One of my favorite ways to enjoy spring weather is to get out on the water. I'm talking about aquatic activities! Running and biking is great, but there's something about water that just makes everyone ten times more relaxing and enjoyable. 

One of the best things about Montreal is that it has tons of canals and waterways that make kayaking super accessible. And I don't know if you've ever been kayaking but it seriously awesome! Spring 2018 is a perfect time to give it a try. Here's where you can go in Montreal:
