- From dance parties to villages of light to heated terrasses, Montreal has all everything you need to keep your heart happy and your stomach full with an impressive list of things to do this weekend!
- Find inspiration for your weekend plans below!
I know I'm not the only person who constantly finds myself counting down the days until Friday hits. Don't get me wrong, I love my job, but I also love sleeping in, binge-watching television and most of all, taking some much needed time away from my computer. As soon as the weekend approaches, I make sure to always be in the know about things to do in Montreal.
This weekend, just like (almost) every other weekend, Montreal is stocked with some pretty awesome activities, all of which will get you out of your house and will allow you to make the most of your time off of work.
From cool clothing exchanges and tours of the Champlain Bridge, to dancing your troubles away while listening to one of the hottest DJs at one of Montreal's most famous clubs, every option is sure to make you forget your weekly stress.
We all know it's getting darker earlier and colder by the day but come on folks, we are Montrealers, when did we ever let a little darkness and cold stop us from having fun?
