Which is chill, except that you and bae shouldn't have to put aside your special alone time because of your financial situations. Luckily, in Montreal, we have tons of super fun things that you guys can do together... for absolutely no money.

1. Are you and your significant other into VR? Then check out the Phi Centre's Virtual Reality garden, free admission until November 20.

7. Then check out any one of these romantic spots to watch airplanes land and take off.

8. Love reading? Bring bae on a romantic shopping date to this store, and pick up a free book or two (or seven).

9. Chocolate lovers, get yourselves to this free chocolate festival, taking place this winter.

10. If you and bae are gutsy AF, try exploring some of these (allegedly) haunted Montreal locations. (At your own risk).

11. Grab your bikes and go for a romantic couple's ride from the Lachine Canal, to Griffintown, to the Old Port.
