I know nobody wants to say it, so I'll take one for the team: Summer is almost over. I know, I know, I can't believe it either. But if you're thinking that there's still so much you haven't done on your Montreal summer bucket list, then not to worry, there's still time! Plus, you can add these items to your list to make your summer even better.
Now, I know that we're lucky to live in a place that has all four seasons, but I think we can all agree that there's something magical that happens to Montreal in the summer.
Between sunny days, beautiful greenery and the light hitting the city just right, it's no wonder you get that longing to get out there and explore.
But as every Canadian knows, summer is something that must be cherished every year because before we look around, we'll be in Fall and we'll be starting our countdown for next summer.
Let's not focus on that yet, though.
For now, we need to soak in all of the sun and all of the fun while we still can to send off summer with a sizzle.
Take A Long Hike
One of the best parts about living in Quebec is the amazing hikes. Whether you're looking for uphill or something a little calmer, there's a hike for everyone, giving you the chance to get outside and see all that the province has to offer.
Visit A Winery
Quebec wine is just like the people: passionate, sophisticated and unlike anywhere else in the world.
Visiting a winery will not only give you delicious tasting wine, but will give you a sense of pride in what we have to offer.
Go To A National Park
Take A Bike Ride
See A Movie At The Drive-In
Head To Jean-Drapeau
Did you even really summer if you didn't make a visit to Parc Jean-Drapeau at least once? The iconic park can be seen from all over the island and makes for a great way to spend a beautiful summer's day.
See Some Flowers
Visit Montreal's Botanical Garden
Go To A Market
Another great part of summer is visiting farmer's markets. There are some incredible spots here in the city, as well as some fantastic spots off the island for when you're looking for something new.
Go Berry Picking
If you could pick any summer activity to add to your list, it's this. For a berry good time, head to a berry farm to pick the freshest bunches.
Stare At The Stars
The only thing more exciting than seeing celebrity stars is seeing the stars in the sky and luckily for us, Quebec is a shining place for stargazing.
Have A Picnic
Another summer trend has definitely been picnics.
Take A Food Tour
It's no secret that Montreal is not just a great city to see beautiful sites, but a great city to eat incredible food. But you can do both with some fantastic food tours throughout the city that'll even teach us locals a thing or two.
Hit The Open Road
Soak it all in!
