Top 24 New Montreal Things You'll Really Want To Do For Your Birthday

Okay, so everyone in Montreal usually goes out for their birthday at either a night club on Boulevard St.Laurent or in Old Montreal. Well, why not be different and do something even crazier for your birthday!

Montreal does have a great night life but they also have a variety of amazing activities that you and your friends should do to celebrate your birthdays. So break away from spending hundreds of dollars on bottle service every week for someone's birthday and try something new!

I can guarantee you that if you choose one of these activities for your birthdays that you won't regret it! Do something crazy and worth wild for your birthday instead of getting completely wasted and not even remembering the night. I'm not saying to get drunk, I'm just saying party the right way and not at  dirty club!

1. Celebrate By Renting A Chalet

Why not have a wild house party at a chalet! You and your friends can organise the party and rent out the Loghome. It's my personal favourite and its a perfect house for a wild party. It's a waterfront loghome that has a billiard table, Foosball, and much more!

You can still party it up for your birthday while enjoying Mont-Tremblant!


2. Celebrate By Skydiving

Well everyone knows that Montreal has some great spas but lets get away from the city spas and let your friends take you out to the ultimate relaxation place. Now this is a new experience!

It's called the float room, it’s a big enclosed tub filled with a salt water solution. You float face up and it's very relaxing! The only spa that offers it in Montreal is Spa Ovarium.

You are enclosed for about an hour with just your thoughts. It may seem scary but it's a great experience! So you and your friends can relax and mentally prepare yourself for that wild night ahead!


9. Celebrate By Wine Tasting

Instead of worrying about how you are going to get home from a club, try driving yourself around a race track instead! Montreal's largest go-carting track is called Action 500.

I can say, based on personal experience, that their go-carting is great and the best in town! So drive wild on your birthday and have a blast with your friends.

If you dig mysteries, try one of Montreal's escape games! They are escape games in the sense that you have to solve puzzles, find clues, and use codes to escape and solve mysteries. It's a great way to celebrate your birthday with your friends!

My personal favourite is the challenging A/maze game! It's so difficult that only 10% have ever finished it. So get your thinking cap on for you birthday.


22. Celebrate By Throwing A Boat Party

In addition, you guys can also attend a boaty brunch in Montreal at Le Bateau Mouche! It's fun and delicious for a birthday celebration!
