6 Places To See Gorgeous Spring Flowers In Montreal That Aren't The Botanical Garden

There's nothing quite like watching the season change from winter to spring as the weather warms in Montreal and flowers begin to bloom. And, while the Botanical Garden is awesome, it's not the only place in the city to see stunning florals. In fact, there are many great spots around the city to see the flowers bloom for free

The Botanical Garden also costs $16.50 for Quebec residents. Again, no shade toward the Botanical garden (you're lovely and precious), but sometimes we want to enjoy the beauty of nature without having to pay for it.
