Perfect Vancouver Date Ideas

Two words: breakfast pizza

When in doubt, brunch. Head over to Scratch Kitchen in Deep Cove for a boozy brunch featuring breakfast pizza. Try their Wake n Bacon, which combines the classic breakfast staple of bacon & eggs with pizza. Need we say more?

Plus, Deep Cove is such a serene area to go for a walk to burn off a few of the calories consumed at brunch.

If you’re the type of couple who likes to get outdoors and explore—this is for you. Go on a leisurely trail that allows you to still have a conversation while appreciating the great outdoors.

There’s lots of whimsical little trails around Metro Vancouver and beyond, that will make you feel like you’re in a fairytale. Our favourites? Teapot Hill in Chilliwack is a charming trail with teapots and tea cups scattered throughout. And Trinket Trail on the Sunshine Coast is like playing a giant game of geocache.

Hang out with alpacas

What could be better? Spend some quality time with each other AND alpacas. Visit Kensington Prairie Farm, an adorable alpaca farm in Langley.

It’s home to a large herd of the adorable animals—giving you the opportunity to get lots of alpaca cuddles and pictures.

Star gazing at Porteau Cove

Nothing beats a mini road trip! If you’re looking to go star gazing, Porteau Cove is it. Pack a blanket and some chairs, a thermos of hot cocoa and hit the road.

Porteau Cove is located in between Vancouver and Squamish. It’s an absolutely stunning spot to soak up the stars and all the beauty nature has to offer.

Dining in the dark

A unique dining experience that will enhance all your other senses. Take a seat at Dark Table and try to decipher what it is your eating while in the pitch dark.

It puts a fun twist on a classic date night activity.

Get dessert for dinner

Or skip the traditional meal route and get dessert instead. Vancouver has a never-ending selection of dessert shops.

If you’re feeling like something a bit more edgy, you must try Perverted Ice Cream. Which like its name suggests, it’s ice cream with a twist.

Kayak at night

Go to Deep Cove, where they regularly host guided kayak tours at night. You can glide across the serene water with just the light on your kayak and enjoy the peaceful waters in the dark.

It’s a magical and romantic experience that outdoor enthusiasts will love.

Cocktails at Vancouver’s most secret bars

Hit up a lesser-known spot. Vancouver has a select few bars that are a little more under the radar. They’re the perfect place to try something new and sip on some unique cocktails in a secretive spot.

Some of the best ones are: Hello Goodbye, located underground with an unmarked door, in Yaletown. Or check out Boxcar, a cool speakeasy on Main Street with a wide variety of craft beers on tap and unique cocktails.
