoot your friends with arrows at Archery District
770 Birchmount Road, Unit 22
Archery tag is a great way to get out with your friends while being active, engaging in my safe combat warfare, and enjoying that sweet adrenaline rush. At Archery District you can play archery tag for $25 on the weekends, and you’ll get 15 minutes of prep time before you start the game.
#4 – Add some color to your weekend with Gladiator’s Paintball
3475 Danforth Avenue
If you have a birthday or a bachelor party in the near future, check out Gladiator’s Paintball for an ultimate paintball experience. This Scarborough staple has two indoor arenas that are open year round. Skip the party packages and stop by with a few pals at $25 each (including 100 paintballs.)
