This one is for all the animal-lovers and hopeless romantics out there. Why not treat yourself to Valentine's Day dinner at the Calgary Zoo? They're turning up the heat this February and it's the ultimate date night if you're so over going to regular restaurants.
While there are a ton of cute and quirky date ideas for the big day, there's nothing that says classic romance like a straight-up dinner reservation.
Inside the zoo's iconic conservatory, you'll spend your Valentine's date night inside a jungle. Full of beautiful botanicals, leafy banana trees and pineapple plants — it won't feel like a date in Calgary.
Your ticket to their party, called In the Heat of the Night, will include admission and a four-course meal.
There will be tables set up throughout the conservatory and it'll feel like you're dining in the wild.
Expect dreamy and romantic music to set the tone for the night, plus a ton of games and a photo booth so you'll have better than just a selfie for a memory.
You could spend money on a dozen long-stem red roses, or, you could treat your s/o to an amazing experience that won't wilt.
This romantic evening is actually a tradition at the zoo that's been going on for the last 20 years.
Valentine's Day is sooner than you'd think and if you've ever been left scrambling at the last minute to get a reservation, then you already know the importance of planning ahead.
