Be my Valentine!

So, Montreal, Winter is (has been) here, and of course with it brings the best times to cuddle up in, and around our fine city of romance. As usual, Montreal is a mecca of entertainment, events, and cool things to do all the time. Valentine’s Day is no exception.

Stick with us here at Best Kept Montreal , and follow with me through  my suggestions to get out there with your better half and enjoy the more romantic side of Montreal this Valentine’s Day!

Saint-Valentin à l’Observatoire

Valentine's Day

Montreal is a city full of immense beauty. Walking the city streets it’s easy to see we are a few steps ahead of the rest of the country. Beauty in  our local population. Beauty in our fashion trends. More beauty to be found in the architecture and design of the different Montreal boroughs.

Overlooking the luminous intensity of the city is a great way to demonstrate your unique point of view. This Valentine’s Day – bring your loved one to Au Sommet Place Ville Marie and take in the breath taking views of fabulous Montreal!

Entrance fee: 2 for 1 (Adult: 19 $) buy at the Observatory.

February 14th – 10 am – 10 pm

Nordic Baths – Floating Spa

Okay – here is another no-brainer. Who doesn’t love a good spa day? The only thing better than a spa day, is a totally unique spa atmosphere. It may be cold outside, Montreal, but don’t let that stop you! I guarantee this activity will bring you lots of wonderful, romantic memories.

No iceberg ahead other than the icy Saint-Laurent river, but you can turn on the steam! Check out Bota Bota this Valentine’s Day!

Nordic baths $39 – per person.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day!

Love the taste of award-winning beers, like the Farnham Ale? If so, I highly suggest considering a get away from the Montreal limits.

One hour and 30 minutes from Montreal to the Eastern townships, the micro-breweries have been mushrooming along the way. It’s cozy, it’s romantic, and very authentically Canadian to hole up with your babe in this winter cabin atmosphere – and indulge in the brews!

$6+ per pint.

Check out the different micro-breweries in the Eastern Townships now!

There you have it, Montreal! A small round-up of different and unique ways to get your romance on this Valentine’s Day!
