Whether you're celebrating Valentine's Day with a long-term beau or just starting a new relationship, there's a lot to do in London on this day of love.

Love Bumps
There are lots of easily accessible hills in London that make for some great tobogganing. At the corner of Wharncliffe and Commissioners is Basil Grovner Park, which has a bowl-shaped depression. In the south end of the city is White Oaks Park, which has a large hill in the middle of it. Out in the west end is Byron Somerset Elementary School, a popular location in the area known for its great hills. A more centrally located hill is in Doidge Park at the Southeast corner of Cheapside Street and Wellington Road, near St. Joseph's hospital (just in case).

Be a Little Cheesy
It may not sound romantic, but who doesn't want a heart shaped-pizza? On V-day, Boston Pizza is selling heart-shaped pizzas, and it's for a good cause! One dollar from the sale of each pizza will go to the Boston Pizza Foundation, which supports several local charities. The goal is to raise $12,000, and the pizzas can be ordered for dine-in, take-out or delivery. Show your significant other your compassionate side with this fun, creative idea that makes a great surprise.

Test Your Trust
The Fleetway (fleetwayfun.com) entertainment centre on Oxford Street West has an indoor 40-foot wall that resembles a natural rock wall. There are eight climbing stations on the wall, with varying degrees of difficulty, and trained professionals are always close by to provide assistance when necessary. After conquering the wall, visitors can continue the fun with bowling, mini golf and a stop at Dairy Queen. Another awesome 40-foot rock climbing wall can be found at East Park's (eastparkgolf.com) indoor entertainment and educational centre.

Wine and Dine
Carolinian Winery & Eatery, 4823 Dundas St.,Thorndale, ON
Cozy up at this newly renovated restaurant just 10 minutes from Fanshawe. Their Valentine's Day dinner features your choice of Lobster Bisque or Carolinian Greens for starters, Braised Beef with Lobster or Chicken stuffed with spinach and mushrooms for mains and Chocolate Lovers' Cake for dessert. It's $65 per couple, and reservations are available between 5 and 9 p.m.; for more info head to carolinianwinery.ca.

Saffron's, On campus
You can head over to A building on campus to check out Saffron's, one of Fanshawe's hidden gems. Saffron's is serving up a Valentine's Day dinner filled with everything from Sweet Potato Bisque to a Salmon Tornado to Crme Brle! Dinner is served from 5 to 8 p.m and is $50 per couple. Their dress code is business casual, so don't forget to spruce up your look for this dinner date.

Low on cash? You can even put it on your student meal plan card (don't tell your date)!

Blu Duby, 32 Covent Market Pl.
Looking for something new? Blu Duby is one of downtown London's newest eateries and offers a modern, romantic atmosphere. Their large Valentine's Day fixed-price menu has Asian, Continental and Mediterranean influences — I would personally recommend the crispy pork spring rolls to start! The meal is $40 per person and there will be various seating times on V-Day.

Laugh Together
They say laughter is the key to one's heart, so have a fun-filled night that's on the lighter side with a Valentine's Day dinner and show at Yuk Yuk's. From February 14 to 16, Yuk Yuk's is hosting "A Funny Little Valentine" featuring Chris Quigley and special guest Julien Dionne. Choose from three different apps, main courses and desserts when deciding on your meal. Tickets are $35 per person; go to tinyurl.com/funnyval2013 for more information.

Put Your Love on Ice
The City of London has a longstanding tradition of turning the area in front of the bandstand in Victoria Park into a free public skating rink as long as the temperatures are cold enough. People of all ages and skill levels come to this beautiful rink to enjoy the fun of skating and the pleasures of the great outdoors.

The Covent Garden Market is another great (and free!) outdoor skating spot. When you're tired out from skating, you can head into the market and enjoy a snack from one of the many food vendors within.

Get a Room
If you live with roommates and finding a second of privacy is like finding $20 in last year's winter coat, this may be a good idea for you. London has several nice hotels and quaint bed and breakfasts for you to try out — check out tinyurl.com/ldnbnb2013 for some ideas. If you're hoping not to break the bank, try sites like Groupon or Teambuy to score a cheap hotel room. Another option is using hotwire.com, a service that offers hotels at up to 50 per cent off. The catch is, you can choose the star-rating of your hotel, but won't know which hotel you get until you've paid. (Note: A hotel room is probably not a good idea for a first date.)

Back to Romance
A great way to unwind, relax and de-stress with your date is a couple's massage. Many spas in London have special couple's massages where you each get a massage in the same room. Sheer Elegance spa on Adelaide Street has a couples massage for $130.

Be a Kid Again
As adults, snow seems like a nuisance — you have to shovel it, scrape it off your car and trudge through it every day. Go back to when you were a kid and snow was a ton of fun. Spend a snowy day with your sweetie, snuggling up in a snow fort, making snow angels and writing cute messages in the snow with your tracks.
