It's no question that summer is a favourite season in Montreal — and with good reason. Once the sun arrives, the city comes alive with plenty of sights to see, things to do and places to go.
Summer 2021 promises to be especially fun because, after a year and a bit of being cooped up indoors, what could be better than soaking up Montreal at its finest?
The sunny season is also known for another Montreal tradition: moving day. With July 1 being when most new leases begin, the end of June is a flurry of activity as people move out and move in all across the city.
Whether you're new to Montreal, are just moving across town, or are simply looking for ways to make this summer an unforgettable one, there are tons of ways to appreciate Montreal.
Pepsi® can help you do just that with the Drink Pepsi Get Summer Stuff contest. With weekly chances to win $10,000 plus instant prizes like barbecue grills, bicycles, paddleboards and merch, this contest is just what this Montreal summer calls for.
Look out for specially marked Pepsi cola products, and get ready to make the most of summer with these seven activities that prove why living in Montreal is the best.
Why You Need To Do It: With over 3,000 kilometres of bikeways, the island and Greater Montreal are a cyclist's dream. Not only is biking a fun, efficient and eco-friendly way to get from point A to point B, but it's also a great way to explore the city.
If you're in need of wheels, you might want to try your luck with the Drink Pepsi Get Summer Stuff contest. Pepsi is giving away a new bicycle along with loads of other instant prizes.
Why You Need To Do It: If you think you need to be beachside to paddleboard, think again. The still waters of Parc Jean-Drapeau make it the perfect place to go for a paddle.
Whether you're a seasoned pro or a beginner, getting on the water is a fun way to discover Montreal and maybe even meet new people.
Why You Need To Do It: Mont-Royal remains one of the city's most popular destinations. Not only is it accessible via walking or transit, but it also offers hiking trails that are suitable for all levels.
Pack that knapsack (like the one you could win with Drink Pepsi Get Summer Stuff contest) with all your favourite hiking goodies. Don't forget your camera because you're going to want to take a pic or two once you reach the top.
Why You Need To Do It: Montreal has some of the best museums in the world. No matter what you're interested in, there is an exhibition that will pique your interests (and get you out of the summer heat).
The recently refurbished Biodôme houses five diverse ecosystems where you can see everything from penguins to exotic birds. The city's history museum, Pointe-à-Callière, has exhibits spanning First Nations history to the modern day. And for art buffs, the Musée d'art contemporain de Montreal showcases works from local and international artists.
Why You Need To Do It: Summers are made for grilling and chilling. Whether you're a fan of a classic steak, some grilled chicken breast or know the perfect recipe for seared aubergine, there's always something delicious to sink your teeth into at a barbecue.
While you don't necessarily need a backyard to have a barbecue, you do need a grill. Fortunately, Pepsi is giving some away with their Drink Pepsi Get Summer Stuff contest.
Why You Need To Do It: Montreal has an iconic arts and culture scene. Wandering around the city and exploring street art is a feast for the eyes and a great way to get to know the place.
Boulevard St-Laurent, in particular, is known for its murals and graffiti. There's lots of art to be found in Quartier des Spectacles, too. Whether you're solo or with your crew, this is one way to have a picturesque summer.
However you find yourself celebrating summer in Montreal, if you pick up a Pepsi, you might just win some cool prizes like a barbecue grill, bikes, paddleboards or tons of merch. Not to mention a chance to win a weekly prize of $10,000 — which could help you deck out new digs.

This past week, Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé announced that hockey games in Montreal would allow 3,500 spectators indoors, up from the previous 2,500-person limit. However, that still pales in comparison to the 18,000 spectators filling the stands at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Even though the energy at the Bell Center was palpable, and the Habs clinched the win, the difference in ambiance was noticeable during last night's game — the first home game of the series.
In Vegas, the T-Mobile Arena was full for the first two games of the playoffs.
In Montreal, 15 sections were closed to the public and covered by tarps with advertisements.
No social distancing is required for games in Las Vegas, where the stands were full of Golden Knights fans in earlier games.
But in Montreal, the first few rows of the bleachers were vacant, and seats were sparsely filled due to social distancing requirements.
Masks also aren't required in Vegas but are required indoors in Montreal.
Although the atmosphere in the Bell Centre was less raucous than that of Las Vegas, it didn't stop the Montreal Canadiens from their Game 3 semi-final victory, thanks to Josh Anderson's winning goal in overtime.
