9 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend

So many things to do, so little time.
9 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend

We work hard all week to enjoy the weekends, which is why they should not be spent locked in our apartments binge-watching Netflix — at least not during the summer. We suffer through the cold all winter long to enjoy the heat when it arrives and I know I'm not the only local who waits for the weekend so that I can enjoy a day or two of exploring this amazing city. And, as always, there are tons of cool things to do in Montreal this weekend.

Between Friday and Sunday night, it's our time to wind down from the week and remind us why we love our city so dearly.

Summer is when we are supposed to take advantage of all the fun and really let our hair down.
