Most Romantic Newmarket

Most Romantic Newmarket

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! ‘Amour’ is in the air and lucky for us, we are in one of the most romantic communities in Canada! That’s right: in a 2017 list produced by Amazon.ca, Newmarket was named the 20th “most romantic” place in the country. The ranking was based on online purchases of items such as romance novels, relationship books, romantic comedies, jewelry and more. It seems that our Town simply loves to love!

Although the official title of “most romantic” was based solely on sales, there’s no denying that Newmarket is quite the Town for love. Here’s why:

 1.    It’s Picturesque - did you know a number of Hallmark and Harlequin movies which appear on W Network are filmed here for our scenic views?

2.   It’s Full of great date spots - during an episode of Season 1 of The Bachelorette Canada, Jasmine and Mikhel went to Stardust Drive-In!

3.    It’s The perfect place to write your unique love story - and we know from Amazon, those stories are definitely appreciated here!

 So, you may ask, how would that Newmarket-centric love story be written exactly?

Well, Once Upon a Time in a magical Town…

Chapter One: The Meet Cute

Past a sea of twinkling lights lining the pathways at Riverwalk Commons, in the crisp winter air, two strangers spot each other under the stars while skating on our outdoor rink. They smile, introduce themselves and head over The Ice Lounge where they sit in cool chairs in front of a faux fire and chat.
