Town of Riverview / Planning the Perfect Summer Date in Riverview

Summer is here, and love is in the air! And I think we can all agree, there’s no better time of year to plan the perfect date with your favourite human than in the summer months. You can wear whatever you want (no need to worry about it looking wrinkled when you remove your winter coat), and barefoot footsies under the table is entirely acceptable. The best part? You can catch a sunset together on the riverfront without freezing your buns off! Yes, there’s no better time to surprise your special someone with a romantic date than now. Flying solo? Grab your girlfriends or guy pals and hit the town. We thought we’d pull together the perfect itinerary to help you plan a date to remember. 


Book a spa day together
The only thing more romantic than the words “I love you” is “I booked massages for us, honey.” Am I right? Surprise your boo with a trip to Neroli Spa for relaxing massages, or a pedicure to get those tootsies ready for long walks on the riverfront. If you're anything like us, we haven't had a trim in months! Book a full experience with hair care, nail care and therapeutic treatments that will leave you waxed, relaxed and ready to go.

Snap some selfies around town
Have you ever seen those movie montages where a beautiful couple takes cute photos and creates memories scattered with small town charm? Maybe it’s Paris; perhaps it’s New York City. Well, there’s no reason you can’t recreate those montages on your own. Hop in the car and explore your own fresh-air scenic tour, or take a stroll on the waterfront for plenty of photo ops. A little secret? If you head just outside of town, you’ll find the stunning William Mitton covered bridge. Save those memories so that you can look back at them and smile when we’re in the middle of a snowstorm in January. 

Make it a dinner for two 
Why not make a reservation at one of the many restaurants in town once you've tuckered yourselves out exploring your surroundings. Whether you’re in the mood for elevated Asian cuisine, or looking to share a stack of nachos, there are plenty of options for you to choose from. Show off your new do' and polished fingers while grabbing some grub. But first, take a peek at our list of “Riverview Restaurants You’ve Gotta Try This Summer.”

Stroll the Riverfront Trail arm in arm
Summer nights are the perfect time to walk hand in hand on the beautiful Riverfront Trail with the sunset at your back. With 5.2km to cover, just think of the endless conversations you can have together as you walk! And if you time your visit perfectly with the sunset or Tidal Bore, we’re pretty confident you will win some major brownie points. Finally, capture a timeless moment standing beneath the covered bridge.

Have a nightcap 
Speaking of Riverview’s spectacular sunsets, we recommend ending your evening with a sunset view at the Holy Whale Beer Garden behind the Fundy Chocolate River Station. In the mood for a nightcap? You will have over ten craft beers to choose from while you toast to a perfect day together. Or you can grab a sassy cocktail at Five Bridges Bar and Grill and watch the big game over some appies. Well, there you have it! After what was a stressful past few months for many, we hope that this little itinerary can help you surprise someone you love with a memorable night in Riverview. We can’t wait to hear about it, so make sure to tag us on social media! We promise to let you take credit for the ideas! #AGreatPlaceTo...
