Was spending more time with your significant other on your New Year’s resolution list? After the mayhem of the silly season, reconnecting with your partner is a must. And we’ve got a brilliant idea, one the kids will love! Drop the kids (ages 6-12) off at The World of Kidtropolis for Kids Night Out of Feb 1, where you know they’ll have a ball, then head out for up to four hours with your partner for a movie, dinner, dessert, shopping, exploring or really anything you darn well please! Talk about a win-win!
The World of Kidtropolis is located in Richmond, which makes a trip to Steveston Village for fish and chips, sushi, beer at Britannia Brewing Company or a more upscale outing to Gudrun’s a no-brainer. Plus if the weather is fine, a wander along the boardwalk and a ice cream is a delightful way to while away an evening.
Better still, if you feel like a really special outing, Kids Night Out is perfectly aligned with Dine Out Vancouver where you can get your foodie fix at a restaurant you wouldn’t normally go to because (well kids…!), and order a multi-course meal at $15, $35, $25 or $45 price points. Might we recommend the picturesque Blue Canoe on the Steveston Pier, close by and a multiple award winning restaurant.
Other date night options in Richmond include heading over to the Cineplex Cinemas at SilverCity Riverport to catch the latest flick or getting your shop on at nearby Richmond Centre. So many options when you have four free hours to spend!
And trust us when we say, if you haven’t taken the kids to The World of Kidtropolis, it’s really a must, an indoor city where kids get to roam around and play in a safe environment that feels like a real town. There’s a grocery store (which is shockingly popular!), a post office, a camper, gas station, hospital, theatre, airport, police station, restaurant and school, and so much more. Children become firefighters, police officers, restaurant owners, teachers, stage performers and more. And they LOVE it.
