As the hot season approaches, we're left wondering—how many classic things to do in Montreal during the summer do you need to do to officially qualify as a true Montrealer?\nMTL Blog came up with this amazing listmous test (see what I did there?)

Don't forget to try the world-famous orange drink!\n\nTake A Day Trip To Mont-Tremblant\n View this post on Instagram A post shared by Stacy Alexandre (@iamstacy_lef08)\nIt's arguably better to visit Quebec's most popular mountain in the summer because there are way more activities you can actually do.
