10. Run/walk/bike up Mount Royal to the observatory in the summer or fall
No matter if green or autumn-coloured leaves grace the trees on the path up towards the top of Mount Royal, the foliage is a sight to behold. The view of the city at the top is even better.
11. Have a steamie (or three) at the Montreal Pool Room
You won't find a single pool table at this Montreal greasy spoon, but what the Montreal Pool Room lacks in advertised billiard equipment, it makes up for in amazing hot dogs. Open since 1912, Montreal Pool Room is the place to get a steamie, and being located right in the heart of Downtown (and across the street from Cafe Cleopatra, an equally famous strip club) the clientele is always an interesting mix of strangers.
12. Cook a whole meal from foods purchased at Jean-Talon Market
The Montreal food scene isn't just about restaurants and a trip to Jean-Talon Market will quickly show you that. If cooking isn't your thing, then just munch out at the many delicious vendors to be found at the market.
