Flowers & Chocolates: The Best in Angus
Looking to treat your loved one(s) with a beautiful bouquet or some decadent chocolates? Jo-Dees Blooms has great options for Valentine’s Day flowers, and delivers within Angus. While red roses are a popular choice, there are plenty of other options in a variety of gorgeous hues. Looking for the best chocolates around? Skip the drugstore and pick up some gourmet treats at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory in nearby Barrie. They have a dazzling array of delicacies.
Quality Time: A Relaxing Night In
You can’t go wrong with celebrating Valentine’s Day by spending some quality time with your loved ones, whether that’s a partner, family or friends. Why not cook up a scrumptious dinner together at home? Mouth-watering classics are always a hit, like shrimp scampi, a steak dinner (perhaps with some mashed cauliflower), or this simple vegan and gluten-free Valentine’s Day menu which will suit all diets while still being delicious. For dessert, how about whipping up some chocolate-covered strawberries? Then enjoy a fun games night together, or make hot chocolate and kick back in front of the fireplace for a relaxing evening in.
Wining & Dining: A Night Out
If you’d like to go out for dinner, there are many restaurants with romantic atmospheres a short drive away in Barrie. Try out the Crazy Fox Bistro, Urban Dish Grill & Wine Bar or Il Buco Ristorante. Looking for a more exciting dining experience? You can catch some live music at a pub like Donaleigh’s Irish Public House, if that’s your scene. Or try a paint class at Canvas & Cabernet, where you can enjoy a fun evening of music, wine, charcuterie and painting.
Culture & Entertainment: Get Inspired
Head out for a day or evening of leisure with your loved one, whether that’s catching a flick at Galaxy Cinemas Barrie, checking out the local theatre scene (there are great plays on right now at the Georgian Theatre, Theatre by the Bay, and the Mady Centre for the Performing Arts), or paying a visit to the MacLaren Art Centre or another local art gallery.
Go on an Adventure: Outdoor Fun
Do you like to be active and to enjoy the outdoors with your loved ones? Why not use Valentine’s Day as an excuse to spend a day together on the slopes (skiing or snowboarding), hiking, or snowshoeing? To make your outdoor hiking or snowshoeing more romantic, try moonlit snowshoeing at Horseshoe Resort or take a stroll along Barrie’s waterfront to check out the Festival of Trees. For a unique and dreamy idea, consider booking a sleigh ride at Rolling Sands Percherons, where you’ll be guided through picturesque wooded lands by a horse-drawn carriage for two. How romantic!
