Canadian actress and content creator
Canadian actress and content creator Torri Webster shares her experiences growing up in Southern Ontario and highlights her must-dos this spring and summer.
Where did you grow up and what was the best part about growing up in Ontario?
My name is Torri Webster, and I grew up in Toronto, Ontario. In my younger years, I grew up in the suburbs of Toronto, specifically North York. I stayed in Toronto for my university studies at Toronto Metropolitan University, and that’s when I truly fell in love with the downtown core while living right in the contagious action of the city. The best part about growing up in Ontario was the ability to experience all four seasons to the nth degree, from weekends at Blue Mountain skiing in the winter to summers spent at camp in Muskoka. Ontario has always welcomed each new season with a perfect activity pairing to keep me entertained year after year.
What are your favourite things to do in the province?
I have so many special memories in Ontario, but some of my favourite things to do include spending a Sunday in the beautiful green space at Edwards Gardens in Toronto. Heading on a road trip to Prince Edward County with friends, taking a wine tour, and visiting Ste. Anne’s Spa along the way! Plus, there’s also nothing like grabbing fresh bagels and fruit at St. Lawrence Market in Toronto or, finally, visiting an epic Mirvish theatre show on a Friday night.
What do you love most about living in Ontario?
Ontario will always feel like home, no matter how much I travel or spend time away. What I love most is Ontario’s vast landscape, its outstanding and unique access to culinary experiences, lakeside memories, and of course, our epic sports teams – spending an evening cheering for the Toronto Maple Leafs will always be the perfect night out.
Top recommendations for someone visiting Ontario this summer?
If you’re visiting Ontario, look no further than Toronto’s best spots, as recommended by a local! Kick off your vacation with wellness and start with the best Toronto facial at Sous La Face in Yorkville. Or, if you’re looking for a group activity, hit up Othership for a soul-rejuvenating social sauna session and cold plunge. From there, hop on the ferry and head to the Toronto Islands for an afternoon bike ride. Finally, I recommend Mamakas for dinner on Queen West and Ossington for a trendy night out with the best Greek food in town!
What inspired you to start creating content?
I was inspired to create content to find a community of like-minded people who share a love for fashion, beauty, and travel. I love connecting with people and sharing tips and tricks about my life and learnings. I also have a deep passion for photography, editing, and producing. These are tasks and skills that I get to flex daily as a content creator! When I started creating content, I had no idea how much I would love building an online community, and I am constantly awe-struck at where my online storytelling has led my career today.
