If you’re starting to think that dinner, a movie and flowers are overdone for Valentine’s Day, try some of these unique ideas for you and your significant other.
1. Bring your sweetheart and a few friends for a game of Archery Tag
Think paintball, but with foam-tipped arrows instead of hard, flying balls of paint. 6Pack Indoor Beach is the first and only place around Vancouver to try out this interesting sport.
2. Go shooting
If you’ve never tried firing a gun, what better place than an indoor gun range? There are certified instructors there to show you the ropes, and you can wager a friendly bet with your hunny to see who’s the better shooter.
3. Get race-ready
Head over to Speeders in Vancouver for a race around the track using electric GoKarts. Vroom vroom!
4. Try roller skating
If you haven’t tried roller skating, or rollerblading, since you were a kid, now is the time to get back to your roots! Central City Arena offers a public skating night on Saturdays. Make the Valentine’s Day fun last well into the weekend with this unique plan!
5. Sip some hot cocoa
Valentine’s Day and hot chocolate are a match made in Heaven! Vancouver’s Hot Chocolate Festival ends on Valentine’s Day again this year, so check it out.
6. Check out Vancouver Aquarium’s Sealed With A Fish event
The Vancouver Aquarium is hosting an after-hours, adults-only event on Valentine’s Day. Get your tickets now, because they’ll sell out fast!
7. Go bungee jumping
Because what says “I love you” more than diving off a cliff together?
8. Go to a musical
Motown The Musical is coming to Vancouver just before Valentine’s Day.
9. Spend an evening under the stars
Visit the H. R. MacMillan Space Centre and spend a romantic evening under the starts.
10. Go snowshoeing
Head up to Mount Seymour and rent some snowshoes. Snow, romance and a view you won’t forget!
