Compared to winter, summer is so short that I feel like I don't enjoy it enough! With work and my school courses, I feel as if I always need to make plans, especially because I want to spend as much time as I can with my boyfriend! This is why I have come up with a list of great summer activities to do as couples.


1. The botanical Garden:


Did you know that this is considered to be one of the most important botanical gardens in the world, therefore making it a perfect place for a date! There is always something new happening and the exhibitions and gardens are absolutely gorgeous!

2. Picnics:


Most of the time couples go to restaurants, but sometimes you get tired of it. Especially when you don't have an idea of where you want to go or you don't want to eat the same kind of food as your boyfriend! In this case, a great alternative is to have a picnic because you can bring different types of foods while spending quality time together!

3. Going to the beach:


There is nothing better than going to the beach during the summer. You can relax and take a break from your usual routine. I love going to the beach with my boyfriend, it provides me with a perfect mix of fun and relaxation. Use this as a great opportunity to disconnect from your cell phone and to share quality alone time with your boyfriend! Interested but don't know where to go?

Are you and your boyfriend a movie lover? If yes, then the The 'Cine-Parc' is perfect for you guys! The Cine-Parc is 'drive-in' movie theatre where you can enjoy watching a movie outdoors from the comfort of  your car!



5. Old Port:


Spending time together at the old port is very nice, especially during the summer where there is so much happening there. You can find plenty of craftsmen/artisans, some small shows on the street and don't forget about all the amazing restaurants that there are to discover! You can also find artists that can draw funny pictures of you and your boyfriend, which can create beautiful memories!

6. Fireworks:


I don't know about you guys, but how romantic would it be to spend the evening with your boyfriend watching fireworks?

You can go to La ronde or choose a spot close enough to see the fireworks on the weekends for free. Remember, which ever spot you chose, as long as you are together with your boyfriend you will enjoy it!



7. Go for a walk on Mont-Royal:


Taking a walk with your boyfriend is always romantic and a good moment to relax and just enjoy the sun and the act of being outside.

8. Camping:


I don't know what I love more, going camping or planning to go on a camping trip? I wasn't much of a camper when I was single, but I have to tell you that I really enjoy it now. It's always a great time and we help each other out with setting up the tent and the cooking. In my opinion, the best thing about camping is being far away from the city, your work and your cell phone! Click here for a list of 10 summer campgrounds close to Montreal!



9. Road Trip:


Couple road trips are always nice and funny, because spending all that time in the car with your significant other will bring out another side to the person you love. It's always nice to share different and new experiences together.



10. Bike Ride:


Biking is one of my favorite activities, and is also one that my boyfriend and I enjoy doing together! We always have fun with our bikes, whether we are racing each other or just exploring new areas in the city!
