Top 10 Romantic Things to Do in Canada

Destination(s): Toronto

Teeming with beauty and wonder, it isn’t hard to find the top ten most romantic things to do in Canada. Casa Loma, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Toronto, is gorgeous in the summer. You can tour most of the castle, and the stables along with some spectacular gardens. For the ultimate pampering experience, book a massage, a make-over, or another relaxing service at the Absolute Spa at the Century. Jericho Beach is a great place to spend a day with someone special. Soak up some sun, take a walk along the shore, and stay for sunset on the beach. No trip to Calgary is complete without a visit to Calgary Tower. Take in the panoramic views, then have a relaxing dinner in the tower's rotating dining room. If visiting Canada during the blustery winter months, the Devonian Gardens is a must-visit, featuring tropical plants, waterfalls, fountains, reflecting pools and more. When planning a romantic getaway to Canada, make sure to choose some of our suggestions. read more about Top 10 Romantic Things to Do in Canada

Jericho Beach is a little bit more of a trek from downtown than Kits Beach, but it's well worth the extra 10-minute drive. Jericho beach is a favorite to locals because it's much less crowded than other popular beaches. Old waterlogged trees are scattered on the beach and act as the perfect back rest as you soak up the sun, or enjoy an evening picnic. The view from Jericho Beach is unlike any other; watch freighters and cruise ships stroll past as people windsurf in the distance. Across the water is West Vancouver and a beautiful mountain landscape. Visit in the evening and watch the sun set in all of its glorious colors. Short Description: Sun, sand and an amazing view! read more about Jericho Beach

2010 marks the 40th anniversary of Toronto's Factory Theatre - a staple venue in the city's alternative theatre community. Located just south of Queen Street West at the corner of Bathurst and Adelaide streets, the theatre has been housed in a designated heritage building since 1983. The 200 seat Mainstage and 100 seat Studio Cafe bring audiences original Canadian works across two intimate spaces. Through its edgy, contemporary content, Factory endeavours to step outside of traditional theatre conventions: its productions reflect the interest in "creative risk" at the heart of the company mandate.  Check out the 2009-2010 brochure for information on new works by Canadian playwrights George F. Walker, Kevin Loring and Michel Marc Bouchard. True to its commitment to making theatre alternative and accessible, Factory offers a number of ticket options to those looking to sate their hunger for culture without breaking the bank. read more about Factory Theatre

  • Saint-Pierre-de-l’Île-d’Orléans, GOA 4EO

This island was once known as Bacchus Island in honor of the god of wine for its abundant wild grapes. Now, Orleans Island is a popular destination for day trips. It takes about 20 minutes to drive there from Quebec City, and it is famous for its agricultural tourism. For those less interested in agricultural tourism, it is also a great spot for biking or driving around on its major road that circles the entire island. On weekends try arriving and leaving in the middle of the day to avoid the traffic jam that inevitably builds up on the only bridge connecting Orleans Island and Quebec City. read more about Orleans Island

  • Quebec City, G1R 5H3

The Musée Nationale des Beaux-Arts du Québec, located on the Plains of Abraham, is one of the hidden gems of Quebec City. And while today it may offer world-class traveling exhibitions, and impressive permanent collections, the Musée Nationale des Beaux-Arts du Québec was once a prison for some of Quebec City's most hardened criminals. The Musée Nationale des Beaux-Arts du Québec offers prison tours in the prison annexe, which contrasts strongly with the art in the museum wing and the human misery that was once contained within its walls. It is always a great option whenever the weather is not cooperating. read more about Musée Nationale des Beaux-Arts du Québec
