I haven’t fallen in love with a city so instantly like I did Montreal in a long, long time. It was truly love at first sight and during my visit in late October, I knew one thing for sure: I can’t wait to go back!
Nestled in the province of Quebec, Montreal still feels very French – particularly Old Montreal – and has so much to offer in regards to art, food, culture and outdoor spaces. We were amazed to learn the city hosts more than 200 festivals every year and we delighted in the friendliness of the people and the walkability of the various neighborhoods.
Throughout our short stay my friend and I found ourselves plotting a return in the summer when we can enjoy the various outdoor parks and plazas and sidewalk dining options we just missed during our Fall arrival.
