Hamilton has a ton of amazing restaurants but there are so many more things to do in this great city than just plain old dinner and a movie. Here are five fun date night ideas for you and your partner to enjoy.


  1. Picnic by a Waterfall

Grab a basket, your beloved and a blanket and settle down next to one of the one hundred gorgeous waterfalls this city is famous for.


  1. Date Night at the Drive-In

A disappearing pleasure, there are only a handful of drive-in movie theatres left in Ontario and Hamilton has one of the best. The Starlite takes you back in time with lots of great retro touches while delivering all the best summer blockbusters. Where else can you go to a movie wearing your PJ’s and no one will look at you twice?


  1. Knock Down some Pins

If you and your honey are more about blue jeans and a pint of beer rather than 5 star dining, Hamilton has lots of pool halls and bowling alleys where you can get your game on.  Make it interesting, loser does the dishes for a week or throw on some loud shirts and make it a double date night with your best couple friends.


  1. City Overlook

Romance doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. If you are looking for the perfect spot to snuggle with your sweetie, pick Sam Lawrence Park. The views of the city from here are spectacular.


  1. Star Gazing

For all you star-crossed lovers, the McMaster Planetarium is a fun place to lay back and hold hands while you gaze at the Galaxy above. There are interesting public shows held there all the time.
