Top Family Activities in Montreal this Summer

 
 

Summer is the best time of the year to enjoy some quality time with the family and to have the kids do something out of the ordinary. Montreal has a lot to offer when it comes to family activities. Break your routine and try one, or many, of the following ideas.

Have a Family Brunch
What better way to spend time with family than around a nice table full of delicious food on a Sunday morning? Have the kids do their fair share of the cooking and get help to prepare the crepe mix, the fruit salad or bake some croissants. If you don’t feel like cooking, try some great family-friendly restaurants in Montreal, such as unique spots like Fabergé and L’Avenue or chains like Cora, Eggsquis and Ben & Florentine.

Visit the Planetarium & Insectarium
A visit at the Planetarium or Insectarium is guaranteed to please not only kids, but the older crowd as well. Exploring the flora and fauna of the world and the history of our planet is educational and also a lot of fun: perfect Saturday activity! Note that the Biodôme is closed for major renovation until Summer 2019.

Bike along Canal Lachine
Bike rides make for the best family memories! Build great ones with your loved ones by pedaling along Canal Lachine. If you want to change things up from the traditional ride, rent a tandem, kid’s bike attachment or even a trailer!

Explore Other Cultures
Kids will love discovering new traditions and customs. Bring the family to visit China Town, Little Italy, the Historic Jewish Quarter or the Gay Village. Food, art, people, religion, architecture and so many more aspects of several cultures are right here in Montreal.
