Looking for a unique date night? Take a lesson from Chris Williams, from Real Man Travels, who organized a group date night rafting down the Grand River in Paris. This looks like WAY more fun than dinner and a movie!

The sun was just starting to set as we watched a couple of fisherman try their luck near the bottom of the modest waterfall. I could still taste the delicious barbecue sauce from my tender rack of ribs I enjoyed at renowned Camp 31 rib house earlier. Our group had been anticipating date night for quite a while, finally we were standing on the banks of the Grand River in Paris, Ontario. Our guide, Nick from Grand River Rafting, approached us with a smile, he knew right away that he had a special group on his hands and sensed that the bond was strong. He was right and we were starving for a romantic adventure.
