Montreal is one the most unique and lively cities in Canada. The city itself, named after the infamous Mont Royal, is constantly offering and facilitating fun and free activities. On the mountain you can find Beaver Lake, the mountain lookout, and Tam Tam’s. Every summer Sunday, thousands of people gather on the mountain to enjoy live music, sports, larping, or just relaxing.
Located in the eastern part of Montreal just off of St. Catharine street is Place Des Arts which is home of many of Montreal’s festivals such as the Jazz Festival in July and the Comedy Festival which is currently running. What’s great about these festivals is that they offer free concerts in the evening, normally starting around 7pm, with notable opening acts such as Woodkid. When Place Des Arts is not hosting a festival you can go there to see many different concerts, ballets, symphonies, and the like.
Just down the street on Sherbrooke is Montreal’s Museum of Fine Arts. The museum is free on Wednesday evenings for all ages, and free any day of the week for people under thirty. Although particular exhibits are at additional cost, the regular display at the museum is definitely something worth visiting and is interesting for all ages. The museum contains a great variety of work varying from impressionist art, to photography and contemporary art. Overall a must see! These are merely a few examples of attractions that Montreal has to offer, the city is filled with things to see and things to do for both locals and tourists.
