This little island in the heart of Calgary makes for a stunning spot to kiss. Prince’s Island Park offers killer views of the downtown skyline, photogenic bridges and flora, grassy expanses to spread out a blanket, and tons of trees to hide behind if you’re not into full-blown PDA but still want to steal a smooch.

Address:Ā 698 Eau Claire Avenue SW

Peter’s Drive-In

Peter’s is practically a Calgary institution, and youā€™ve just got to take your date to try one of their burgers paired with a milkshake. The drive-in allows patrons to choose up to three of their many flavours for milkshakes, meaning that there are over 4,500 flavour combinations up for grabs. Diners can eat their meal at one of the drive-in’s picnic tables, or bring food back to their cars to enjoy in private. You might want to skip the onion rings if you’re planning on going in for a kiss after your meal though!

Address:Ā 219 16th Avenue NE

What’s better than kissing someone you’re into? Kissing that person against a backdrop of iconic city views. Head to McHugh Bluff for an epic look at the downtown skyline (whether you want to get all sweaty climbing the stairs or keep it chill by parking at the top of the hill is up to you), walk through the park, and then, when the moment is right, close your eyes and lean in.

Address:Ā Crescent Road NW and Centre Street N

Heritage Park Historical Village

Share an old-fashioned date with that special someone. Explore the historical village, ride the train, check out the new Prospect Ridge area, sail on the Glenmore Reservoir by paddlewheel boat, and then, when you’ve reached the top of the Heritage Park midway’s Ferris wheel, share a kiss or two.

Address:Ā 1900 Heritage Drive SW

George C. King Bridge

Pack a picnic or visit Phil and Sebastian and Sidewalk Citizen inside the Simmons building for coffees and pastries, and then head over the St. Patrick’s Island and the George C. King bridge. The bridge offers unique views of Calgary’s skyline, and the island park has plenty of places to explore, spread out and enjoy your picnic or snack, and fun features to add to your day. Afterward, head back to the bridge and gaze out over the Bow River before going in for a smooch.

Address:Ā 234 Bow River Pathway

The Calgary Tower

Share a kiss at 191 metres above downtown Calgary.
