Alongside the many festivals, parties, and major events the summer season brings, by virtue of the warm weather, we are afforded so many awesome opportunities that we just don't have when the seasons change.

Whether it's as simple as sitting on your balcony in the evening, or as luxurious as relaxing at an outdoor spa, we should be constantly showing our appreciation for this great weather. By participating in activities that can only happen in the summer, you'll ensure you have no regrets once it's time to layer up in sweaters and coats. So slap on that sunscreen, because a Montreal summer comes and goes pretty fast - you don't want to miss it.
