On Skates

Crashing into each other while trying to twirl on ice is the stuff of Romcom dreams, and that makes an ice arena the perfect place to hear your partner say yes.

Get Out Into Nature

The Crow Hassan dog park is a top choice for pup-parents to propose in the company of their furry blended family. Or, bring an insta-worthy blanket (and a bottle of bubbles in your backpack), and propose in the solitude of a winter picnic.

Christmas Tree Farm

Plan a day to chop your own tree, and make your partner's engagement ring the first gift under that tree.

Proposing downtown has a very Breakfast-At-Tiffany's feel about it. Clear your whole day. Propose early, and then bask in your engagement at any number of eateries, spas, museums, or any of the other treasures a downtown proposal offers.
