Best Calgary Date Ideas

Romance, Love and that Special Someone in Calgary

The Best Date Idea's in CalgaryEver get tired of doing the same ol’ thing for date night? Feeling like dinner and a movie is getting a little played out, and although the mountains are close you would like to stay in town?

Well I have a feeling that a lot of people are feeling this way and since it is gorgeous here in Calgary I have thought of some ideas that you could do here in Calgary for a successful summer date night!

Anything you do on a date can be wonderful since the whole point is to spend some quality time together!

I love the Calgary restaurant scene and there are a few Calgary restaurants I would like to suggest, they have a very romantic atmosphere and are a good start, or end, to any perfect date.

Some days do you just feel like taking it easy, perhaps going for a walk, holding hands and enjoying each others company?

For the Calgary hand holders:

Walking in Calgary on a dateWindow shopping in; Kensington, uptown 17th, Eau Claire, and Inglewood. All three location host unique, interesting boutique stores that are always fun to go in and out of while enjoying some of Calgary’s most popular places. You can also try going for a River Walk; my favourite place to walk is along elbow around 4th street sw, walking west along the path.

  • The Calgary Zoo
  • RiverWalk
  • The Science Centre
  • Art Galleries
  • Picnic’s and the Best Calgary Patios are always relaxing
  • At River Café in Princes Island Park you can pre order Pick Nic Baskets (24 hours notice) and pick them up! A perfect picnic date in beautiful Prince’s Island Park.

Maybe hand holding isn’t your thing (lets get real, it’s everyone’s’ thing)! But you’re more of a “doer”
