• Montreal In September: Things To Do

    Sep 12, 2019

    Autumn is a great time in Montreal because there's always so much to do! From scenic hikes to exploring unique bars and restaurants, you won’t run out of activities. Timbercreek Communities has a few suggestions for you to try this September.

    Ariel view of Montreal

    Hike up Mont Royal

    If you want to enjoy an incredible view and get some exercise, hike up Mont Royal! The locals love it just as much as the tourists. The walk is about 45 minutes (depending on how fast you walk), and you can start at McGill University’s Campus. There are a few decent lookouts along the way to the top, but when you reach the summit you’ll enjoy the best view of downtown Montreal there is! Before heading back down, take a break, have a snack and enjoy the views!

    Spa Getaway at Bota Bota

    Everyone loves a good spa day, but if you want a truly unique experience you must check out Bota Bota Spa. Escape the city and pamper yourself at this special spa facility located right on the water. You can enjoy a variety of spa treatments, massages, water circuits and the sauna -- all on a boat! Spoil yourself at the spa's top-notch restaurant, Les Traversée, while you're there. This is one experience you won’t want to miss!

    Walk St. Paul Street

    Step back in time when you walk along Rue St. Paul! This historic street attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors a year and it’s no surprise why. You can check out unique art galleries and boutiques, picturesque cafes like Tommy Cafe, or have a fabulous meal at one of the restaurants along the cobblestone street. Rue St-Paul does get busy, so if you don’t like the crowds try to avoid it on weekends.

    Visit Unique Bars and Lounges

    Montreal is definitely the place for unique bars! It’s also home to Canada’s smallest bar, El Pequeño Bar, located in the heart of Old Montreal on Rue St-Vincent. The bar is hopping even though it's only 150 square feet and fits up to 11 people. It's known for its delicious Cuban sandwiches and classic cocktails, especially their mojitos. But if you’re feeling a bit too claustrophobic, head over to Canal Lounge. This floating bar is definitely more spacious! Float on the Lachine Canal as you enjoy a glass of wine, or enjoy a bite or two from their menu. Canal Lounge is only open until October, so be sure to check it out soon!

    Go Shopping

    Montreal has something for everyone when it comes to shopping. It really depends on what you’re looking for, but chances are you’ll be able to find it in this city. If you’re looking for big department stores and big-name brands, head over to St. Catherine’s Street. You’ll find anything from Zara and Simons to Apple. For high-end luxury stores, check out Sherbrooke Street. Visit Old Montreal and St.Laurent Street in Mile End for boutique shops carrying anything from trendy apparel to vintage items.

    Even though summer is slowly coming to an end, there’s so much to be excited about this September!
