OLDIES BUT GOODIES

As always, Montreal has lots to offer each summer, whether it be picnicking on Mount Royal Park, flying a kite at Beaver Lake or visiting one of the city’s public markets.

If you’re in the mood to be in nature, consider supporting local and picking your own fruit and vegetables at one of the city’s many farms (just search for the one closest to you).

On a hot day, pack a towel (and some sunscreen) and spend the day at a beach — you have a choice of Verdun Beach, Jean-Doré Beach on Parc Jean-Drapeau, Plage Boucherville, the Cap-Saint-Jacques Nature Park, just to name a few.

Don’t forget you can also visit these places (and more) any time:
