The start of March Break means staring down a week of free time to fill. Here, we share our guide to getting the most of that special week—ideas of the culinary, cinematic, and adventure-seeking varieties that’ll keep everyone in your family entertained.
When the energy is totally brimming in your house, a day at the The Rec Room is the ultimate remedy. Where else can you bowl, axe-throw, play pool or partake in the plenty of video games all in one spot? When you get hungry (all that activity will do that!), grab a seat at Canadiana-inspired restaurant Three10 for a bevy of delicious eats, including a kid’s menu with all the classics.
A buttery bag of popcorn, reclined seats, the latest picture on the big screen—going to the movies is unrivalled in our books. Book a ticket at Cineplex Cinemas Mississauga to check out the newest instalment in the Spider-Man franchise, Spider-Man: No Way Home; Disney’s fun-for-everyone, instant classic, Encanto; or Marry Me, a super-sweet flick starring rom-com queen Jennifer Lopez.
Eat It Up
Prefer to spend the break on a quest for culinary greatness? Head to The Food District, Square One’s sprawling food hall. On the savoury side, we love La Carnita, a popular taco joint dishing out forever favourites, like tuna ceviche tostadas and Mexican street corn. If you’re craving something sweet, the options are endless: Uncle Tetsu’s fluffy Japanese cheesecakes, gourmet frozen treats by Sweet Jesus and chocolate bar-stuffed baked goods from Big Fat Cookies.
With an open schedule on your hands, now is the perfect time to get ahead of the season and start your spring shopping. Scoop up warmer weather essentials—lightweight shell jackets, wear-all-day joggers and active tees among them—at Sport Chek, then head to Nike for recess-ready sneakers and logoed hoodies. With over 100 clothing and accessory stores to peruse, you can tick off everything on your list in one go.
At Square One, you can pack your five days with must-watch movies, unrivalled shopping and loads of family fun.
