UPDATED for Spring 2020
It’s finally going to start warming up, the snow is disappearing and we are loving the forecast ahead. Spring is our favourite time of year in Calgary.
The increased sunlight increases our body’s release of serotonin in the brain causing everyone to be happier. Natural food sources become more abundant for animals to start to reproduce. Mother nature's beautiful colours become apparent in many landscapes as flowers come out of hiding and start blooming. It’s also a fantastic time to get out of hibernation and have some fun with your partner.
We gathered up some date night ideas that are perfect for Spring. Make sure to use a few of these spring date night ideas to get your date on this Spring and let us know how they turned out in the comments below.
Get a Breath of Fresh Air
Enjoy the warmer fresh Spring air and enjoy a short or long walk together as a couple. You may decide to do a smaller trail at Westwinds Park and take a ride down the zip line or go for a long walk with a view on top of Nose Hill. Whatever you choose, make sure to bring along drinks, a light snack and maybe even Fido too.
Watch the Animals
The arrival of Spring brings Aggie Days. A free family-friendly event where you can enjoy small petting zoos, rabbit races and watch athletic dogs herd a group of sheep into a pen by listening to their handler's commands. Leave the kids at home and enjoy a nice day out together or bring them along for a nice family-friendly date night out.
Spring is a quieter time to head over to the Calgary Zoo to enjoy the animals, a nice walk and maybe even an ice cream cone or two. Check out the Safari Brunch and enjoy comfort breakfast foods, including a chocolate fountain with fresh fruit, eggs Benedict, a waffle bar, cooked to order omelettes, and much much more.
