Montreal is a city that is full of romance, so naturally, it makes for a great place for going on dates.
One major misconception about dating in Montreal though is that you need to break the bank to have a good time. But 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!
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.

According to evenko, the event promoter, 12 of the world's best monster trucks will be competing on an all-new track. The event features side-by-side races, freestyle motocross, ATV & SXS races, and a backflip contest.
The event was initially set to take place on November 13, but it has been postponed until April 9 due to public health restrictions.
If you already have a ticket, hold onto it because it'll still be valid. If you don't, a spokesperson told MTL Blog there are still more tickets available.
Doors open at 5 p.m. for a pit party where you can meet the drivers and get photos with the monster trucks.
Espace pour la vie and Mayor Valérie Plante announced Thursday that Montreal's Biosphere would reopen to the public as of Friday, August 13.
The structure, which houses an environment museum, was built as the American Pavilion for Expo 67.
In a Facebook post, the mayor announced that to mark the occasion, admission to the museum would be free all weekend.
Earlier in the year, the Governments of Canada and Quebec announced that control of the museum would be transferred to the City of Montreal and that it would become Espace pour la vie's fifth site, joining the Botanical Garden, Biodôme, Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium and the Insectarium.
