Winter Sports with a View in Old-Montreal
Whether boasting full-on winters is actually a curse or a blessing remains to be seen; but whenever a snowstorm hits and cover the city in a fresh layer of snow, one can hardly feel anything else than sheer excitement, especially in Old-Montreal. The Bonsecours Quay are not only iconic year-round, but also quite festive in the colder months thanks to a popular and entertaining ice-skating rink. For just $6, skaters can relish the view of downtown Montreal and the Old-Port, especially the historic Bonsecours Market, while enjoying the music and the colorful lighting, in a truly unique urban ambiance. Each night has a different theme (including Classical Mondays and Retro Fridays) and thus, from November to March.
