Some boyfriends can really be grandpas, but hey, what's wrong with that? Some people like the cozy, calm option rather than jumping off a cliff or staying up all night.
It can be really challenging getting your guy out of the house if he is the lazy type. The comfort that the bed or the TV brings can just be too much sometimes. But come on, your needs matter too.
With this list, you can save your relationship with the best of both worlds. Whether you want to hang out locally in Montreal or take a bit of a trip around Quebec, you'll be more than set. He'll get to stay chilled out and you get to get up off the couch and go on a little adventure.

Hopefully, you've all been to this beautiful establishment before, but if not it's definitely time. At Céramic Café, you can actually paint your own ceramics! Whether it's a plate or a ceramic owl, you can paint it whatever way you want. You can even make it cuter by making ceramics for each other.
28. Look at the stars at the Planetarium
This date is super cute because you can actually gaze up at the stars in the arms of your loved one.

Personally, the Montreal Planetarium is one of my favorite places.

Lusk Cave in Gatineau has some really crazy underground marble caves! You can take a 4-hour tour to check out Quebec's underground nature scene. You will probably get a little bit wet, but is that really a problem?
14. Do some painting
Whether you want to do something artsy or convenient, painting is the way to go. Really, it could go either way. You could pick up some cheap canvases or move around your furniture and give your living room a new look. Throwing paint at your boyfriend is surprisingly fun. Who cares if you get dirty?
13. Go on a ghost tour
Going on a ghost tour is a great excuse to lean on your boyfriend for safety (even though he'll probably be the one who is afraid). Haunted Montreal Ghost Tours will take you to the creepiest and most haunted places in Montreal. Who doesn't love storytelling accompanied by a walking tour?

Festivals and amusements parks are great places to hop on a ferris wheel. But luckily, La Grande Roue de Montreal at the Old Port will give you more than a view of children running around. Check out the beautiful Montreal skyline alongside your boyfriend and relax midair.
9. Tube down a lazy river

Low lighting, jazz music, red wine, what could be more romantic? Upstairs is a great spot to check out some live performances and it's right smack in the middle of downtown so you'll have an easy time getting there.

What a great way to chill out with your boyfriend. Making dinner together is already super romantic, but ditching the furniture and getting comfortable on the floor makes it even better. Set up a blanket, put on some music and enjoy your meal!
