When it comes to having fun, Montréal offers a staggering selection of ways to enjoy the city. On the menu is a two-day feast of variety, quality and fabulous nightlife—and it’s so easy to move from one venue to the next!
Things to do and see
- Looking for excitement? Go with the river’s flow by doing some whitewater rafting on the Lachine Rapids. Or take ’em on by jet boat! Thrills guaranteed.
- Rent some in-line skates or a bicycle (Montreal on Wheels is located in the Old Port) and enjoy the smooth surface of Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, where the F1 Grand Prix du Canada is held each year.
- Go to a game of one of Montréal’s professional sports teams:
October to May: Watch the exciting Montreal Canadiens! The “Habs” have won the Stanley Cup 24 times - a National Hockey League record.
May to October: Catch the Alouettes football club and the Impact soccer team in their brand-new stadium.
- Get together on the Quays of the Old Port—a 2.5-kilometre car-free space where there’s always something going on. Roam to your heart’s content by foot, in-line skates, bicycle or quadricycle.
- Enjoy a movie at the IMAX®TELUS theatre in the Montréal Science Centre, where you can see the latest—and largest—IMAX® productions. Unparalleled quality images projected on a giant, seven-storey screen.
- Montréal microbreweries are famous and very popular. Brutopia, on Crescent Street, has a broad selection of beers, including eight house brands brewed on site. Three floors and as many decks, with live music every night.
- Gogo Lounge: martinis, joie de vivre and wild nightlife.
Hilton Montréal Bonaventure: This downtown hotel offers spacious rooms surrounding landscaped gardens and an outdoor pool that’s heated all year long.
- Hard Rock Café: for the atmosphere, rock’n’roll history and memorabilia, and good times.
- Holder: Reminiscent of the great European breweries. Excellent service, décor, generous food servings and lively cocktail hour.
- Globe: Without a doubt one of the most “in” restaurants on Saint-Laurent Blvd. Serves cuisine du marché, putting the spotlight on local produce.
