THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL: JANUARY

Montreal has many secrets – rendez-vous locations, after-hours parties – but let me tell you a secret about winter in Montreal: it’s really not that bad. Oh, there was a time when winter in Montreal meant a certain amount of suffering, but these days, well, we have the technology to not only stay warm but to stay highly entertained.

FREE THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL: NOVEMBER

Falling a close second behind February as everyone’s least-favourite month (though Montreal has cleverly thrown a wrench in that logic by holding our Nuit Blanche festivities in February), November might not seem the most fabulous time in this northern town – but one look beyond the superficial and it’s abundantly clear that November is awesome, especially if you’re a fan of free stuff, the arts and leisurely times outside…
