If you don’t have time to get away, why not book a tour for a few hours? Take a Haunted Walk of Kingston, Ottawa or Toronto and hear ghost stories by lantern light. Or visit the Elgin & Winter Garden Theatre Centre to tour the last operating “double-decker” theatre in the world & see the world’s largest collection of vaudeville scenery. Are there foodies out there? Why not combine a tour with nibbles of food and drink along the way? It’s a great date! Taste DeTours in Guelph offers guided food tastings and cultural walking tours.  Beer Lovers’ Tour Company in Toronto has a Beer and Chocolate Tour, among others. What could be more romantic than that!?  They also do European Beer Tours, if you have the time to get away.
