Let’s face it, most dates and general get togethers center themselves around food.

Constantly going out for food, however, adds up extremely fast.

It's also especially difficult if you’re a student who wants to keep things affordable. The list includes some specific ideas I have personally tries as well as some research that will help you create your own ideas!

Whether you are in a long-term relationship looking for some new places to go or just need an idea for a first date, I hope you can find inspiration here. If you are serious about finding some fun and unique things to do, make a date of it to simply wander around your city with no plan or destination!

I definitely recommend this for couples because it will be a relaxing day out that will eventually lead to more date nights.

I definitely spent first year wandering downtown with my boyfriend, finding cool, cheap restaurants to eat at and new activities we hadn’t tried before!

Sure, its cheesy, but these locations are free to walk around and take in the sights, so why not?

Some examples are the Parliament Building, Breakwater, the Victoria Public Market, and Beacon Hill Park all within walking distance of each other near the harbor in Downtown Victoria.Before university, I had never properly played pool.Naturally, when we planned a date night to Peacock Billiards, I wasn’t sure what to expect. You pay per hour of pool, and it depends on how many people you bring.If you are a group of two, however, it will only cost you about each for a whole hour of pool.Peacock Billiards also has ping-pong, a bar, a bistro to order food from and is open until 1 am on weekdays and 2 am on the weekends!Here is my list of the best places to eat in Victoria (that I have been to, I am constantly looking for unique new spots).
