Beach Club – Point Calumet, Montreal, Qc. This little island is a 45 minute scenic drive from downtown Montreal, and it’s honestly one of the best activities to do in Montreal. It’s open everyday of the week but the best day is definitely Sunday. The crowd is a great at Beach Club, and most people gather around the outdoor dance floor on the mega deck to electronic music.
Things to do at Beach Club:
– Wakeboarding around the island
– Swimming in either the surrounding lake or the swimming pool
– Relaxing on one of their many lounge chairs on the beach
– Enjoy some Drinks & BBQ-style food
– Listen or dance to Electronica or Hip Hop music (depending on your tastes, there’s two sides to please just about everybody!)
If you really like big crowds, then go on the days where they have big Dj’s like Armin Van Buerren, but if a chill vibe is what you’re looking for; choose a regular day so avoid being bothered by hot, sweaty men! Check out this link here for Google Maps info.
Best Part? $10-$20 Entry / per person.
Beautiful Parc Mount Royal —> http://montrealtamtams.com/
Tam Tams has a very diverse crowd and lots of culture. The best part: you can go there for free! This family and dog friendly, 420 inspired event is held every single Sunday when weather permits, downtown Montreal. You can walk just 5 minutes from the hustle and bustle of the downtown city, to the Parc Mount Royal, for which the city was named after. This park is the base of a nice mountain that provides the city dwellers with fresh air and large, green and wide open spaces to enjoy. On Sundays, you can usually find half the city, we’re talking thousands of people, peacefully enjoying some lazy outdoor time to the sound of drums. Check it out when you’re looking for something to do -> Corner of Avenue Du Parc & Avenue Des Pins, Centreville, Montreal.
* On this particular day, there were thousands of people on the mountain, looking for some fresh air and sunshine after that long hibernation. WOW, we have never seen so many people there. See that statue in the centre of the photograph? It’s barely visible because of the sunshine … That statue is where the Tam Tams Jam centres. There are crowds of hundreds maybe even thousands of people, each with their own unique instrument or drums, largely participating in making music, together. There’s some local artisans there too, lined up Flee Market-style around the centre of the action. Not to mention the over abundance of the Dicky-Dee!
