Canada’s Most Romantic Places for Valentine’s Day
The Huffington Post reports on “Canada’s most romantic places for Valentine’s Day”, however are their names just a grab for your heart or do these locations make you see love?
“Looking for a little romance this Valentine’s Day?
Statistics Canada has come up with a list of love-themed place names where you can “find your soulmate.”
They don’t quite look like the country’s most romantic cities, but we have to give some of them credit for milking their amorous names for all they’re worth.
Saint-Valentin, population 470, is named for the patron saint of love. It calls itself the “love capital” and hosts Le Festival de la Saint-Valentin every February.
(Village of Love)The Village of Love was most likely named in honour of the first CPR conductor, Tom Love, but that hasn’t stopped it from erecting a welcome sign saying, “You are now in Love.” Well played, small-town Saskatchewan, well played.
Heart Lake, AlbertaHeart Lake is located about 220 kilometres northeast of Edmonton and about 70 kilometres from beautiful Lac La Biche (pictured). With geography like that, it’s probably not the warmest place to spend your Valentine’s Day, but the campground is probably very nice in the summer.
You won’t find any half-naked gods running around with bows and arrows in this small town. English settler John Guy established the town as Cuper’s Cove in 1610 and the name has just evolved since then.
Another town possibly named after a fishing boat. We don’t know if you’ll find your soulmate there, but you will find a town of 220 that looks like a hamlet in the Irish countryside. That’s romantic, right?”
