You Can Ride Montreal's Old Port Ferris Wheel For Only $10 This Weekend

Okay, guys - we made it through May long weekend, and we're running into June real quick!

The summer solstice may still be almost a month away, but summertime vibes are on high all over the city. Do you feel it? Can you taste it in the air? I certainly do. 

This weekend, Montreal's Old Port is getting a jump on summer and celebrating the coming season - and it is not to be missed! At the very least, this could be your best opportunity to ride the huge observation wheel!

The giant Ferris Wheel has made a home at the Old Port of Montreal for the past year. It is the biggest Ferris Wheel in Canada, and hands down the best way to take in panoramic views of our stunning city. 

Montreal's Observation Wheel is similar to The London Eye in England, which I, personally, have dreamt about experiencing since I was a young kid. To think that it has taken me this long to check out Montreal's giant wheel is disappointing. 

Well, consider me woke - I will finally be checking out this spectacle this weekend, and so should you!

For one day, only, Montreal's Old Port is celebrating summertime and offering a ton of wicked deals on their attractions to the public - including the giant observation wheel. 

A ride around this goliath of a Ferris Wheel would usually run you over $20, but on May 26th you'll be able to ride Montreal's new tourist classic for only $10. 

Yes, that's right - $10! Less than the average price of a movie, or a couple drinks out at a pub. P.S. there is a bistro and bar on-site, and you can drink your beverages while riding.  

Here is what you'll want to remember:
