Best Date Spots In Sudbury

Valentine’s Day is coming up, but with your busy life it might seem time-consuming to research different date spots. If you don’t have time to look up date spots, we have conveniently created a list, so you can identify which place will work best for you and your lover. Read it down below:

1. Bell Park Walkway/Boardwalk

Bell Park is one of the most iconic locations to visit in Sudbury for a good reason: the scenery is beautiful! The Bell Park boardwalk is also popular to visit, as it provides a view of both the beach and the trees. While February is a cold month, the boardwalk is around 2 km long, which makes it a perfect length to walk, so you and your date can warm up. If you and your partner love the cold, and like staying active, the Bell Park boardwalk is a great choice for a date!

2. Pasta E Vino Ristorante

What better way to get to know your date, then by inviting them out to a fancy Italian dinner? With many pasta dishes to choose from, you can be sure to find something that suits both of your fancies. Sometimes simply sitting down, eating great food, and talking to someone you love can help you learn a lot about their personality and interests. Check out the website for Pasta e Vino Ristorante here.

3. Onaping Falls

Just outside of Sudbury, you can visit Onaping Falls for an outdoor adventure. Not everyone likes to hike when on a date but travelling on an outdoor path with a waterfall as the destination is sure to make you and your date closer than ever, especially if you make this trek on a cold winter day. If you plan on travelling to Onaping Falls during winter, make sure to check that the trail is open before heading out on your journey.

4. Puzzled Escape Rooms

Were our outdoor suggestions not thrilling enough for you? Puzzled Escape Rooms is a great place to get out of your comfort zone and learn how to work as a team. If you have friends who are also trying to figure out where to go on a date in Sudbury, why not invite them for a double date with you and your partner? By completing an escape room, you will learn the different strengths and weaknesses of each individual, making it a great place to see if your personalities compliment each other.

5. Kuppajo Espresso Bar

Who else needs to start their day with a delicious cup of coffee? If you are looking to spend a day out with your special someone, we suggest beginning at a café. At Kuppajo Espresso Bar, you can begin your day by ordering appetizers and coffee. If you don’t finish your food and drinks, you can take them out with you while you walk hand-in-hand around downtown Sudbury. You can spend the rest of the day peaking in all the little shops, while enjoying each other’s company. If you still have energy, you can end the day by watching the sunset at Bell Park.

5 Outdoor Winter Activities To Do In Sudbury

5 Outdoor Winter Activities To Do In Sudbury

Is anyone else a winter enthusiast? If you love the cold, and the thrill of winter activities, you are going to love the list we have created! Read below for 5 outdoor winter activities you can do in Sudbury.

1. Skating

Living in Canada for the winter comes with one requirement: skating at least once in the winter. When winter hits and ice begins to form on ponds or lakes, it’s time to strap up your laces and head outside for an exciting day of skating with friends or family! If skating by itself isn’t thrilling enough for you, embrace your Canadian identity and crack out your hockey stick and puck for some outdoor shinny. Check out Ramsey Lake and Nina’s Way Skating Paths for the best outdoor skating rinks!

2. Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides

Who said outdoor winter activities had to be fitness related? While the holiday season is over, that doesn’t mean you should stop living in a magical winter wonderland! At Wagonwheel Ranch, you can enjoy a horse drawn sleigh ride with hot chocolate and a bonfire to fulfill all your wintery needs. To plan for a private sleigh ride at Wagonwheel Ranch, click here.

3. Winter Camping

Have you gone camping in the summer? If you have, how much different would it be if you went in the winter? Winter camping encompasses spending nights in canvas tents that are heated by a wood stove. If you’d prefer to upgrade from a tent, you can always book a winter cabin or cottage, so you have access to all amenities like electricity, running water, and heat. Wherever you decide to camp, winter camping is an eye-opening experience for anyone who likes to camp in the summer. If you are looking for a place to camp this winter, look up Windy Lake Provincial Park today!

4. Snowshoeing

Snowshoeing seems like something straight out of a historical movie, but the reality is that you can still partake in snowshoeing today. Head down to Kivi Park, where you can rent snowshoes for the day, as well as choose a trail to walk through. If you’re a more experienced snowshoer, you can travel on the longer paths. If you are trying snowshoeing for the first time and would like to get accustomed to wearing snowshoes, you can choose a shorter path to practice on.

5. Snowmobiling

Did you know that snowmobiling has been a popular sport in Sudbury for over 30 years? This is why many trails in Sudbury are dedicated solely to snowmobiles. In Sudbury, there are 3 main trails you can travel through: Chiniguchi Wolf Loop, Rainbow Elk Loop, and Cartier Moose Loop. While traveling through these trails, you can take time to view the beautiful snowy scenery, as well as enjoy the excitement of snowmobiling!

After spending time in the cold, why not settle down in a comfy, warm, and accommodating hotel? The Quality Inn Sudbury is the perfect location for those who are visiting Sudbury for these outdoor winter activities. To book your stay, call us at (705) 675-1273.
