Make every date like it's the first.
15 Unique Places To Take A Date In Vancouver If You Don't Drink

Let's face it, it can be hard to go on a date that doesn't involve drinking some sort of alcoholic beverage these days. Alcohol is mother nature's ice breaker. But not for you! You don’t need alcohol to take your guy/gal on the perfect date, especially not because you read this list before planning it!

Hopefully you used all that money you saved not drinking to buy a car because you're going to need it for most of these dates!

The Xcape Room // 7800 Alderbridge Way, Richmond

The rooms are designed for 4-6 so if the two of you can escape you are pros.

Grandview Lanes // 2195 Commercial Dr

If she doesn’t like bowling, you shouldn't be dating her.

Twilight Drive-In Theatre //260th Street and Fraser Highway, Aldergrove

Metro Vancouver's only drive in theatre. Yes, it's in Ladner, but if you have a car it's worth it. They are open Friday-Sunday rain or shine and I swear this will make you feel nostalgic AF.
