When you and your bae are in a long term relationship, you get pretty bored of Montreal and doing the same things over and over again. Instead, you end up watching Netflix and arguing over what you should do. Well, instead of focusing on Montreal, I suggest taking a spontaneous romantic getaway!
The destinations below each host their own specific activity and you can choose how far you are willing to drive. Of course each destination is 514% worth the drive, but if you and your bae are on a time budget then not to worry.
