Embrace Your Inner “Love Bug”
For a unique spin on Valentine’s Day, take your special someone to the Canadian Automotive museum in Oshawa for a day of car-related love stories.

It is a unique and educational way to spend Valentine’s Day, and is perfect for any car enthusiast!
Try to Escape
Instead of doing the “traditionally romantic” Valentine’s Day, build your relationship together in a new way by spending the day challenging yourselves at Durham Escape Rooms in Whitby!

It is an alternative but fun-filled way to spend Valentine’s Day together, and it will build on your teamwork skills as a couple!
Take in a Concert
Spend your Valentine’s Evening being serenaded by the vocal talents of Jersey Nights, as they sing hits from Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. The group has been a popular ensemble at dances and parties for years, and their audience participation makes their concerts an event to remember! This Valentine’s Day, have some fun and take in the live performance at the Regent Theatre in Oshawa.
Tap Into Creativity
With Valentine’s Day falling on a Thursday, you may find it easier to celebrate the day before; and what better way to have some fun with your loved ones than tapping into your creative side? Yaymakers.com will be hosting a paint night at the Pearson Pub in Whitby on February 13th where you and your significant other can learn to paint a beach scene with careful instruction from a talented artist. The evening costs $40.00 per person, and you can enjoy sipping a cocktail while creating memories and a gorgeous canvas you can take home!
