One thing Iโ€™ve noticed during my travels to cities such as Los Angeles, Miami and many parts of Europe, is that Toronto (and the rest of Canada, most likely) is totally lacking when it comes to the outdoor mall shopping experience. Iโ€™m sure this has something to do with the fact that our climate is significantly colder and more severe for a good half of the year, but, it makes me happy to know that us Torontonians at least have CF Shops at Don Mills to enjoy, which is the closest thing Iโ€™ve seen to an outdoor mall in this city, and country for that matter.

Not only is CF Shops at Don Mills an outdoor shopping destination that reminds me of being in some of my favourite cities abroad, but I canโ€™t help but love just how clean and fancy it all is, even though many of their retailers are totally accessible. For example, how many malls can you think of that A) Have a town square, B) Take care of it, and C) Would host outdoor exercise classes there?

I recently had the opportunity to take part in one of their outdoor group cycle classes to experience it first hand, and, I can honestly say that this is one workout you should definitely take advantage of while you can. I mean, how often do you get to take part in a group cycle or yoga class outdoors that can immediately be followed by some retail therapy to reward yourself for doing your body some good?
