It’s hard to imagine such a thing exists,
The best dates I've been on in the city have strayed far from simply grabbing a beer.
Whether you're on a health kick

What better way to get comfortable with someone than by hanging out in your bathrobes all day?

Trampolines are always fun, no matter how old you are.

Focus those jittery first-date nerves on something else at this outdoor adventure park.

There’s a reason it’s been coined Winnipeg’s urban playground.
The Forks Market // Forks Market Rd[embed]https://www.instagram.com/p/BH2ZokEgCMN/?taken-by=craspybakon[/embed]
With so many food kiosks (and new ones opening like Nuburger, Fusion Grill, and Simons) you won't have to worry about disagreeing on a restaurant choice. Plus, the dining hall was recently renovated and looks very Hogwarts-esque. After dinner, there’s always an event or concert happening somewhere on site (and everyone knows The Forks is the best spot in the city to catch Pokemon).

Even if you just go for the day, getting out of the city and into the relaxing atmosphere of folk fest feels wonderful.

Nowhere else will you find goats, chickens, a Sunday brunch, a weekly farmer’s market, and the cutest little gift shop all in one place.

The Real Escape // 3137 Portage Ave[embed]https://www.instagram.com/p/BMF1gTWF8hH/?taken-at=273908188[/embed]
It’s the highest rated escape room in the city with more than five different rooms to choose from.

Not every city has a nature oasis in the middle of it.

Winnipeg has a huge art scene
Celebrations Dinner Theatre // 1824 Pembina Hwy
If your date loves the theatre, make sure to check out Celebrations Dinner Theatre. With musical performances spoofing TV and movies like Modern Family, School of Rock, and Friends, what could go wrong? Oh yeah—they might call one of you up on stage to embarrass you, which they do regularly.
