We're lucky to live in a city where there are endless options of places to eat and activities to do.
That being said, it can be challenging to move from point A to point B swiftly in the winter when our bicycles are in the shed.
This is where car2go comes in. The service allows you to unlock a car with your phone and get you going on your own time. That means that it allows you to move everywhere in the city without worrying about transit or parking. Yes, you read that right, Car2Go lets you park the car when you get to your destination, and parking is free in all cities (forget about meters!).
With that knowledge in mind, you're more than ready to spend the perfect weekend in the city.
In my book, every great Saturday starts with a hearty brunch, and Montreal's a city where brunch spots abound!
While you probably have your favourites, why not try something new (and equally delicious) this time?
Grab a car and head over to St.Henri, a neighborhood that is getting cooler by the minute. You can stroll along Notre-Dame St. W. and go to Arthur's, Montreal's premier Jewish style nosh bar, for out-of-the-ordinary brunches; think Jewish classics, revisited.
Hop back into the car2go, direction downtown, to go...
The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts has a brand-new pavilion, the Michael and Renata Hornstein Pavillion for Peace, and you can visit it for FREE until January 15th! Not only does it house an incredible selection of art, from Old Masters to contemporary artists, but the building itself is worth the detour! Not only is it an architectural wonder, but it also offers a mind-blowing view of the city.
While you're downtown, you've got to check out this year's installation in Quartier des Spectacles. Between Jeanne-Mance Street and Balmoral Street, giant zoetropes are installed, waiting to be activated to bring fairy-tale images to life. Yep, you'll have to move inside of them to witness a story made out of images, which should create a magical moment indeed!
Not only do we live on an island, but we also have island parks right next to our big island. Parc Jean-Drapeau is a must-go due to the insane selection of activities that you can do year-round, and it's especially magical during the winter! You can go for a hike along the trails, check out the casino's festive activities, or attend the Fête des neiges de Montréal, which will happen every weekend from January 14th to February 5th, 2017.
Chinatown is one of my favourite neighborhoods to go out to eat at: it is home to dozens of restaurants and has a mood of its own that brings a new perspective on the city. My personal favourites? Vietnamese restaurants Pho Bang New York and Pho Bac.
Brunch on the weekend shouldn't be limited to one day only... Right? Get up nice and early and head to the restaurant before everyone wakes up because you'll want to make the most of your day!
Grab your car2go and head a bit West to have a delicious lunch at Cafe Bloom, one of my favourite cafes in the city. Not only is the coffee delicious, but their food is all fresh and homemade! Try one of their vegetarian sandwiches or the chicken and avocado sandwich (my fave!) with one of their delicious side salads or soups.
Since you're fuelled up and are in Pointe Saint-Charles already, why not try rock climbing at Allez Up? The sport has been seeing its popularity reach unprecedented heights recently, and there are reasons for that. It has amazing benefits for your physical AND mental health and changes from your regular gym routine.
After climbing, you'll be craving food! Cadet is a new restaurant, opened by the same owners as Bouillon Bilk. The food quality is exceptional, and the decor is pretty. It's a great place to finish your weekend beautifully!
You've relaxed, worked out, and ate, and you deserve to be taken away by a great story. Montreal has a few indie cinemas that are worth the detour. Take your Car2Go and head to the McGill ghetto to Cinema du Parc, which offers a great selection of local and international movies in English and French.
After this weekend filled with adventures, you'll go home with the peace of mind that comes along with having lived your days off to the fullest.
Driving a car in the city doesn't have to be complicated, and it is super simple with car2go! For a limited time only, car2go offers free registration and a $5 bonus drive so that you can take your first drive on them.
Montreal's hottest music festival is right around the corner, and with headliners like Radiohead, Lana Del Rey, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, the line-up for this year is crazier than ever.
If you haven't gotten tickets yet, you might want to act fast, since there are only General Admission single day passes left for sale on the official website. But don't panic, if you're feeling lucky, you could still score some day passes for FREE!
That's right, car2go is rolling out one of the freshest promos of the summer giving all Montrealers a chance to win a shiny day-pass to Osheaga on them.
And to enter, all you have to do is take a picture. There's a fresh batch of smart cars out there rolling around with Osheaga stickers on them, and if you happen to catch one, make sure to share a picture of it on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #car2gOSHEAGA, and you just might be heading off to Osheaga for free! But hurry, because there are only 6 passes up or grabs and winners will be selected on July 25!
We all know getting round Montreal for the weekend can be a real pain sometimes, but it doesn't have to be. Sign up for car2go for free by using promo code OSHEAGA, and get a bonus 30 minutes. It's the luxury of owning your own vehicle for those rainy day shopping trips or getting out to explore the city with friends, you know, without all the hassle of owning your own car. And with no commitment, you don't ever pay unless you use it. Definitely beats taking the bus.

Without a doubt, there are an almost infinite amount of locations around Montreal that just beg to be Instagrammed, and chances are, you've even snapped at least a few of them yourselves already.
But if you've missed some along the way, or you're just looking for new inspiration, look no further, because we've compiled a list of 25 Montreal spots guaranteed to garner you some extra likes on your Instagram.
And the best way to get to all of them? Hop in a car2go, which until June 19, is offering FREE registration (regularly $35) and 15 minutes of FREE drive time just for using the promo code C2G15.
Montreal sure is pretty, don't cha think? Of course, there are so many more picturesque places around the city to get that perfect Insta, the sky's the limit! If you plan on knocking off a bunch of these in a single day, or maybe you're more the kind to snap a pic while you're out and about on your daily travels, the last thing you want to deal with is finding parking, or stalled metros, amirite?
With no surge pricing or monthly fees,car2go is a super convenient way of getting around town. Pay only for the time you use (which includes gas, insurance, and parking btw), and you can even feel good about helping the environment at the same time, since ride-sharing services like car2go means less cars on the road!
