Date Night In Grande Prairie


Stepping Out On The Town In The Peace Country

Grande Prairie’s got plenty of sights and thrills to entertain the whole family. But sometimes you need, you know… A little alone time with your significant other. Ready to discover some of the secrets that make Grande Prairie an unforgettable date night destination?

If you’re from elsewhere in the Peace Region, or even further afield, the first thing to do is find a comfy place to kick off your boots at the end of the night. Luckily, you’ve got plenty of choices: from the Sandman, the Four Points by Sheraton, and the Service Plus Inns & Suites, you can really relax during your evening out knowing you’ve got a warm bed to head back to.

Dinner And Drinks

Dining sets the mood for a magical date night, so let’s find your next favourite meal. Two local gems that shouldn’t escape your radar include Legends (at the Grande Prairie Golf & Country Club), and the lounge at the Great Northern Casino. With a delectable range of appetizers, entrées, and everything in between, they offer plenty of opportunities to sneak a few fries off your date’s plate when they’re not looking.


After dinner, it’s time for the real fun! Whether you’re into theatre, sports, or solving puzzles, there’s an activity for you somewhere in the city. Local favourite Better Than Fred’s is a great place to kick back and relax, taking in live music from local talent or big-name guests.

If you want to be a bit more active, check out glow-in-the-dark mini golf (aka the best kind of mini golf) at Hornbrook Hollow, or take a trip out to Nitehawk Year-Round Adventure Park for some fun on the slopes. Skiers and snowboarders alike will have an amazing time on Nitehawk’s well-maintained terrain. And if you happen to visit in the summer, the site features hiking, mountain biking, summer tubing, and more!

For a more low key adventure, you can book a distillery tour at Latitude 55 on Friday and Saturday evenings (though be sure to call ahead and make a reservation). Grande Prairie Live Theatre is also great for an entertaining night out, with talented performers putting on productions in their cozy downtown venue. You might laugh or you might be moved to tears – but you will definitely enjoy our local stage talent!
