This past week, I treated my fiance to a small little weekend trip to Montreal, Quebec for our 6 year anniversary! We were both really excited as we have been saving money for quite a while and not really enjoying our time together or even life in general. We both live in Ontario and it was about a 5 hour drive but a good time to enjoy the scenery and really talk about life and eat some junk food together!
Let me just say Montreal is a beautiful place! The old architecture and atmosphere makes you feel like you are in Europe. There are many churches and museums to visit and lots of fine dining and shopping available.
As you can see from the picture, Montreal really is a beautiful place. I spent way more this weekend then I have in a very long time for anything. Here is the breakdown of what I spent on our 3 day stay:
Hotel (Hotel Place D’arms) – $500 – This was pretty expensive but man was it ever a beautiful hotel. Very elegant and the most comfortable bed in the world. Plus there was a great continental breakfast and free wine and cheese in the evening.
Food – $125 – I paid for some of our dining out choices and my fiance paid others. We went to one fancy restaurant and some cafes and smaller deli’s.
Gas – $70– I love my car! I made it to drive all the way to Montreal and back, over 10 hours of driving for just $70.00 I was worried gas would have been much more pricier but that was not the case at all. My Fiance paid (alot!) for the gas for this trip.
Activities – $100– Most money was spent shopping but also on visiting old historic churches and museums. There is no shortage of historic buildings in Montreal.
Overall we spent roughly $800 for this weekend trip.
This is a great deal of money but it’s an extreme rarity for us to do this. It was well worth it and I would recommend Montreal to anyone!
