Vancouver

Want to impress your girl without leaving the city? Then this is the gem you're looking for.

2. Terrace Restaurant // 1730 Mission Hill Rd

West Kelowna

With views overlooking Okanagan Lake and the vineyards at Mission Hill, this date is sure to scream romance, all night long. Ok, well, the vineyard is only open until 6PM so maybe not all night. BUT this is a great spot to have a romantic day together drinking and learning about wine, pairing those wines with all the different locally sourced foods that the Terrace Restaurant has to offer, and sitting by the lake with your bae at sunset!

3. Free Outdoor Drive-In Movies // 5300 No. 3 Road

Richmond

Starting July 20th Lansdowne Centre will be hosting a drive-in movie series all summer long and it's FREE, so now you have no reason why you can't go! This is a great location as you can go eat at the Richmond night market and then finish off your date night with a drive in movie, without having to go far.

4. Go glamping at one of these luxurious campsites

Everywhere in BC

Just when you thought camping couldn't be luxurious or romantic, you thought wrong. There are numerous places in BC that over fancy "glamping" campsites for you and your girl to stay at. Cozy up in a tent under warm sheets and don't worry about mosquitos, the only thing you'll be bitten by is the love bug.

5. Scandinave Spa // 8010 Mons Rd

Whistler

The Scandinave Spa in Whistler is one of the best places to relax and pamper yourself, and your girl. The combination of hydrotherapy, and notorious Scandinave Spa silence you can experience here makes it the ideal get away date for anyone looking to vacation at Whistler, and its only a 10 minute drive away from Whistler village!

6. Rent one of these romantic Airbnbs

Everywhere in BC

An oddly often overlooked date idea is "the weekend getaway date". Whether it's in your own city or it's in the interior, renting an Airbnb can often be the best bang for your buck and could easily be on of the most memorable dates ever!

8. Day trip to Steveston

Richmond

Being only 10km from Vancouver, it's often forgotten how close Steveston really is. Head on down and go for a walk along the pier, have a picnic and take pictures in Garry Point Park and then top it all off with some ice cream from one of the local shops.
