Also, two theatres in Edmonton are hosting a special anniversary screening of the extended edition of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the KingĀ on Thursday, April 20.

What: While the end of the regular season may be nearing, we can’t wait for the start of the playoff season. Besides, what could be more romantic than a big ol’ smooch while “La Bamba” plays after an Oilers win?

Muttart Conservatory

What: A date at the Muttart Conservatory is always romantic. When you visit the Muttart, not only do you get to enjoy more than 700 species of plants in three climate-regulated biomes, but it’s also a fantastic spot to get some cute photos.

Check out some prehistoric species at the Royal Alberta Museum

What: The Royal Alberta Museum’s extensive collections are impressive and offer fascinating exhibits in archaeology, Indigenous studies, work-life industries, and Earth and Life Sciences. It’s an ideal destination for a date in Edmonton!
