Leaving Tomorrow to Montreal

Hi , I am from Florida and I am leaving tomorrow to Montreal on a business/pleasure trip for 4 days. My question is regarding the clothes... do you think I need to take some turtleneck sweaters or will a leather jacket be enough for the evenings?
Thanks so much!

I don't think you will need a turtleneck or a jacket. It has been really hot there. I would just take a sweater for evenings. How long will you be there?

JMWF: Why so rude? She asked a simple question.

i didn't mean it maliciously, apologise if it came off like that


was more laughing at the perception of us Canadian's (ie: igloo's, parka's, etc...) by those in the southern states

Well, here in Calgary we've had cold rain for the past 3 days and I am indeed wearing a turtleneck sweater as I type this.

I don't know if Montreal has the same tendency of Calgary for wide variations in weather regardless of time of year, but it's always a good idea to be prepared for variations in weather when travelling.

A jacket or sweater at night maybe, but turtlenecks no.

Thanks for the input. I did take a light sweater for the evenings which worked out perfect. I had a great time in Montréal and the Rogers Cup tournament was fantastic!

We were up in Montreal for the weekend for the Rogers Cup, too. We saw the Federer v.Stepanek semi-final in person but the Nadal v. Djokovic semi-final and the exciting final only on TV.

for anyone who is a tennis fan the Rogers Cup is a great tournament to see. The stadium is in Parc Jarry.

This year as an added benefit there was a festival in Little Italy along St. Laurent and Dante (very nearby), too.

As a local, august is my favorite month to enjoy the city, and the tennis is part of that.

Glad you all enjoyed your weekend !!!
