Montreal Botanical Garden

To finish the weekend, hop in an Uber and take a quick 15 minute drive to the Montréal Botanical Garden: a magnificent 190 acres of thematic gardens and greenhouses just outside the heart of the city. This space is so impressive, in fact, that in 2008 it was designated a National Historical Site of Canada. Pay $21 for the day ($36 if you want to visit the Montréal Insectarium next door — recommend!) and set off winding through the garden’s themed greenhouses. Outside, find the cultural gardens. If you visit September-October, see the property set aglow while celebrating one of the best Montréal events: Gardens of Light, a massive and bright paper lantern exhibit that lights up the Chinese, Japanese and First Nations exhibits.
