You don’t have to worry about running out of date ideas when you’re in Vancouver. The city is literally teeming with so many romantic spots to make you and your special someone swoon. We compiled these destinations and came up with these top 6 date places where love, romance, and fun never stop:

  1. Vancouver Aquarium
    845 Avison Way (Stanley Park)

    Whether it’s your first date or your fifty-first, spending the day with your loved one, coupled with marine animals at the Vancouver Aquarium, will
    always be fun. Here, you can see animals like mysterious jellyfish, cute sea otters, and a wide variety of colorful fish. The warm glow of the aquarium also sets a low-key romantic vibe for an unforgettable time.

    Check out the aquarium’s After Hours event. During this interesting time, guests 19 years old and above can enjoy adult-targeted entertainment and listen to unique animal rescue stories as they sip on a glass of wine. It’s a great opportunity to impress your date and turn up the romance.

  2. Spanish Banks Beach
    4801 Northwest Marine Drive

    The Spanish Banks Beach is the perfect outdoor date spot for those looking to get away from the city. Its coastal vibe and scenic location make it one of the most romantic date destinations in Vancouver.

    Set your romance mode several notches up with your date here, starting with a nice walk while holding hands in the morning or early afternoon. Then
    immerse yourselves in the beach’s crystal-clear waters. Then just before twilight, set up a picnic for two and watch the sun brilliantly setting over the coast.

  3. Dark Table
    2611 West 4th Avenue

    Dark Table gives a fun new spin on the term, “blind date.” This restaurant aims to give couples a unique and intimate experience by letting them dine with the lights off. The darkened setting will intensify your other senses for an unforgettable culinary experience.

  4. VanDusen Botanical Garden
    5151 Oak Street

    Go on a long romantic stroll in VanDusen Botanical Garden, a 55-acre paradise with more than 7,500 plant species. For a little more adventure, the
    garden’s picture-perfect Elizabethan hedge maze is a fun and challenging place where you and your date can get lost, whether intentionally or unintentionally.

    After exploring the garden, visit the Shaughnessy Restaurant found inside the premises. Be filled with the heady scent of flowers all around you as you dine and make plans with your partner.

  5. Blue Martini
    1516 Yew Street

    For a night of romance, music, and great food combined, Blue Martini is the place to visit. The restaurant mixes the charm of New Orleans with the
    best Italian flavors. Have a nice cozy evening while you sip some martinis and enjoy the smooth soul, jazz, and blues music. To complete the romantic vibe, Blue Martini has the perfect view of Kits Beach from its patio.

  6. Capilano Suspension Bridge Park
    3735 Capilano Road

    The Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is not your usual date place. Couples come here for thrills and adventure on top of romance. The 500-foot-long
    suspension bridge with a 230-feet drop over the Capilano River offers breathtaking view for those with sturdy legs and stomachs. End your visit
    by dining at the Cliff House Restaurant which overlooks the stunning West Coast rainforest. During the holidays, the bridge looks even more romantic with lights adorning the area.
