“I feel like family in Québec and Montréal, and by the way, Montréal is my
favourite city in the world! It’s the only place that combines all the good things
about Europe and America, with none of the bad!”
–Holly Cole, Jazz Singer

July and August is warm and often humid during the day – can reach the 80s, although nights by the water or at higher altitudes are cooler. June and September ar e more comfortable or fresh during the day and sometimes cold at night. September is the best month for the foliage. Montreal can be visited any time of the year, but the Jazz Festival is offered only in late June.
