I don't know if it's because everyone just looks better in the sunshine, or if it's because of the abundance of romantic activities that you can enjoy in the city during the summer.\nThere are indeed a ton of fun date ideas that you can only partake in during the summer months. Let us remember that summer is woefully short in Quebec, so pick a few of these ideas and go do them, like, right now.\nIt doesn't matter whether you've been in a relationship for years or if you're just about to ask someone out on a first date: there's something in here for everyone.\nRent A Paddleboat\nWhere: Natrel Bassin,\nBoat rides are a super romantic idea, as long as the boat doesn't tip over à la Little Mermaid.
