In particular, Quebec City is one of Canada’s most romantic cities and a prominent honeymoon location for lovebirds. Its European style architecture provides a sentimental atmosphere and elegance that makes you feel like you’re in a fairy tale. Here are 15 ways you can celebrate Valentines day in Canada:

This film theater in Toronto is a necessity during the warmer months. During the day, the same space is used as a driving area. At 9 pm, films with sound streaming through an FM radio station are played. Snacks and drinks can be bought at the complex bar. Films are usually just a few weeks old and the projectors aren't very modern, but they have a suave retro impression.

2. Spend A Day At The Rooftop Lounge

We include this hotel due to the lovely rooftop lounge. A day spent by the swimming pool (which can be from 7 am to 7 pm during the summer) is a day well spent, provided of course you had enough sunscreen on and remember that early cocktails have to be placed. The view from this city hotel is amazing, ranging from a skyscraper to a skyscraper. It is one of the most popular places for New Year parties in Canada.

3. Try Your Hand At Painting

If the last time you worked a paintbrush on canvas was in school, it's time to rethink it. Cocktails ' N Canvas has events all across Toronto. Instead of waiting for you to go haywire on a canvas, everybody in the room paints the same thing (though they look drastically different). An artist in the front of the hallway will steer you through the brushstroke. It's as easy as “draw a circle in blue at the right corner" and move from there. You’ll be an artist before you know!

Toronto has lots of fun dance lessons! If you were trying ballroom, salsa, tango, jazz, house and so on, Valentine’s Day is the ideal occasion. The City Dance Corps and Dance Teq proffer many different styles, but we strongly recommend the Underground Dance Centre. From dancehall to heels, hip hop, popping, ballet, street jazz, they teach almost everything.

The greatest thing about a vacation? Hogging on food! Toronto has some wonderful dessert cafes. We recommend all chocolate lovers to head to Cacao 70. Although this sweet shop in Toronto has two locations, its Distillery District edition has the incentive of suave cobblestone streets. If you can't choose between delicious or tangy, the European-style Crêperie in the city, Café Crêpe, offers a wide range of food and dessert options and drinks. Light Cafe offers a wide range of desserts and cold and hot drinks.

10. Connect With Shen Acupuncture

This is a strange activity for you and your beau to experience but believe us, it will be worth it. The acupuncture clinic in Roncesvalles offers acupuncture sittings for pairs (and singles). It is designed specifically to “open the heart and generate energy.” Skip the potions and rely instead on ancient Chinese practice for a romantic ambiance.
