Montreal is a city that is full of romance, so naturally, it makes for a great place to be going on dates. One major misconception about dating in Montreal is that you need to break the bank to have a good time. Cheap date ideas in Montreal are all around you — at any time of year. And in the fall, they just get a lot more colourful!

Being an "adult" comes with its fair share of issues, including paying bills and doing groceries, which tends to leave us with little to no money to spend on romance. 

However, if you can manage to save up $20, we at MTL Blog can help you with a date that's sure to be a memorable one. 

At the end of the day, dating isn't about going to fancy restaurants, dating is about finding someone special to experience life with.

And, the following dates will get you closer to finding that person. 

Just because you are on a tight budget, which many of us are, doesn't mean that you can't go on an epic and awesome date.

Go Bowling 

Where: 6510, rue St Jacques, Montreal, QC; Quilles G Plus

There's something about bowling that I just love, especially when it comes to dates. This is a fun and affordable activity to do that'll bring out the competitive side in both of you! 


Visit The Biodome 

Where: 4777, ave. Pierre-de Coubertin, Montreal, QC

The Biodome has recently re-opened and it's without a doubt one of the sweetest date spots in the city.

A ticket for an adult will run you up a little over $16 so if you are paying for your date also, it may cost you more than $20. But, totally worth it.


Watch Planes Land & Drink Hot Chocolate 

Where: Avenue Jenkins; Parc Jacques-de-Lesseps

There's something incredibly romantic about cuddling up under a blanket and watching the planes land, especially when there's hot chocolate involved.

Try Mini Put

Where: 1259, rue Guy, Montreal, QC; Putting Edge

Mini putting is fun no matter what age you are. It's about $12 per person so you can have a great time at a small price.

Plus, Putting Edge makes for an extremely colourful date.


Watch The Sun Set

Have you ever looked up in the sky to admire the gorgeous sunsets that we see in and around our city? 

Well, imagine doing that with a date — so romantic and so affordable! Just pack some snacks, maybe some coffee and wine, and enjoy the beauty that nature is providing you with.

Hit Up An Arcade

Where: 2031, rue Saint-Denis, Montreal, QC; Arcade MTL

Arcades are one of those spots that we tend to forget about, however, they are always a lot of fun.

Going on a date to the arcade will bring out the child in both of you and have you feeling, young, wild, and free.


Go Apple Picking

Where: 2495, blvd. Perrot, Notre-Dame-de-l'Île-Perrot, QC; Quinn Farm

Not only is apple picking one of the most picturesque activities you can be part of, but it's also incredibly affordable. 

And, on the next date, you guys can make apple pies together!
