1. Mount Royal
Made up of three summits—de la Croix, Westmount Summit and Tiohtià:ke Otsira’kéhne—and the city’s namesake centerpiece, Mont Royal is full of countless things to do all year long. In winter, slopes once dedicated to cross-country skiing are currently used as adrenaline-inducing tobogganing grounds, while warmer months are ideal for hiking and taking in views of the city. There’s Beaver Lake which supplies a great area to barbecue and relax, but it’s the northern side you’ll want to explore in summer when Tam-Tams takes place, a giant drum circle where many Montrealers can be found on Sundays.
