Check out the Montreal Planetarium for an indoor holiday date
Where: 4801 Pierre De Coubertin Avenue // Hochelaga
When: Tuesday - Saturday 10AM - 8PM, Sunday 9AM - 5PM
Whenever I envision a classic date-night scene I picture a couple holding hands staring up at the stars talking and getting to know each other. Well, it's cold in the winter, so why not visit the Planetarium for the same experience - but indoors. Check out their website for more info!
Visit the iconic and beautifully illuminated Notre Dame Basilica in the Old Port
Where: 110 Notre Dame Street Ouest // Old Port
When: Throughout November and December // Show begins at 6PM
To celebrate the 375th birthday of Montreal the city has invested in illuminating some of the iconic structures and historical monuments that define Montreal history. The Notre-Dame Basilica is one of them and will be illuminated for the rest of the winter. Shows every evening, buy your tickets now!
Take a short drive to Saint-Sauver for a day of snow tubing!
Where: 440 Chemin Avila // Piedmont Quebec
When: Sunday - Thursday 9AM - 5PM, Friday - Saturday 9AM - 10PM
Snow tubing is quite possibly the most exhilarating outdoor winter activity. Perfect date idea, too. It's also great for all you lazy bones out there because there is a lift that brings you and your tube back up the hill. Just sit back and enjoy the slide.
Head outside of the city to Parc Omega to catch a glimpse of beautiful Quebec Wildlife
Where: 399 Route 323 North // Montebello, Quebec
When: Open Monday - Sunday // 10AM - 4PM
Can you think of anything more magical than an unplanned deer sighting? Hmm, don't think so, right!? Parc Omega is just a short distance outside of Montreal and is a nature and wildlife adventure where all kinds of animals can be spotted. You can fork out a bit of extra cash and rent a cabin and stay overnight. Pure romance.
For those crafty and artsy couples out there, have a little at home DIY Christmas gift session
Where: Comfort of your own home!
You don't need to spend a lot of money to give a thoughtful gift. In fact, I would argue that the less you spend the better. Nothing says "I care" like crafting a gift with your own two hands. Why not make a date out of it, go shopping for supplies and spend an afternoon crafting away.
