You're about to give The Notebook a run for its money.

Spring is almost here, which means it's almost time for cute outfits, outdoor festivities, and a ton of adorable dates to take part in. Living in Montreal, we know there is no lack of romance within our city. We truly have some of the cheesiest options for things to do with your S.O., so much so that they can make us think we're living out a Nicholas Sparks novel.

Dating is a lot of fun. Regardless of your age or relationship status, going on dates is (almost) always a good time. Dating is a way of spending time with that special person and going to do something you perhaps would not normally do by yourself.

I firmly believe that you should never stop dating, even if you have been married for 50 plus years. And, the following activities are ideal for anyone looking to add that romance novel spark back into their love life.

From romantic picnics to exploring stunning gardens, our city is stocked with some wonderful things to do come spring.
