Every couple needs a good date night a few times a month—if not weekly! But after a trying day with the kids or a long week at work, getting out for date night can itself feel like work. Sometimes what’s called for is an easy, breezy evening close to home, minus all the fuss.

 

Luckily, if you live in a North Burnaby home there are plenty of places you can escape to without spending a fortune on cabs or sitters. Because why take a pricey taxi ride into Downtown Vancouver when there’s something even better just around the corner?

 

Here’s are just five of many great date ideas my North Burnaby friends and colleagues brainstormed with me.

 

1. Hit the trails

There’s nothing like a casual, scenic bike ride to make the day melt away so you can focus on each other. Just don’t go so fast you’re unable to speak! The bike trails in North Burnaby offer especially stunning views, in particular around the SFU Campus at Burnaby Mountain.

 

2. Hone your taste buds

The craft brewery craze is alive and well in Burnaby. You and your sweetie can pull up a seat at Dagreaad Brewing (3191 Thunderbird Crescent, Burnaby) and get familiar with their Belgian-style beers. Each order a tasting flight with different brews, and get sharing! Then hit up nearby Burnaby Brewing Company (3051 Underhill Ave), where you can get the skinny on brewing up your own customizable beer (or just taste some more). Or enjoy the famous Steamworks Brewery & Taproom (3845 William Street). There is something for everyone (and every taste) in the region.

 

3. Dine al fresco at Burnaby Lake

Who says date night needs to be at night? Gather together provisions from your pantry—some cheese, crackers, nuts, and grapes—grab a bottle of your favourite beverage, snag the throw from the back of your couch, and head off to Burnaby Lake. Choose from one of the many picturesque picnic sites and spend the afternoon catching rays and catching up.

 

4. Find hidden treasures

If you're a new North Burnaby home owner, there’s a good chance you’re always on the lookout for the next perfect piece of furniture or décor that is decidedly “you.” Turn that hunt into date time by scouring the many local antique shops for that piece that speaks to you both. Check out my earlier blog post on local antique shops to plan your route.

 

5. Time travel at Glenburn Soda Fountain

What’s more adorably romantic than a milkshake for two? Sip on a classic chocolate shake nose to nose, or go all out with one of the many specialty sundaes this local Burnaby Heights favourite has on offer.

Exciting times are afoot in North Burnaby real estate, especially when it comes to the neighbourhood of Brentwood. Already an exciting area to live in—thanks in large part to its great location in the centre of Metro Vancouver and its well-connected transportation hub—Brentwood is these days growing even more abuzz with energy.

 

As one of the four designated Town Centres of Burnaby, Brentwood is currently getting a lot of attention from both city council and from developers.

 

As many people will know, the reimagined Amazing Brentwood development, billed as “a complete global community that brings everything you need and everything you love within walking distance, with rapid transit at your doorstep,” is nearing completion. Due to open in Spring 2019, this master-planned community is taking what used to be a regular shopping mall and turning it into a mixed-use area focused on liveability and sustainability, bringing together cyclist, transit, and car networks and offering residential, commercial, and public spaces, all built to the highest environmental standards.

 

For those looking to live in the most contemporary of spaces, experience the highest degree of liveability, and basically have the world at their fingertips, buying North Burnaby real estate in the surrounding Brentwood developments offers the exact right fit. (For information on pre-sale opportunities, contact Pauline directly.)

 

While the Amazing Brentwood offers cutting-edge living opportunities, the older areas of this Burnaby community hold their own kind of glamour. The majority of the homes in Brentwood are single-family dwellings, so if you are looking for a more traditional family home, there are several charming streets where you and your loved ones can have a front yard, a back garden, and even enough space to set up your own mini soccer field.
