Out Of The Box Valentine’s Day Activities
Whether you’re looking for a romantic date night out with your significant other this Valentine’s Day, or if you are avoiding the holiday entirely and plan on staying cozy on the couch, we’ve got you covered!
We’ve put together our favorite romantic and unique things to do in the Lower Mainland with your main squeeze, best friend, or family.
SPEND THE DAY UNDERWATER
If you and your significant other both love animals, then a trip to the Vancouver Aquarium is the perfect activity for both of you! Located within Stanley Park, you can stroll hand in hand like 2 sea otters in love!
Explore the galleries with a drink in hand, and enjoy special programming. Highlights include: A shark reproduction show, animal sex talk with Dr. Megan, sea otter feed, adult-themed puppet show and a penguin walk.
TRY A NEW RESTAURANT
What better time than Valentine's Day should you and your significant other (or family!) go outside your comfort zone and tryout new food?
Instead of venturing downtown, why not try some of these delicious options closer to home? We suggest My Shanti or Hawthorne. Better yet, why not visit Tap Restaurant or Old Surrey - they've recently been voted as 2 of Canada's Most Romantic Restaurants!
FALL IN LOVE UNDER THE STARS
Spend an enchanted evening at the H.R. MacMillian Space Centre as they transform the Planetarium Star Theatre into a starry soirée for Valentine’s Day. Enjoy drinks, appetizers, activities, and a live musical performance by Jody Glenham. Sit in on a playful debate as astronomers discuss whether Venus or Mars is the best planets for colonization...and love!
*BONUS: SKIP THE FLOWERS
Flowers are so cliche! The quickest way to the heart is through the stomach. Luckily Juke Fried Chicken has your back with their bouquet of crispy, gluten-free fried chicken! 🍗
