Top 5 Romantic ‘First Date’ Spots In Canada

By on November 26, 2014

There are four simple ingredients for a successful date – a beautiful location, interesting activities, delicious food, and of course, you. While the last option is quite easy to take care of, the other three can be quite a challenge. For starters, picking the right location is hard enough in itself. But add the pressure of having to make a suggestion on inevitable questions such as, “Where do we go to next?” or “What do we do after?” or even the much harder-to-answer “Is that any good?”

Especially if you’re non-Canadian dating a Canadian in her own turf. It’s hard to think of interesting places besides the usual dinner date or nature walk.

Single men like us don’t have the time, or let’s face it, the interest, to check on all local listings for the best restaurants or best hotels in the area. You, however, are in luck. We have compiled some of the best places in Canada for a guaranteed, successful first date.

Lake Louise, Alberta

It’s a widely known fact that the women love sunsets, and Lake Louise has the most beautiful sunsets in the whole of Canada. Trust us; if the sunset view from your lakeside hotel doesn’t appeal to a woman’s most primal sense of appreciation, there is something wrong with her. Even, beer-chugging, hockey loving, self-proclaimed alpha men, have their hearts melted by the lake’s sheer beauty.

Pictures can’t capture the lake’s awesomeness fully, but here is a good attempt.  Hotels are conveniently located along the lake, offering a clear sunset view. Check them out in this listing.

Rue du Petit Champlain, Quebec

Ah, who can resist anything French? The country literally means romance. Okay, that was a lie, but you get the point. Women appreciate a great French experience. You don’t need to spend exorbitant amounts or euros for a successful date (although money makes a lot of things easier). Look no further than Quebec. There exists this little known street called Rue du Petit Champlain.

This strip is lined with cafes, French restaurants, and wine galleries. The street is located at the foot of Cap Diamant. It’s also the oldest commercial district not only in Canada, but also in the whole of North America. There is a lot of history to be experienced here. Munch on some nice pissaladiere, while drinking authentic Bordeaux wine. Have a nice stroll on the mountain base slash town square afterwards.

Whistler, British Columbia

Whistler, British Columbia

For a sure snuggle weather, go to British Columbia. This location is perfect for cuddling and all that good stuff. There are fun outdoor activities to do for a day date such as snowboarding, cable car, or sledding. If that doesn’t interest your girl, then the indoor hot tubs and spas will. Definitely a good place to go on a date with so many options.

Fort Garry Hotel, Winnipeg

Nothing says ‘I’ll take care of you’ better than candle light dinners, jazz music, and extremely comfortable seats. Kidding aside, the seats are no exaggeration. The jazz music is world class, and the food is impeccable. This is perfect for brunch dates, if both of you like to eat a lot. Pigging out on the lunch buffet can be a start of a healthy, lasting relationship, right? If you prefer the classic candle light dinner however, then this hotel is still your best bet.

Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

Two words: Whale. Watching. Go aboard a cruise. Rent out the deck. Arrange a private table and a quartet. Watch whales. It’s simple, really. If the whales don’t cooperate with your romancing endeavors, then don’t worry. Dolphins will always back you up. And dolphins never fail.
