When it's okay to splurge

Sometimes it’s nice to splurge a little, especially if it means having a fun time with your significant other. Whether you’re celebrating something special or just looking to share a unique experience, these expensive date ideas will be worth your while.


CN Tower EdgeWalk

Price: $225 per ticket

There’s nothing like standing on the edge of a 116 storey drop to bring two people together. The CN Tower EdgeWalk takes guests on a walk of the circumference of the CN Tower’s roof. It’s the world’s highest full circle hands-free walk on a five-foot wide ledge. The EdgeWalk isn’t a cheap date, but it’s worth splurging on if you have some extra spending money lying around.
