It's more important than ever to lay on the romance extra thick in the Spring with your S/O. With Winter almost behind us, they're going to start to shy away from cosy nights in and crave a little more adventure in their life. Be the person in their life who brings them love, adventure and fun things to do!
You don't need a Hawaiian vacation or a gold-dipped rose to show them that you care about them. All you really need to do is show them you care by going on an adventure together whether it's big or small. Although, if my s/o reads this I wouldn't say no to a Hawaiian vacation.
From weekend getaway ideas and romantic restaurants to hidden gems and natural wonders—you just might want to tick off everything on this list with your S/O this Spring!
Here are 12 romantic date ideas for you and your significant other this Spring because buying them a gold-covered rose is way, way too extra.
Free Spirit Spheres
If you haven't taken your s/o to the most Instagram-worthy treehouse in the province yet then I don't know how much you value your relationship. This is the #1 place on the travel wish list of every British Columbian I know that loves glamping and being surrounded by the forest.
Chilliwack Tulip Festival
As soon as the tulips are in bloom, you'll definitely want to take them to see this colourful spectacle in person. You can make a fun day of it out on the farm and bring armfuls of fresh and bright flowers home with you. What better Spring date is there?
Il Covo Trattoria
This hidden gem in Victoria is an old-school authentic Italian restaurant that will be perfect for an intimate date night. If your s/o can share the tiramisu with you without whining or ordering their own, then they're probably a keeper!
Camelot Haven Alpacas
All animal lovers in BC should at some point make the pilgrimage out to Camelot Haven Alpacas! You can meet alpacas here in the Spring and even go on a walk with them. This is one of the cutest date ideas this Spring and will totally make a lasting impression on your s/o.
Campbell Hills Guest Ranch
If you're looking to totally spoil your animal-loving s/o then you two should stay at a guest ranch together. You get the rustic experience of staying on an actual ranch and you get to ride and make friends with horses all day! This spot in Kamloops offers great packages for wannabe cowboys.
VanDusen Plant Sale
It's Spring so it's time to bring a little more green into your life! Whether you have just a bedside table or an entire patio to fill with plans, you'll have a ton of fun picking out new plants together at this epic annual plant sale. Even if you don't have a green thumb, you can ask on-site experts how to take care of your new plants.
Tinhorn Creek Vineyard
Curious to find wineries to discover together this Spring? If you aren't an expert on the Okanagan wine offerings, then Tinhorn Creek is a good place to start. They have a great tasting room, a restaurant, tours and tons of places to take photos around their property.
Christopher Norman Chocolates
Christopher Norman chocolates were famous in New York City, but luckily for us, their operation moved Halfmoon Bay! Take your s/o to check out his chocolate shop this Spring to discover world-class chocolate in your own province. If your s/o is a chocoholic, then this would be a good way to impress them.
The Twilight Drive-In
Mix up your usual movie night this Spring and head out to the only drive-in around. Hit up the concession stand and snuggle with your s/o as you watch a movie from your car.
Liard River Hot Springs
These are the must-see hot springs in the Province! They're very far north so it will take you quite the long drive to get there but if your s/o loves going on road trips then this would be a really cool place to check out this Spring. Who wouldn't want to relax in a natural oasis like this?
SKY Helicopter Tour Of The BC Backcountry
Go big this Spring and take your s/o on an unforgettable helicopter ride of the BC backcountry. You'll spot once-in-a-lifetime views of glaciers, forests, fjords and waterfalls on this epic adventure.
The Giant Cedars Boardwalk Trail
This boardwalk path takes you past giant cedars. It's truly amazing to be surrounded by these giants! The trail is only about half a kilometre long, so it's perfect for couples who aren't that outdoorsy to try something new and it's a refreshing way to stretch your legs after a drive.
