We dare you to go skinny dipping.

Are you scared of heights? If the answer is yes, then you probably shouldn't read past this line. Then again, you can do whatever you want, I'm not a cop.

But for those of you curious enough to still be reading, we've got a treat for you.

Montreal actually has an indoor glass bottom pool! So if you've always dreamed of taking a leisurely swim while a bunch of strangers stare at you from below, then your dream is about to come true.

If you drive up to the entrance of the Westin Hotel in the Old Port of Montreal and look up, you'll notice 8 blue tiles. Only those aren't tiles, that's actually the bottom of the pool.

Hopefully you aren't bashful, otherwise you might want to stick to the hottub. Or perhaps you're feeling extra daring and you have the guts to go skinny dipping in there. After all, what's the point of having a glass-bottomed public pool if not to show off a little skin?

If you are brave enough to actually skinny-dip in this pool - please, please please! - send us the proof so we can award you our Most Awesome Montrealer award.
