7 Flowery Spots In & Around Montreal You And Your Bestie Have To Discover This Spring

Spring is (almost) in the air!
7 Flowery Spots In & Around Montreal You And Your Bestie Have To Discover This Spring
  • Soon enough, flowers in Montreal will be taking over the city.
  • In anticipation of such, we made a list of flowery spots in and around Montreal for you to discover once spring is in full effect.
  • See our list of spots for you and your bestie to check out below!

It looks like spring weather may come a little early this year, and is anyone really mad about that? As we all know, the season of spring brings the loveliest of colours to our city as flowers begin to grow at every corner we turn. With this in mind, MTL Blog thought it would be useful to list out some of the spots filled with flowers in and around Montreal that you should seek out once spring is in full force.

All of these spots are no more than an hour and a half drive away, which makes for an easy day trip. Some you won't even need to leave the city for — an added bonus.

Of course, we have one of the best gardens right here in Montreal all year long, the Botanical Gardens, but that doesn't mean we can't explore new ones as well!

Take a look below at the seven of the prettiest flower spots near Montreal that you have to visit this spring, whether it be with your best friend, your mom, your significant other, or as a solo date!

I hope this list gets you as excited for spring as it did for me.
