November 2019: Even as winter steadily approaches, this is a city that likes to keep things fresh, and that calls for an update to our guide to the best things to do in Montreal. You can rest easy knowing that our local experts keep up on the latest and greatest in town. That’s why we’re saying goodbye to the visual feasts that were PY1 and Aires Libres in the Gay Village; both are no longer available. In their place, we’ve got the essential Québécois experience of sugar shacks and the unforgettable Habitat 67, an iconic relic of Montreal’s Expo.

Here you’ll find an essential bucket list that every self-respecting Montrealer and eager visitor should experience, from a combination of eye candy attractions and landmarks, the city’s amazing lotus-eating lifestyle of art, culture, restaurants and bars, and incomparable character that makes it one of the finest cities in the world.
