See above. - Aug 2020
Mont Tremblant is supposed to be an amazing winter getaway and the Ice Hotel near Quebec City is also a must. - Feb 2018
Everything under the sun, and more: museums, every possible sport/activity, nature, etc. - Aug 2012
Anything you want, just like any North American city. I would strongly recommend getting out of Montreal and seeing the spectacular Quebec countryside - both the beautiful townships to the east of Montreal and the amazing Quebec wilderness going northeast along the St. Lawrence. - Dec 2009
Tons. Unless you're freezing your bum off and hiding indoors (which is the norm). The coolest thing is to explore beyond Montreal. Head to Quebec City and beyond. Gorgeous! - Sep 2009
Anything you can imagine. If you like nightlife, the city is a bottomless well of clubs and bars. There are more restaurants here than I had days to eat at them, and they range from 5 star to 24-hour corner grills (viva Moe's!).There are free festivals all year long (Jazz and Comedy being the big ones) with free activities all day and night. There's lots of skiing close by, and endless open space for hiking, camping and biking. Road trips to the Maritimes, weekends in NYC, you name it, it's easy to do here. - Jan 2009
