Romantic things to do in Vancouver (near to the SkyTrain)
Our map was made according to a particular set of rules. Firstly, all date ideas must be an easy-enough walk from each SkyTrain stop. Ideally, the closer the better. As such we’ve tried to make sure that each recommendation is a maximum of 5-15 minute walk from each station - even those on the recently opened Evergreen extention.
Secondly, all dates must genuinely good, enjoyable suggestions. To help settle on what makes a date enjoyable, we went with sheer popularity. At the time of publication, every local date idea mentioned scored an average of 4 stars or higher when its rankings on Yelp, TripAdvisor and Google Maps were averaged. (Although we had to settle for a 3.8/3.9 in some parts of Richmond and Surrey!).
Thirdly, we strived for diversity. Vancouver date ideas are so many that it would be doing the city a disservice to just mention bars or restaurants. We wanted both, plus activities and entertainment! So, we created a map that has date ideas for all tastes and budgets, (colour- coded for ease of use!).
