- We're all slowly beginning to feel the dread of winter, which is why MTL Blog decided to make a list of happy things to do in Montreal during the snowy season.
- Check the list out below!
Montreal winters have a dreary habit of never-ending. And for many of us, with Montreal winters come the inevitable winter blues. Between the relentless cold, rain, snow, ice, short and dark days, and lack of social interaction, it can be difficult to drum up any cheer. The next eight weeks are usually tough ones to be in the city. But hallelujah, there many things to do in Montreal that will hopefully bring a little dopamine and serotonin boost to your day.
The good news is, they are all indoors. Yes, the old adage of "getting some fresh air" is probably true. And there are a ton of fresh-faced, winter activities you can take part in but for those of us who think just getting to the metro is enough outdoorsy, cold air fun, then the following list is for you.
If you're in need of some cozy, some weird or just need to change your scenery for a few hours, check out the list below.
From getting some outdoor tropical feels (but thankfully, all from inside) to testing out whether laughter is really the best medicine, these 8 places around Montreal are sure to help make this winter a little less bleak.
