When it’s time for a getaway, Montreal is a choice destination
for lots of fun activities. Every day brings something new and a
new part of the city to discover!
For a striking view of the metropolis,
head up to the 360° Observatory at Place Ville Marie and see if
you can spot all of the city’s landmarks. While you’re taking in
the panoramic view, enjoy bistro fine dining at Les Enfants
Terribles on its impressive rooftop patio.
Follow up with a visit of the McCord Museum to learn about life in Montreal at various periods of time.
The museum focuses on the preservation and appreciation of the
city’s social and cultural history, from its beginnings to the
present day. It is home to one of the largest collections of
objects, artifacts, archives and photographs in North America and
features several temporary exhibitions every year.
Feel like doing something a bit more
active? Why not go for a spin (or two!) around the indoor skating
rink at Atrium le 1000. The temperature is always just right, and
you can take advantage of the skate rental service and grab a bite
at one of the food court’s many restaurants. Enjoy the casual
ambience and upbeat music while you get some exercise!
