Now, don't get me wrong, there's nothing bad about notre centre-ville but if you've lived here for an extended period, you know that downtown is way overplayed and overhyped. It can sometimes be a struggle to find something else to do besides getting drinks, which is why we've made a list of 10 unique things to do in Montreal - so you don't have to settle for spending your night with expensive cocktails and loud music.\nFor tourists, that struggle is even more real because your average guidebook suggests the run-of-the-mill activities more often than not. Again, there's nothing wrong with getting drinks at a downtown bar, but sometimes, you want more.\nTo be honest, you're kind of missing out if all you're doing is drinking your night away. Montreal has so many unique and exciting experiences that it's a shame if you're not taking full advantage. Whether alone you do it alone or with friends, change is a good thing!\nSo instead of spending your hard-earned money on a hangover, why not spend it on an experience instead?\nMTL Blog has curated a list of some of the most unique things to do in Montreal if you're over getting drinks!
