Embrace the sunshine!
14 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend

Summer is Montreal may be getting started a little later than usual, but things are starting to reopen and life is starting to regain a bit of normalcy. There are tons of sites to explore throughout the city, meals to try, and of course, a ton of businesses that are opening their doors again. With so much to do during the next few days, we thought we'd give you a little list of things to do in Montreal this weekend.

Depending on your mood and what you're looking to do this weekend, there's no reason why you shouldn't embrace the sunshine that's upon us.

We all need a little bit of positivity in our world and this weekend is a great time to enjoy all that our city has to offer.

And, as a bonus, the weather is going to be beautiful, making it an ideal weekend to explore the province as well.

Take note of the heatwave warning that Environment Canada put out for the Montreal area for the next few days though.

Make sure to drink lots of water — it's going to be hot.
