Montreal is a stunning and culturally diverse city. It is truly unlike any other place in Canada. One thing that might turn people off about Montreal is its notoriously cold Winters. FlightHub, a North American online travel agency, is based in Montreal and knows all there is to know about dealing with the extreme cold that can sometimes blanket the city. FlightHub reviews all the different things both solo travellers and families can do in Montreal to help inform travellers about attractions within the city. Using this data we ranked our top five favourite Winter attractions for families in Montreal.
1 – Sugar Shack Life
Pick a sugar shack, and go! Enjoy a hearty Quebecer breakfast and learn about the production of maple syrup. In addition to a great breakfast, sugar shacks routinely offer a wide variety of traditional treats like, a FlightHub favourite, maple syrup on snow.
2 – Indoor and Outdoor Skating
In the Winter months you can’t go more than a few blocks without stumbling upon an ice rink. Whether indoors or outdoors, going for a skate is good exercise and also a ton of fun. Some great rinks to check out include Park La Fontaine, the historic Old Port, Olympic Park, and Beaver Lake in Mount Royal Park.
3 – Catch A Montreal Canadiens Game
It goes without saying, the Montreal Canadiens are the hottest ticket in Montreal. Taking in a game is almost required reading when it comes to visiting Montreal during the NHL season. Make sure to brush up on your history before the game by exploring the numerous artifacts located in and around the Bell Centre.
4 – Escape Winter At The Biodome
If you are Montreal in the Winter and dreading it, check out the Biodome. This climate-controlled tropical paradise features a wide variety of animal life and is located near Montreal’s famous Olympic sites like the Olympic Stadium. While your in the area, explore the Montreal Tower, the World’s tallest inclined tower.
5 – Tubing And Skiing At Mount-Royal Park
If you actually enjoy getting down and dirty in the snow, FlightHub recommends heading to Mount Royal Park to do some skiing or tubing. The park also offers great trails for hiking and is very close to Montreal’s Plateau neighbourhood, which offers some of Montreal’s unique shops and cafes.
