And if your ultimate goal is, like mine, to legit spend your life on a boat, then I've got some awesome news for you.

Very soon, you'll be able to spend the night on a boat in Montreal's Old Port, as part of a collaboration between the Old Port of Montreal, Parks Canada, and Eau-Logis.

You can chill on a classic wooden boat anchored at the basin of Silo 5 for about $175 a night starting May 16, according to the Old Port's official website.

If boats aren't quite your thing, then no worries. You have the option of staying at a micro-chalet, or a cabin/tent hybrid called an oTENTik unit, all of which are located in the Old Port's Village Des Ecluses.
