This is the cost of an average date in Vancouver

It’s not only the rent in Vancouver that’s expensive.

According to a recent study, the city is home to Canada’s most expensive “typical date.” Coming ahead of Toronto’s $142 average, a date night in Vancouver comes to $149.

The study defined a “typical date” as one that includes: a mid-range dinner for two, a shared bottle of wine, two movie tickets, and an 8 km taxi ride home.

The cost of a date in Vancouver might seem astronomical, but compared to some other countries, we’re getting off (relatively) easy in Canada. New York City’s average cost sits at $187, while Oslo, Norway is looking at $221.

That must be some good wine.

Still, $149 is nothing to scoff at. Luckily, there are plenty of free and cheap dates that you can plan in the city. And we must say, the holiday season is quite romantic.

Check out the Vancouver Christmas Market, where you can get into the holiday spirit for $10 or less. Visit Cultus Lake Christmas, or travel around the city to see the most extravagant light displays.

Instead of stressing over the dent in your wallet, you can focus on making an imprint on your partner’s heart. (Awww.)
