Are you a Montreal student resident stuck in Montreal before the summer internships? Try out a staycation at one of the lesser known places this summer!

Internet is a funny world, coming up with terminologies that Oxford did not even know existed 10 years ago.

It actually means to stay home on your vacation and see the local attractions that you may or may not know about. Therefore, if you are a Montreal student resident, these are the 10 attractions you need to hit before the stress of summer internships take over:
