Montreal, the erstwhile commercial capital of Canada, is the most populous municipality in Quebec province. Well-connected by air and rail to various parts of the country as well as international destinations, this bustling city is also a hub of education. There is no dearth of places to enjoy art, relish good food, and live life to the fullest when you are in this beautiful city. This 4,000-year-old destination is a popular location for international conferences as well as music and sporting events such as the Canadian Grand Prix segment of Formula One racing. With plenty of things happening each day, the city is just as amazing by night as it is by day! Here are some things to do at night in Montreal.

1. Go for a midnight stroll up Mount Royal

The city of Montreal derives its name from this volcanic mountain that towers over the city. The mountain sits in Mount Royal Park, a sprawling green space, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the landscape architect who also designed New York’s famous Central Park. Walking up to the summit of Mount Royal through one of many routes through the park, especially in the middle of the night, is an unforgettable experience.
