Its. Not. Over. Yet.
As the closing month of the summer quickly reached its midpoint, it’s easy for that summer nostalgia to fade – but luckily, we realize it ain’t over yet! And what better time to kick-off that end-of-summer bucket list? To give you a head start, here are 15 activities to cross off your list before the end of the summer:
See a tourist attraction in your city.
Indulge in some street food from one of Montreal’s (or your city’s) many food trucks.
Get rowdy at a Montreal Expos or Impacte game.
Spend a day at the beach.
Head to Montreal’s La Diperie, or another amazing Montreal ice cream spot, ice cream for breakfast anyone??
Take advantage of the lasting days of fresh markets like Marche Jean Talon.
Enjoy stargazing at the top of Mount Royal Lookout after a night hike.
Have a picnic at Mount Royal- you can make it extra summer by first cooking a grilled pizza at home, and take advantage of Montreal’s picnic law which permits drinking in public on Sundays if you have food on you!
Enjoy a day paddle boarding (stand up board), canoeing, or kayaking.
Have a campfire.. And don’t forget roasted hot dogs and s’mores!!
Wear an all white outfit (it’s not Labour Day yet).
Jump off something really tall into the water; that’s a Canadian summer staple!
Spend the day drinking (or eating) with friends in the sun on one of Montreal’s many summer terraces, like this one:
or this one…
OR this one…
Or even this one.. (there’s a lot of terraces here)
Do the old port zip line before it closes down for the season (it’s not as scary as it looks).
Rejoice because festival season is never over with Villa Paradizo – the free 24hr rave to kick off the end of summer, is coming back to Montreal on the 9th and 10th of September!!
