Even at home Montrealers are finding unique things to do online with friends and in their homes with their families and roommates. Tourisme Montréal has compiled a list of some of the best online activities coming out of Montréal right now, including virtual city tours, music, games and more. We'll also be posting more things to do as they come on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

This season's at-home highlights

Winter festival MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE celebrates the city's creativity and culture from March 4 to March 28, with amazing food, in-person and online activities, and all kinds of virtual events for all-nighter Nuit Blanche on March 13!

Explore Montréal through its public art on virtual tours with Art public Montréal or add a little summer to your day with the MURAL Festival App and 360° views of past MURAL Fests. The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and other museums feature virtual tours and new art-oriented ideas for all ages. And add beauty to your home and self-care routine with these aesthetic Montréal finds.

Most restaurants, bakeries and cafés are open for take-out and delivery, so whether you're craving a warm bagel from St-Viateur Bagel of Fairmount Bagel Bakery , upping your morning game with locally roasted coffee, or planning a special meal from your favourite restaurant, there’s no time like the present to support local eateries! As for sugar shack season, you can still indulge in the tradition from late-February to April: order take-out or delivery from Labonté de la Pomme, Sucrerie de la Montagne or call up your favourite cabane à sucre to see if they're taking orders.

The beat of Montréal goes on at home too: electronic music festival Igloofest goes virtual with party tunes from international and local artists; check out playlists and live shows from POP Montréal International Music Festival watch and listen  to the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal in concert throughout the season. And get moving with at-home workouts and classes by Montréal exercise pros.
