July is hot in this town. And I'm not talking about the weather. From a cinematic gore fest to outdoor dance steps and a slew of festivals and freebies peppering every single day, Montreal offers the ideal vacation and staycation location in July.

Just be prepared for crowds. It doesn't get crazy in Montreal like, say, in Florence or Rome come summer when locals try to escape their own hometowns for as long as they can to escape dreaded droves of turisti. But it does gets thick near Place des Arts this time of year. Yet, in spite of so many people pouring onto city centre squares, it's actually quite safe in Montreal compared to metropolises of comparable size.
