Escape the cold weather for an afternoon courtesy of the Montreal Botanical Garden.

Thanks to the Garden’s latest exhibit, “Under the Palms and Banana Trees,” Montrealers can be transported to the warm, southern tropics without leaving the city.

Relax in the lush warmth of the Main Exhibition Greenhouse and enjoy an urban tropical experience like no other. The exhibit features exotic flora, fauna, and even fruit. See as pineapples, mangoes, passion fruit, lychees, and more grow in their natural habitat.
