Valentine’s Day in Squamish
Here are just a few ways to make the day truly special:
Plan a Valentines Day Evening at Home
Sure you both live in one of the most beautiful places in North America, but you might be tempted to turn down the lights, build a fire in the fireplace, open a bottle of fine wine, and cuddle. Who doesn’t enjoy a simple romantic evening at home?
Here are a few great ideas to make your evening together special without ever leaving your home.
- Order Flowers: Pick up a bouquet of classic roses or go with fresh springtime tulips from Bungalow 968.
- Bring Home Dinner: Surprise your special someone by bringing home dinner. Howe Sound, the Joinery, the Copper Coil Still, Pepe & Gringos, and the Watershed all offer delicious foods to go.
- Don’t Forget the Sweets for Your Sweet: Stop by Xoco Chocolate for a box of delectable chocolates.
Take a Romantic Gondola Ride
Squamish is amazing so why not view it from the air with your beloved? Take a classic and titillating gondola ride on the Sea to Sky Gondola. As you are whisked high above the treeline, you will both be enthralled not only with each other but with the unparalleled views.
Have an Upscale Dinner
The very elegant Salted Vine Kitchen and Bar is offering an exceptional Valentine’s Day menu that includes lovely local favorites and other exotic options such as Perigord truffles. Please make advance reservations because they do book up. The Squamish Valley Golf Club also has a specialized holiday menu for lovers. Reservations are required.
Take it Easy at a Squamish Classic
If you don’t feel like dressing up, but you still want to enjoy a truly fabulous meal then why not head for a Squamish classic location like Howe Sound or Backcountry Brewing? The Copper Coil Still and Grill is also a fun little pub where you can enjoy a bite to eat and a drink. Even if you can’t afford to travel overseas this Valentine’s Day, you can still enjoy a foreign atmosphere at the Match Eatery which is a unique British themed pub. Other local favorites include Norman Rudy’s and Pepe’s Chophouse & Seafood. You may want to call ahead for reservations because, on special occasions, such as Valentine’s Day, the restaurants often book up.
Grab Lunch Together
This year, V Day falls on a weekday which means a lot of people will have to spend the day working. However, you can whisk your love off for a quick break. Who doesn’t like to break up the monotony of a workday with a yummy local lunch? Grab a bite at Zephyr Cafe or head over to the Green Mustache for a wholesome and organic menu. The Locavore Food Truck is also a fun option during the day. The Food Truck is permanently located at the Squamish Town Hub.
Take a Picnic
The weather in Squamish is notorious for changing rapidly. Valentines Day might be cold and miserable or springlike. If the forecast looks promising, then load up a picnic basket and head over to Quest University Canada to spread a blanket and watch the sunset.
This Valentines Day, its time to indeed sweep your special someone off their feet. Any of these ideas are sure to thrill.
