Most couples are guilty of being potatoes. I mean, what's better than cuddling with your bae on the couch, spending quality time with each other, and binge watching Stranger Things together? Tbh, nothing much.

But once in a while, every potato needs to get out. And so do you. But there are some quintessential potato activities that you can do with your boy/girlfriend that don't require too much effort.

Lussier Hot Springs


Potatoes love to relax and do nothing. At the Lussier Hot Springs at Whiteswan Lake Provincial Park in Kootenay, you can do exactly just that, but embrace the summer all the while. Instead of being a potato on the couch, switch it up an potato out in nature.

Richmond Night Market


A big part of being a potato is eating...and a lot of it. And the perfect place to do that is at the biggest Asian food market in Canada, the Richmond Night Market. With over 200 vendors, you'll find your fave junk foods and desserts. Hello, food baby.

Twilight Drive-In Movie Theatre


We know probably 80% of your relationship is based Netflix and chill anyway, so why not take your relationship to the next level by going to a drive-in theatre. Twilight Drive-In always features some of the newest movies. Go on Tuesday and admission is only $9.50. Go on Thursday, fill up your car (up to 5 people) and your total admission will only be $28. So cheap!

VIA Rail Canada

Vancouver, Kamloops, Prince Rupert, Prince George

Potatoes typically prefer not to drive, so instead let someone else do the driving for you. Well in this case, conduct a train. If you've never taken the Canadian Rail, perhaps now is the time to do it, with stops throughout BC and even across Canada to Jasper and Toronto, this magical rail trip will show you Canada like you've never seen before.

EXP Bar + Restaurant


One of the requirements of being a potato is never leaving the couch. A big part of not leaving the couch is because you're in the middle of an epic video game. So if you're ever going to leave the house, try out EXP Bar that offers video games and awesome drinks.

Porteau Cove


Stargazing with your potato bae is an important potato activity and Porteau Cove on the Sea-to-Sky Highway is the perfect place to do it. Along with the gorgeous scenic drive to the provincial park, the sky is so clear at night that the stars will have you falling in love with your boo all over again.

Kitsilano Pool


The word "swimming" in "swimming pool" is really just a suggestion. Potato it out at the gorgeous Kits Pool and work on your tan while you're at it. I mean, who doesn't love a nice golden potato?

Waterfront Airbnb

Various locations in BC

Why potato at home when you can potato at a secluded waterfront Airbnb with bae? Rent out a gorgeous Airbnb for a weekend getaway before the end of summer for cheap, or even call up your go-to double date couple so they can chip in and you all can rent it out for SUPER cheap.
