The last few days of July are here, which means we're one step closer to fall foliage and, unfortunately, cool weather ahead. As we enter August, now is the time to consider loading up on summer activities. The season may have passed quickly, but there are still plenty of things to do in Montreal.
From noshing on vegan sushi and checking out new murals, to going on a Jewish food tour and checking out some musical swings, the city's got you covered this weekend.
For the more adventurous, there are also timeless adventures like nature park exploration and classic summer date marathons.
Those looking to get out of the city should consider blueberry picking at one of the many farms in the metro area — we're getting close to the peak season.
Catching up on a good book poolside is also a respectable option.
As the days get shorter, there's precious little time to waste lounging at home.
