Best Time to Visit Montreal
Summer is most tourists’ favourite time to visit Montreal - the temperature is a perfect 18-24°C, the sun shines for extended periods and outdoor festivities are a-plenty. From June to August, the Montreal Jazz Festival, indie music festival Osheaga and ÎleSoniq fills the city with light, colour and sound, bringing locals and tourists alike outside to enjoy the good weather. But winter, harsh as it is in the city, brings people outdoors too - but with skis, snowboards and sledges in tow. The city is surrounded by a good number of highly regarded ski resorts and mountains like Mont Blanc, Mont Tremblant and Le Massif, making it a highly popular winter sports holiday destination.
Things to do in Montreal
Though not the capital of Canada (that honour belongs to Ottawa) Montreal is known as the country’s unofficial cultural capital due to its strong emphasis on the arts. Home to countless renowned theatre and dance companies as well as summer music festivals, Montreal was designated a UNESCO City of Design in 2006 for its creative potential and is today considered one of North America’s most stylish cities.
Besides admiring the artistic talents of the Montrealers, be sure to visit the historic district of Old Montreal for an understanding of the city’s history as well. Sitting along the St. Lawrence River you’ll find evidence of the city’s past under colonial rule (first by France and then Britain) in its 17th-century architecture.
