Things to Do in Montreal
As the capital city of Quebec, Montreal is a busy metropolitan area with more activities and sights to see then you could ever fit into one trip. Here are some of the highlights to consider for your vacation.
Once home of the Olympic track cycling and judo events, this massive space is now dedicated to replicating four ecosystems found on the American continent. Experience and learn more about the tropical forest of South American, the Laurentian forest of North America, the Saint Lawrence marine ecosystem of Canada, and the sub-polar region.
This historic neighborhood is a must-see when visiting Montreal. As the oldest area of the city, you’ll find remains from New France of the 1700s. You can visit Montreal City Hall and Bonsecours Market on the east end, and the old town riverbank for museums and other Montreal tourist attractions.
Get a taste of Montreal architecture by visiting this Roman Catholic church. The basilica is Canada’s largest church and even has one of the largest domes in the world. The church has an art museum, gardens, and tours to check out while on the premises. You can also plan your visit in coordination with one of the church’s many concerts and other events.
With lakes and mountains right outside the city limits, Montreal is the perfect city for an outdoor lover to visit. Choose from some of these popular activities to get a taste of nature while you’re in town.
Parc Nature Du Cap-Saint-Jacques
This park has plenty to offer no matter what time of year you visit Montreal. You’ll find the trails just 35 minutes outside of downtown Montreal, but feel like you’re in another world as soon as you get there. Hike, snowshoe, or take your pick of any other rental gear to get your Canadian nature fix.
This mountain range is best known for great skiing and snowboarding in the winter. The hills are perfect for beginners and feature reasonable prices compared to some of the bigger mountains in the area. The region is also one of the closest to the city, so you won’t have to travel far to enjoy a day on the slopes.
If you’re visiting Montreal in the summer, be sure to head to the Lachine rapids for a real thrill that will cool you down even on the hottest day. The jet boating is one of Montreal’s most popular tourist attractions and makes for a great day of fun. You’ll see the city from a whole new perspective if you book a boat cruise tour from one of many vendors at the water’s shoreline.
