1. Garibaldi Provincial Park // Whistler

Time: 1 hr 17 mins

Garibaldi's pristine turqoise alpine lake will be one of the most breathtaking masterpeices of nature you and your bae will ever feast your eyes on. Hike up to Taylor Meadows for a stunning view of Black Tusk mountain, take a dip in the lake on a hot summer's day, and bring along a few cold ones while you take in the views.

When you get the 'wanna run?' morning text from a friend and it just happens to be this gorgeous out... PC: @jennyontherock7 #run #running #blueskies #hasspringsprung #campbellvalleypark #littleriver #townshipoflangley #langleyfresh #pbcm #seenonmyrun

2. Campbell Valley Park // Langley

Time: 1 hr

Sometimes the hustle and bustle of the city can be a bit much. Retreat to this quite and serene park for a nice, long romantic stroll through nature. You can even go horseback riding along the trails in this park! And if horses aren't your thing, this park is also very puppy friendly.

nature is neat

3. Othello Tunnels // Abbotsford

Time: 1 hr 15 mins

Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park, also popularly known as the Othello Tunnels, is a truly unique experience. Walk through abandoned tunnels and bridges along incredible rocky cliffs and canyons. And if you're broke, this day trip is perfect, because it's totally free.

Pro-tip: Tunnels get dark, so bring a flashlight and remember to hold tight onto bae!

6. Cultus Lake // Chilliwack

Time: 1 hr 30 mins

Cultus Lake and Cultus Lake Waterpark will probably be the most fun you two will ever have as a couple. The gorgeous lake surrounded by lush green hills and swimming friendly waters will give you that feel good cabin community experience, and the waterpark right next door will give both of you the adrenaline pumping type fun you've needed to revive yourself with away from your mundane Monday to Friday.

7. Galiano Island // Gulf Islands

Time: 2 hrs 30 mins

Need a place to just get away from it all? Galiano Island is the place. The perfect spot for morning hikes, afternoon dips in the ocean, and evenings spent gazing at the bright stars. Spend your entire day here just relaxing with your S/O. What could be better?

I love you 🌞

9. Krause Berry Farms & Estate Winery // Langley

Time: 1 hr

Wine and berry pies for days - at Krause Berry Farms you can pick berries all day long and enjoy their delicious berry pies, and take it from me, you won't leave without absolutely having to take one to go. Then after a full day of berries, stay for the evening and even do a wine tasting.
