Spring is such a beautiful season in Montreal! The flowers are blooming, the birds are singing, the bears are coming out of hibernation after the long and cold winter… oops, I mean people! The temperature is rising, the terraces are opening and the festivals are knocking on our doors! We know it’s very hard to keep track of all of the on-going activities but don’t worry, we will introduce you to our favourite hideouts throughout the city!
1. Start spring in style by having a drink at one of our favourite terraces! Click here for our favourite 6!
2. Montreal’s Quartier des Spectacles brings back one of our favorite childhood activities. The swings-but with a twist! From April 10th until May 28th, you can partake in this awesome activity! The purpose of this attraction is simple: To promote the spirit of cooperation. If you want to achieve certain melodies, you need teamwork skills, full collaboration between players and the ability to adapt. We truly believe that this is a beautiful design and use of public space that connects and inspires people.
3. Dance the day away in style at the renowned electronic music festival: Piknic Elektronic. You can get your moves on every Sunday from May 21st through to September 24th.
Location: Parc Jean Drapeau, easily reached by Subway. Just get off at the station by the same name on the yellow line and you’re there!
4. Rent a Bixi bicycle from one of the many stands around the city and get ready to have an amazing time! You can start from the Lachine Canal and bike to the Old Port or vice versa. Don’t forget to stop by the nearby Terrasse St-Ambroise to sample some snacks and locally brewed beers!
5. It’s Sugar Shack Season! Take a day trip to one of our top 6 recommendations just outside of the city, or instead, enjoy an urban Sugar Shack experience in the heart of Montreal.
6. Lastly, once a year, and for one day, many of Montreal’s main museums open their doors with free entry. This year that day falls on March 28th. The official schedule has yet to be announced, but you can check out Montreal Museum’s page for more information!
