Jan 20 2023, 4:44 pm

When there’s a chill in the air, there’s certainly an opportunity for romance. Nothing hits quite like the dark, dreary days of February being brightened up by an exciting Valentine’s Day date on the calendar.

Since V-Day falls on a Tuesday this year, we have included things to do over the Valentine’s Day weekend and on the lovely day itself.

Here’s a list of all the date ideas we think boyfriends should be taking note of this Valentine’s Day in Edmonton.

Get some cute pics at the Muttart Conservatory

A date at the Muttart Conservatory is always romantic, but right now a huge Earth is currently floating high above the feature pyramid. Titled “Gaia,” the touring artwork is by UK-based artist Luke Jerram, who is known globally for his large-scale public artworks. It’s dazzling and getting a kiss under that sucker? Amazing.

Do a brunch or romantic dinner

Go ice climbing

The Edmonton ice climbing wall is the perfect chance for you to try your hand at ice climbing, with equipment rentals offered and orientations available for beginners. It’s a winter activity usually found in the Rockies, right in our own backyard.

Get into some gaming at the Rec Room in either South Edmonton Common or West Edmonton Mall, and get into that competitive spirit as you try and whoop your boyfriend at a game or two. If you are feeling adventurous, try axe throwing, bowling, or some simulators.

Splash around at the WEM World Waterpark

It’ll feel like a bit of a vacation in the middle of February when you visit the World Waterpark at West Edmonton Mall. Shoot down some massive slides, or just relax in the wave pool. Whatever you choose, it’s a prime thing to do this Valentine’s Day if you ask us.
