It's almost Thursday, which is basically Friday, which means it's prime time to plan out your dates for the weekend. Don't be that boring AF chick that takes their date for dinner and drinks. It's so overdone! Pitt Meadows is an awesome place to explore and vibe out your dating prospects. If you try out this guide, you will defs know whether or not he can ride with you (literally, check the list).
Everyone is at fault for getting stuck in that routine where you go to the same restaurant every Friday and call it date night. Whether it's a bumble date or your BF of five years, it's still so basic. If you're from Pitt Meadows then maybe this will be a cute AF guide to switching up your current dating routine, OR if you've never traveled over the Pitt River bridge, then this is a whole new city for you to explore!

Why you should go: First of all, it's gorgeous. Secondly, it's the perfect opportunity to disconnect from your phone.

You can even camp at falls, if you're feeling extra adventurous.
Stomping Grounds Cafe Bistro
Where: 10931 Barnston View Rd
Price: $2 Coffee, $2 Alfajorres
Why you should go: THE. BEST. COFFEE. EVER. This family-run cafe is the perfect place for a first date or a fiftieth date. Grab one of their coveted coffees and some of their authentic Peruvian baked goods and walk down by the river's edge. Whether you order their Alfajorres or one of their paninis, you will not be disappointed. Oh, and the chef won a Chopped Canada title, so the food has to be good, right?
Tomes and Tales Books, Gifts & Tea
Where: 19141 Ford Rd

Picnic & Plane Watching
Where: 18799 Airport Way
Why you should go: The Pitt Meadows Regional Airport and Sky Helicopters are both located on Airport Way. This is the perfect area to park and watch the planes fly overhead. You could even have a little picnic like the cuties above! This date idea is straight out of a romantic movie.
Swan-E-Set Bay Resort & Golf Course
Where: 16651 Rannie Rd

Their pasta night invites nonmembers for unlimited pasta that is literally cooked right in front of you. It's also where they shot Happy Gilmore. Whip that little tidbit out on your date and he'll be putty in your hands.
Where: 18385 Old Dewdney Trunk Rd
