Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and for some figuring out plans can make it a stressful time. Do you face the crowds and go out to dinner? Do you even address the day at all? Valentine’s is supposed to be fun. It’s a time when you can celebrate the love you have for partners and friends. Here are four Valentine’s ideas to inspire you.

Ice Skating at Robson Square
Ice skating at Robson Square is the perfect activity to cap off the night. This is a great spot to go with friends or for a romantic skate with your partner. The best part is, it’s free to skate! There are rentals available if you need them though. Skates are $5, helmets are $2 and the ambiance is free.

Hugs & Fishes Dinner & Sleepover
If you’re looking for something unique to do this Valentine’s, the Vancouver Aquarium is hosting a dinner and sleepover on Saturday, February 11th. Start your night off with dinner in the Canaccord Gallery with the option to stay the night in the Tropics Gallery surrounded by jelly fish and sharks. A behind the scenes tour of the Aquarium is also included.

Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival
If you’re into a low-key Valentine’s you can check out the Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival. Grab a drink from one of the 25 chocolate makers participating and take a wonder around the neighbourhood. The beverages range from the traditional to the usual (chocolate and bacon…).

Dinner and Snowshoeing on Grouse Mountain
If you’re looking for more of an adventure on Valentine’s, head up to Grouse Mountain. From the gondola there’s easy access to trails for the beginner up to the advanced snowshoe-er. After your walk head into The Observatory or Altitudes Bistro for dinner with an unbeatable view of Vancouver.
