Cupid Comes to Capilano

February 14, 2012

I’ve never been much of a Valentine’s Day fan.  Contrary to popular belief surrounding the ‘single person who hates Valentine’s Day’ this is not because of the lack of a Prince Charming in my life, no.

This is about the simple fact that red, white and pink jelly beans are the worst kind.  They all taste like soap.  Yet, these are the kind that my Father always gets me.  I ask for the spicy cinnamon hearts and I get the gross jelly beans.  Story of my life.

Luckily for me, this year I have a plan.  I will simply bring the gross jelly beans into the office and let my co-workers devour them (not that they have bad taste or anything …) while I sneak downstairs into the Trading Post and quickly buy up four fudge hearts.  Then eat them.  All.  Without sharing, obviously.

I’d like to point out that I’m not the only one who finds love at the Capilano Suspension Bridge – because that’s what chocolate is to me – in fact, we have a whole slew of beautiful couples who make the Capilano Suspension Bridge their romantic date spot.  From first dates to engagements to weddings, the great outdoors seems to bring people together and we couldn’t be happier about it!

Maybe it’s the fresh air.  Maybe it’s the adrenaline you get from tiptoeing along Cliffwalk.  Maybe you just really love the person you’re with and it has absolutely nothing to do with us (but, as a member of the Marketing department, I’m going to suggest otherwise…) Either way this place is a wonderful adventure for those looking to do something a little different this Valentine’s Day.

If this is going to be a first date, our tour guides will break up any awkwardness between you (they’ll make you laugh at least once, promise!) and if you’re wanting to tie the knot you can contact us at for information on our venues.

I can’t say that I’ve personally fallen in love on our Treetops Adventures.  Or the Suspension Bridge.  Okay, or Cliffwalk for that matter.  In fact, I haven’t been on a date here at all…  BUT I have had someone I was dating visit me here on my lunch break…  I gave him the grand tour (well, the express version, anyway).  He lives far away and was in town for a day to catch an international flight, so it was a two birds with one stone kind of deal.  While we were walking down the stairs at the end of Cliffwalk he looked at me and said “You are so lucky.  It’s beautiful.  Maybe I should move here.”  Ah HA!  Capilano Suspension Bridge, solving the long distance relationship issue since 1889!

But hey, what do I know.  I just work here.
