Freshly in love this season, or looking to fan your romantic flame? Here’s the top Canadian 5 hotspots and holiday date outfits to try this winter.
Dating around the holidays is like a freshly fallen snowflake—each outing, delicate and unique, needs to be handled as such, or you might just watch them fade away. On that festive warning, we’ve rounded up the hottest spots in Canada to take your date during the holidays—for those who embrace Canadian winters and the ones who enjoy it from their windowsill with a mug of hot chocolate—plus the appropriate holiday attire, for every romantic status this season.
Winter 2012 holiday date idea #1. Go skating on Ottawa’s Rideau Canal
Date rundown: Grab your skates on a Saturday afternoon and head to Canada’s famed and loveliest outdoor skating rink. Don’t worry if you’ve never learned how to skate, all the more reason to hold on tightly. Keep up the adorably festive romance and make your way to the Byward Market together to split a piping hot and cinnamony Beaver Tail.
Where: The world’s largest skating rink on the Rideau Canal that runs through downtown Ottawa.
Date style: Wrap yourself in your favourite knits: scarf, mitts and Canadian-style toque. Your favourite Christmas sweater (the one with the huggable holiday polar bear) is both totally appropriate and subtly irresistible.
Winter 2012 holiday date idea #2. Hit the slopes in Whistler, B.C.
Date rundown: Could there be anything more Canadian than spending the day at Whistler Blackcomb, then heading back for late-night fondue at The Chalet at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Hotel—with your ski instructor?
Where: The Fairmont Chateau Whistler, 4599 Chateau Blvd., Whistler, B.C.
Date style: Lots and lots of layers. Strap on a pair of your warmest winter boots and puffy down-filled coat and you’re ready for a day on the hills.
