It is one thing to connect with your romantic partner. It is quite another to feel more connected with the universe. Just a 30-minute drive out of Toronto offers you access to a world beyond the city. The David Dunlap Observatory is a large astronomical observatory managed by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. It houses a 74-inch telescope which also happens to be the largest in Canada. There are public viewing nights that enable you to really see Orion's belt, as opposed to trying to peer through light pollution. Come during a meteor shower night for a special treat, watching meteors streak across the sky. Everyone has a little astronomy awe in them somewhere.
- Romantic Things to Do: "Stargazing nights aren't often and there are only a limited number of tickets. Check on the website and plan that date in advance for major brownie points with your significant other."
- Best for Romantic Things to Do Because: When you see the vastness of the universe up close, it becomes even more astounding that you have found each other.
