Valentine's Day is JUST around the corner and it generally turns out to be our busiest time of the year, which is hard to imagine after the holiday season we just had!
We've been in the community for a long, long time trading at the intersection of love, romance and of course flowers so we feel like we know a thing or two about how to knock someone's socks off on Valentine's Day.
With that, we wanted to share some of our favourite ideas for Valentine's Day dates. Hopefully this helps you impress that special someone and make it a truly unforgettable day!
The Breakwater Dining Room is a landmark of fine dining in Port Credit, and what better day to invest in a great meal than Valentine's Day.
The staff here are extremely attentive, knowledgeable, and most importantly, the food is incredible. Trust us on this one, it's right across the bridge from us over the Credit river so we've been coming here with our families and loved ones for years!
If you still don't believe us, take comfort in knowing that it's also been named the best restaurant in Mississauga.
Another Mississauga institution, Michael's Back Door is situated in the beautiful little village of Clarkson, just a 7 minute drive West of Port Credit along Lakeshore.
One of the best things about this place, besides the incredible, and we really do mean incredible food, is the fact that Michael's Back Door is just up the street from a wonderful little park overlooking Lake Ontario, situated in the enclave of Rattray Marsh. With a picturesque view of the Toronto skyline, it's the perfect spot to cap off a great night with a hand in hand walk.
Some people think of Snug Harbour as a summer hotspot, and it most certainly is, but with its enormous windows and beautiful view, it's also a terrific spot to spend a cozy winter night with your loved one.
One of the many benefits of Valentine's day falling on a Sunday this year is the chance to get out to a wonderful brunch! Lucky for you, that's one of Snug Harbour's specialties.
One option that's a bit out of the box, and perhaps a bit better for couples who've been together for a while and feel comfortable around each other (just in case the comic decides to do some especially tough crowd work) is Canada's most notorious comedy club, Yuk Yuk's.
There's currently no set show for Valentine's Day but it's only a matter of time before the club in Mississauga announces its Valentine's Day lineup. Alternatively, it's possible to book seats at the downtown Toronto location which has already begun selling seats for that Sunday's show. At $11.50 a piece to see some of the city's finest talent, it's a guaranteed good time.
A little over 40 years ago, this specific theatre in Toronto sent Gilda Radner and Dan Akroyd to Saturday Night Live where they became Hollywood royalty. Since then, the Second City has become a breeding ground for world class talent like Martin Short, Eugene Levy, Mike Myers, Catherine O'Hara, and spawned the enormously influential SCTV television show.
If you're looking for something casual and lighthearted but upbeat, there's no better way to spend your Valentine's Day. They've even got a special show for the 14th of February all setup and ready to go.
Based on what some of our clients have told us, and especially considering Valentine's Day is on a Sunday, which is generally THE day for relaxing, perhaps the greatest way to spend the day is to drive over to one of Mississauga's best Spa's for couples massages. Here's a list of great spots!
If you're an active couple, then you've probably already scheduled this for your Sundays throughout the winter months. Lucky for you, you can do this as a day trip getaway to either Mont St. Louis Moonstone or Glen Eden, or extend it into an entire weekend at a resort like Blue Mountain or Hockley Valley.
If you haven't thought about it yet, well you really should, because working out = endorphins!
