11 Unique Montreal Valentine's Day Date Ideas That Will Actually Be Fun

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and I come today with the gift of some unique Montreal Valentine's Day date ideas that will get you thinking outside the classic dinner date box. Of course, there are countless amazing restaurants in Montreal that will absolutely do the trick, particularly if your favourite human is a foodie.

But if you and your love like to think outside the box, here are a couple ideas that provide a great opportunity to get romantic and also get a little fun in. 

There's a little something for everyone, from couples yoga to a massage workshop for two. Or, maybe you'd like to go to a Southern cake tasting, or traipse around Mount Royal on snowshoes?

Whatever kind of couple you are (or hope to be), there's something here to at least spark your imagination and get the cogs in your head spinning.

You've got just less than a month before the big day, so planning now means you won't miss out on any of the awesome activities below.

And an added bonus: not all of these activities are on Valentine's Day proper. Many take place on the following weekend, the 15 or 16.

This means if you and your boo are foodies who also like a little adventure, you can still have an awesome Valentine's Day dinner before heading to one of these fun activities on the weekend.
