Who says you have to stick to your regular city haunts to get your romance going? For a new experience in that department, here are some surprisingly romantic activities that are worth a short trip outside the city.

The Surf and Turf

Oasis Surf Brossard Indoor Surfing

The Quartier Dix-30 shopping mall in Brossard is home to Oasis Surf, Canada’s first indoor surf spot, which doubles as a restaurant. You and your bae can take turns taking major spills into the wave pool and then partake in some lobster to the sounds of the evening DJ.

Romance factor: Laugh your butts off at each other as you incessantly wipe out. (Don’t forget the waterproof camera!)
Distance from Montreal: 20 minutes.

The Salt Shaker

La Salière La Prairie Salt Spa

Quebec has tons of beautiful and relaxing spas, so it’s easy to become blasé about them. Why not try a more offbeat experience with La Salière, a spa with a salt air microclimate to give your couples’ spa day that extra kick of flavour.

Romance factor: Are you both feeling all sinusey and stressed from overwork? None too sexy! Rejuvenate together with some salt therapy to let it all flow out.
Distance from Montreal: 20 minutes.

The Beer Museum

Every summer, Chambly attracts throngs of visitors to its Bières et Saveurs beer festival, so Chambly-ites indeed know their pints. Local brewery Bedondaines et Bedons Ronds celebrates the beer gut with tours of their craft workshop and a collection of over 26,000 beer-related items.

Romance factor: Get the true Montreal romance experience by enjoying some brews on a comfy terrace or snuggling together inside by the light of a thousand beer bottles.
Distance from Montreal: 30 minutes.

Chocolate, Tea, and Golf in One

La Cabosse D'Or Otterburn Park Chocolate Shop

Belgian-inspired chocolate shop La Cabosse d’Or is literally filled to the brim with mountains of chocolate created in the European tradition. A tea salon, gardens, and mini-putt during the summer add dashes of whimsy to this chocolate wonderland.

Romance factor: Sip a steaming cup of tea or hot chocolate served by costumed wait staff. You can then hold hands and watch your waists expand as you partake in the gelato, fudge, and pralines.
Distance from Montreal: 40 minutes.

The gourmet food, bucolic settings, and comfy suites are a sure recipe for some weekend passion.

Romance factor: Farm fresh fare and a rustic charm make for a free-spirited weekend to… just get it on.
