Just for Laughs, Just for Fun -- Get to Montreal for a Great Weekend Trip

Vacation rentals are going fast for
the Osheago Music and Arts Festival.
Montreal's a timeless city filled with history, culture, fine dining, and an abundance of outdoor activities. And this weekend, it's home to one of the biggest and best comedy festivals in the world.

Just for Laughs runs from today (July 25) through Sunday July 29, with one final event scheduled for Tuesday, July 31. Headliners and hosts included Aziz Ansari of Parks and Recreation fame, Lewis Black, Joel Mchale, Bob Saget and more.

If you can't make it this weekend, then try any other time throughout the year. Montreal is a year-round city, with lots going on no matter when you visit. If fashion and design or music and arts are more your style, then try visiting Montreal the first weekend in August. Both the Montreal Fashion & Design Festival and the Osheago Music and Arts Festival are happening then.

Book your vacation rental now. Perfect Places is excited to announce 15 new Montreal vacation rentals from Prestantia Management in the heart of this timeless city. Deborah Mermelstein of Presentia says the properties are close to all the fun and excitement has to offer.

Many fun, exciting activities, right
outside your door.
"Open your door and you're on Lachine Canal. Great restaurants are within walking distance, as are many other shopping and entertainment options." She said she's been getting  a lot of inquiries about vacation rentals during the Osheago Music and Arts Festival, so act quickly.

If you can't make it to Montreal in the next few weeks, then try visiting in January for Igloofest and enjoy four electrifying nights of emerging electronic music and an enchanting, other-worldly igloo village.

Plenty to do and see no matter when you visit. While in Montreal, be sure to visit the Atwater market for a great selection of fresh produce, meats, fish, plenty of organic choices and every kind of gourmet treat you could want. You'll find homemade ice cream, wine tasting, local and international cuisine, cooking demonstrations and more. Lachine Canal activities include kayaking, canoeing, electric boats and on-shore fun such as bike rentals, life-size chess games, roller blading and more.

As a truly international city, Montreal features some of the best dining you'll find anywhere. Try Joe Beef, the Liverpool House, Limon, Burgundy Lion Pub, Sans Menu, Bitoque and more. There are also many areas of the city that are worth exploring for dining, nightlife, shopping or just people watching. Try Plateau Montreal, St. Laurent Street, St. Denis Street and Downtown Montreal, including Crescent Street.

Montreal is also the home of the Cirque de Soleil, so you'll find plenty of opportunities to see this amazing, one-of-a-kind show.

And be sure to explore Mont Royal, a mountain in the center of the city from which Montreal takes its name. You'll find plenty of outdoor activities throughout the year.
