Ah, summer. Nothing quite like long summer days with love and heat feeling the air. And with so many couples having either spent months quarantining apart or months cooped up together, we're all ready to do a little summer exploring with our S.O. So, we compiled a list of Montreal summer date ideas for the lovers in the city.\nFor many people, summer is for fun plans and cute date ideas. And this year, we definitely need it.\nAlthough it feels like we wait so long for long days and warm weather, before we look around, summer will be over!\nNow, if you're like me, you have so many things you want to do, but summer seems to get away from you.\nAnd although my 2020 New Year's resolution to stay organized and write down my to-do lists has gotten a late start (the first six months of 2020 are a write off anyway), no better time to start writing down ideas than now.\nWhile we all love a spontaneous adventure, sometimes you just gotta make sure you gotta plan ahead to make sure you get to everything.\nGo To Gibeau Orange Julep\nView this post on Instagram Happy birthday to my big boo boo @katya_nud A post shared by Riel.me (@djriel) on Jun 11, 2020 at 1:42pm PDT\nStarting off with a summer classic, take a trip to Montreal's famous big orange.
