Yes, Montreal has the country’s harshest Winter weathers, not the worse, and it’s weather can get to you as it had high humidity and the temperature drops and rises so frequently and quickly. How do you accommodate for such harsh winter and what is life like in Montreal’s hip city?
Here are what Montrealers do and how we enjoy the best of this amazing city!
Old Montreal: From being the hippest place now in this province to being the most touristic attraction, Old Montreal is definitely the place to be nowadays. Ye sit can get pretty cold and looking sightly dead in winter when you wonder through it, yet dont be deceived. Just venture to any one of the cool restaurants and bars and see what I mean by happening. The places get crowded up by so many good looking, hip crowd, and as if that isnt enough, you get to see the citys hippest DJs and clubs and restaurants. There is no words to describe this amazing town except you gotta be there. So much concerts and shows happen even in this area so watch out for those. Try partying with a limo and see how different it is.
Plateau Mont-Royal: This is the most diverse and unique area in Montreal. Its also got the most character, meaning, French atmosphere. Its proximity to downtown makes its a very appealing hangout. The bars and restaurants in this neighbourhood could be depending on your style the city’s hippest ’hood, with its funky lifestyle. Walking through this place gives you exactly what Montreal is all about, with its beautiful architecture and colorful housing. The shopping street Avenue du Mont-Royal is typical to what is seen.
The Underground City: Even though its not a place to party, it is what people do in winter in Montreal. A whole city for shopping built underground in downtown Montreal so people can shop till they drop without having to be subjected to the cold. It connects to the underground metro and to many restaurants, theater, malls and businesses. Its a shelter for many people that work and live downtown and who want to avoid transportation in the cold.
Saint Laurent Bar Hopping: Even though most tourists flock to Crescent and downtown, the best place to find the Montreal hippest and most beautiful people is on Saint Laurent street. The street is full of Bars, restaurant where many celebraties have been spotted, resto lounges and where most of the models hang out. This street os pretty much the best place to explore for bar hopping. My favourite place there has always been Rouge as it hosts 2 floors of dance music and has the coolest people.
Best Skiing: Even though we have extreme cold climate, Montrealers will continue to bike and embrace the cold until the last moment they can. We have excellent skiing resorts and best prices for hotel and ski chalets. Just our next door neighbours Toronto have double our prices with ski resorts and their main one gets over crowded offering no choices to people that want to ski.
Even though we have the worse winters, yet we EMBRACE it, Enjoy it, are proud to have the country’s best food, restaurants and nightlife.
