About Adventure in Montreal
“And some places you been before are so great that you don't ever mind going back. Some places you been before you don't ever want to go back, you know, like Montreal in the winter.” - Morgan Freeman.
Everyone likes to hate on Montreal winters. That’s part of their charm. Unbeknownst to most, the winter months offer their own brand of fun. Only 30 minutes to an hour outside the city are a range of ski hills will make you forget the slush and ice that made driving there seem so perilous.
In the fall, one word: LEAVES. The whole city takes on an orangey-golden glow.
When summer starts to glitter on the horizon, pack a picnic and soak in the rays in one of the city’s 17 parks, which take up a combined 4,900 acres.
Mont-Royal, Sentiers de l’Estrie and Parc National du Mont-Tremblant (outside the city)
Old Montreal by calèche (horse-drawn carriage)
Official Marathon de Montréal route, Downtown to the mountain or up Voie Camillien-Houde (for uphill runners).
YMCA, CEPSUM, outdoor community pools in the summer. To cool off while walking through the city in the summer, stop by the free water fountains at Place-des-Arts.
YMCA, Nautilus Plus, Mansfield Club (for a luxury workout).
Montreal is very bike friendly. If you don’t have your own, grab a Bixie bike for $5 for a half hour and peddle down the city’s many bike paths.
