Vancouver Date Ideas
While things may be a little different this year, we’re sharing our top five date ideas for off-the-beaten-path romance for those wanting to love like a local Vancouverite.
Vancouverites are a famously outdoorsy bunch — even in the winter. Naturally, the best date ideas are those in nature. Stroll on the beach, hop in a kayak or head up the local mountains for a day of snowshoeing.
Peak of Love
Winter magic awaits on Grouse Mountain. Lace up your skates for a winning date idea and go for a spin on the mountain’s 8,000 square foot ice skating pond — the only one of its kind on the West Coast.
Must Love Dogs
Just over the Lion’s Gate Bridge is West Vancouver’s Ambleside Park. At the entrance, you’ll find the 3.5-acre dog park with beach access, a beautiful spot for (dog) lovers. This hidden gem features a pedestrian-only Seawalk that overlooks Stanley Park and Vancouver’s city skyline.

Date Ideas For The Creative Couple
Try something new and bring out your inner Bob Ross. A paint night is the perfect date idea to spark conversation and create a keepsake that will make for a lasting memory. With just a few simple tools and these accessible virtual classes, you can kiss the same old movie night goodbye. And PS: the first person to use the line “paint me like on of your French girls” has to do the clean-up.
Bonus Local Tip: Mix it up! Order a cocktail kit for delivery to kick off the evening.
Sky’s The Limit
If you’re looking to make a grand gesture – this is IT. Your adventure includes a half hour remote backcountry landing for a deluxe picnic, packed especially for you by Fairmont Waterfront’s culinary team. Enjoy your lunch from one of SKY’s magical backcountry remote landings – each location has its own magic and showcases an aspect of British Columbia’s beautiful back country. Learn More>
