If you've always dreamed of a Parisian honeymoon but can't afford it, check out Montreal — which many say is the next best thing to Paris. This city is the largest city in the province of Quebec, and since French is the city's official language, you'll feel like you're light-years away from home.
Montreal also boasts an incredible public transportation system, so you can get anywhere in the city without the need of a car or expensive cab. Although it might cost a bit more, you might want to stay in Vieux Montreal, or Old Montreal, because you'll be within walking distance of some of the biggest attractions, like Notre-Dame Basilica, the St. Lawrence riverfront and the Marche Bonsecours market (which was recently renovated and features tons of boutiques, restaurants and bars). You can also stay at the Intercontinental, right in the Vieux Montreal, for less than $150 US a night (depending on the time of year you visit).
What makes Montreal such a great honeymoon spot for frugal couples is the fact that most of the best attractions are free! The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, for example, costs nothing to get in. Plus, if you travel from the end of June to the beginning of July, you can catch the world famous Jazz Festival, which has many free concerts as well as those you can buy tickets for.
