So you are in Montreal and you are faced with its harsh winter … what would be the best way to get around this beautiful city and still enjoy it…??
Here are some tips for you to get the most our of winter while moving around:
1. Always Always Always be prepared with the best protective clothing: cause no matter how you move around, there is always a chance your vehicle might break down somewhere.. somehow … and you will end up stranded in the the cold.. snow blowing in your face and ill prepared…
2. Have a phone number handy of a cab or your best buddy that you can call for emergency incase you needed help and are stranded in the cold!
3. Metro/Subway are your safest bet but are you close to one ? Probably using the metro is the best mode of transportation in winter but if you are not close to one it could be quite a hassle to get to one. I would recommend using a a cab to get to the metro or using your car to get to one and parking it safely after that.
4. Make the most out of anything. Don’t get bummed down if its a snow storm. If you need to get to a destination, then go out there and get to where you want with the safe transportation such as metro and walking.
5. Montrealers enjoy montreal even when its freezing in winter and so once you get to your destination you will be happy you made it cause the clubs, bars, restaurants are busy with people who want to enjoy their life and not stay indoors just because its cold out there.
6. Use private transportation and in this way you can be picky what vehicle to select that best suits the condition of the road.
7. Walk to the bar around the corner, thats assuming there is one. Yes walking is a hassle, but if you want to get somewhere close, parking will be an issue most places in winter so why not just visit the places close by walking.
Once of the reasons people like Montreal is because it has so much to offer even in its harsh weather. There are the best restaurants to enjoy, the best pubs and bars and lots of social events during these harsh winters.
Once you know how to get around safely in winter and get over the harsh cold, you will know that inorder to enjoy such a city you need to remember that these are the times when you would relax with others just like you that appreciate the place they are in and want to enjoy their time, just like you.
So, always learn to stop complaining about the winter and make the most out of it !
