5 Must-See Places this Spring

There’s nothing quite like Canada in the Spring. After the ice has thawed and the snow has melted, we’re left with newly sprouted blossoms, warm sunshine and lush greenery. Now that it’s finally time to shed the winter coats and ditch the earmuffs, you’ll want to make sure you check out some of the great places and events that are perfect for a first date or even just a sunny weekend. Whether you’re staying local or heading out of town, now’s the time to take in everything this great country has to offer.

Enjoy an afternoon in High Park

Situated in the heart of bustling Toronto is High Park, home to hundreds of different species of flowers and plants, as well as an array of wildlife. Take a walk through the Spring Creek and West Ravine nature trails to spot native birds and other creatures. You’ll have earned a break after you’re done, so make sure to pack some snacks and enjoy a picnic by Grenadier Pond – or go fishing if you’re into the idea of catching your own lunch!

 See sunset from the CN tower

The view from Toronto’s stately CN tower is wonderful at the best of times, but at sunset it’s nothing short of majestic. Take your date up to the top of the tower to watch dusk fall upon the city – it’s a breathtaking experience. Then enjoy a delicious dinner at the 360 Restaurant which revolves slowly, allowing you to take in all of Toronto while enjoying a romantic meal.

Get Out of Town

Take a day trip to Kelowna, BC – a beloved Canadian vacation spot. Nestled in the Canadian Rockies, Okanagan Valley experiences beautiful weather, especially in the Spring. Enjoy a boat ride along the marina or a round of golf on the many courses. Take a guided wine tour where you’ll meet winemakers and taste some of the region’s finest wines. Head to Fresco for a terrific dinner made from delicious local ingredients.

Enjoy the Kamloops Spring Festival

A great first date involves food, culture, unique experiences and great weather. Luckily the Kamloops Spring Festival features all of these things and plenty more. Taking place in late May in downtown Kamloops, the festival features live music, street food, live demonstrations and lots of fun activities. Surprise your date with fresh flowers on sale throughout the festival.
