6 Reasons to Visit Montreal on Memorial Day Long Weekend

April 28, 2015

Great Reasons to Head North

Memorial Day 2015 falls on Monday, May 25th. As one of the most popular American weekends for taking a little getaway, the Memorial Day long-weekend is your perfect chance to visit Montreal. Booking a hotel suite downtown Montreal for a few days will put your home-base right in the center of all the fun things to do and places you’ll want to visit. But there’s more! Here are 6 reasons to come to Montreal for Memorial Day Long Weekend: 

1) Strong US Dollar Means Great Deals

Take advantage of your strong US dollar and travel to Montreal. One excellent perk for our American guests is the fact that the US dollar is higher than ours. That translates into more bang for your buck! You’ll pay less for dinners, hotel rooms, gas…everything. It also means that you can upgrade your budget hotel suite in Montreal to the next grade up, essentially for the same price. Having a strong US dollar makes now the perfect time to book a weekend getaway in Montreal.

2) Take a Stroll to Remember – Visit Mont Royal Cemetery

Memorial Day is a great time to take an hour aside to remember those who fought for our countries. Park-like, with some of the best views of the city, Mont Royal Cemetery is the perfect way to enjoy the outdoor beauty and honour those who died in battle. Mont Royal Cemetery is located at 1297 Chemin de la Forêt in Outremont.

3) Early Summer Fashion in Full Bloom

This is a great time to shop for your new summer clothes also! With spring lines heading on the sale rack, and summer lines out in full display, you can take your pick of the crop at the multitudes of boutiques and department stores. Expect to find everything from Euro-flair to true Montreal fashion. From eclectic to classy, bargain to high-end; you can shop till you drop in this trendy city. There’s something for every style and budget.

4) Montréal Museums Day - Sunday, May 24, 2015

This is a great deal! Memorial Day weekend is also host to Montréal Museums Day. You can choose from a list of over 30 local museums, free activities and features, free shuttles and much more. Since it is all free, how much better can it get? Remember many of the museums are located close to our downtown Montreal hotel rooms, making it easy to access the venues you want.

5) Visit the Beautiful Botanical Gardens

With the gardens gearing up after a long winter, there is so much to see. Be sure to check out the “Your Garden” exhibit in the Molson Hospitality Greenhouse. It tells the incredibly rich history of the Botanical Gardens over the past years. Fun to see! There are also many other activities, as well as tours of the gardens. Tours leave at 10:30am and 1:30pm from the reception center.

6) Take the Mile End Food Tour

This 1.36 mile walking tour will take you through the trendy Mile End gastronomic district. For only $49 you’ll get a taste of some of the best local and international cuisine Montreal is known for. You can book the tour online at the Local Montreal Tours website. They also run private tours for groups and a “Craft Beer & Wine” tour.
