21 Awesome Things You Should Do In Montreal This Summer If You Haven't Already

Let's all join in on a collective sigh; it's August already, and the dreaded end of summer is approaching at an alarming rate. And trust me, I hate to be the person to say that, because with school looming on the horizon, no one wishes that summer would last forever more than me.

But the truth is that the month of August is just beginning, and we should all be more motivated than ever to enjoy this beautiful season and all it has to offer. Summer in Montreal is always eventful, and although you might feel like all of the major festivals and attractions are long gone, there are still tons of awesome things left to do in the city.

So it's time to make the most of what we have left, and wholeheartedly embrace the last month of summer. Whether it's something as simple as sipping coffee on a terrasse, or partying hard at a music event, don't let the imminent end stop you from participating in all of the fun and exciting summer experiences Montreal has to offer.
