Winter has arrived and suddenly all we want to do is lay around in our apartments with our S.O., but there are so many fun Montreal winter date ideas that there's no reason for you to stay inside!\nGet some inspiration for your next snowy date below!\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nYou don’t need to break the bank to have an amazing date. Montreal is a city that is filled with amazing and affordable things to do. And, many forget that during the winter the city is still hopping with date options. This is why MTL Blog has created a list of the perfect Montreal winter date ideas that cost under $20.\nThe dating game can get pretty expensive and at the end of the day, finding love isn’t about that. Remember, relationships are not based on the price of a date. A date is special because of the time shared between two people - the laughs had and little moments are what ends up being remembered.\nJust because you're on a budget, as most of us are, doesn’t mean that you can’t go on a memorable date - especially in a city like Montreal!\nWinter dates can sometimes be tricky but have no fear because MTL Blog is here. This list is jam-packed with adorable, affordable and unique dates to be had all throughout the city during the dreaded, cold months of winter. And, the best part of all, they are all under $20.\nWe all know the struggle that comes with being an "adult," the bills, the groceries, rent... But, put those stresses aside for a night and take some special out for a fun evening on the town!\nPig Out At Lloydies\nWhere: 66 Rue Saint Viateur O & 2145 Rue Crescent\nView this post on Instagram *taste buds triggered. A post shared by Lloydie’s (@lloydies.mtl) on Nov 25, 2019 at 1:45pm PST\nLloydies is one of those restaurants that you become addicted to instantly. The Caribbean flavours combined with the warm atmosphere and cool staff allow eaters to feel like they're in an authentic Jamaican restaurant.\nFrom the $3 Jamaican patties and $4 mac and cheese to the $12 jerk chicken served with sides and the mouthwatering chicken wings, there is truly no other place in the city that does Caribbean food quite like them.\nGet Late Night Bagels\nView this post on Instagram Bagel joy 😄 . 📷 @thecubancarrie A post shared by St-Viateur Bagel (@stviateurbagel) on Sep 2, 2019 at 2:59am PDT\nBagels are a Montreal staple and two locations have been in competition since what feels like the beginning of time. Whether you like St.Viateur or Fairmount, one thing is certain, bagels in our city are awesome.\nOne of my favourite dates is going to get fresh bagels and some cream cheese and getting to know someone over something so affordable and delicious. This simple date gives you and your companion an opportunity to connect with one another while eating a fresh warm bagel.\nIs there anything more Montreal than having a bagel date at 2 a.m.? I don’t think so!\nGo To A Shooting Range\nWhere: 5186 Queen Mary; Tir du Soleil\nView this post on Instagram Couples that shoot and have fun together, stay together! 🥰 Bring your partner for a special experience at Tir Du Soleil! A post shared by Tir du soleil 🌞 (@tirdusoleil) on Jun 12, 2019 at 11:15am PDT\nTir du Soleil is a great spot in Montreal where willing participants have the chance to shoot Air Rifles from a 6-meter shooting range.\nShooters get unlimited pellets and there are interactive targets to aim for.\nYou can book a spot for 30 minutes, which will cost you $9.95 or if you want to ball out, you can book for the hour, which will put you back $14.95.\nThis may not seem like the most romantic date, but I can assure you that it is really fun, which is what makes a good date, right?\nWatch Planes Land At Louks Brewery\nWhere: 777 Avenue Lajoie; Louks Brewery\nView this post on Instagram The woman who brewed the Blanche 🙋🏻♀️ She always hides behind her computer, but we got her to get her hands dirty!💪🏼 Cheers to women brewers!💃🏻💁🏻♀️ La femme qui a brassé la Blanche !

Not only will it get you out of the cold, but it will allow you to connect with one another through art.\nYou can learn a lot about a person by roaming through a museum with them. For example, you can find out about their taste in art, their knowledge of history (or lack of), and if they are a slow walker or a fast walker, which may not seem important at first but trust me in the long run it is!\nNot only is this an awesome date idea, but it's also affordable. The prices vary based on which museum you go to. If you're a student, you will always get a student discount, which is always helpful!\nHop On A Trampoline\nWhere: 77 Brunswick Blvd; Sky Tag\nView this post on Instagram Over 10,000 square feet of trampolines space💪 Let's get to Jumping 🦘 A post shared by SKYTAG (@skytag_montreal) on Sep 13, 2019 at 11:12am PDT\nOne ingredient that always seems to make for an awesome date is doing something that brings out your inner child - and trampolines have a way of doing that.\nSky Tag is a destination that will give any adult the illusion of being a kid again. If you want to show off your trampoline skills, it will cost you $10.99 for 30 minutes and $14.99 for 60 minutes.\nThis inexpensive and amusing date will give you and your guest the chance to let go of all your worries and literally jump into each other's arms.\nVisit The Stunning St. Joseph's Oratory\nView this post on Instagram 📷 @ericbranover A post shared by Jordan Bieri (@jordanbieri) on Nov 6, 2019 at 5:36pm PST\nSt. Joseph's Oratory is one of my favourite places in all of Montreal. The majestic aura of this building leaves you feeling filled with joy.\nYou don’t need to be Catholic or believe in religion to enjoy the beauty of this Montreal monument.\nThere is even a secret garden that will blow your mind. The only problem is that it is a bit of a walk.

My husband filled up a thermos with hot chocolate and the two of us, reconnected to the kid living inside of us while building a snowman.\nOutside the building, there were a few snowball fights, a couple of snow angels made and a ton of snowy kisses shared. Yes, it was as perfect as it sounds, and it cost almost nothing.\nTry Some Of Cinko's Dishes\nWhere: 1641 Rue St-Denis\nView this post on Instagram Nous en sommes aux derniers préparatifs pour recevoir les premiers adeptes du 5 à 7.
