Marvel at Montreal, a multi-faceted and photogenic metropolis in southeastern Canada. Set on the St Lawrence River, this chic island city boasts iconic architecture, eclectic dining, entertainment, and nightlife, along with vibrant festivals showcasing jazz, comedy, and avant-garde art. Among Montreal’s urban gardens, Mount Royal Park is the undisputed green heart offering picnic spots, historic sites, woody trails, and two belvederes that overlook the sprawling cityscape. Past the Promenade Fleuve-Montagne is Montreal’s French colonial Old Town, highlighted by the Gothic Revival Notre Dame Basilica, and the landmark Pointe-à-Callière where Montreal was founded! Shady streets, murals, and colorful buildings dot the hip neighborhoods of Plateau Mont-Royal and Mile End, which have a large concentration of creatives and are ideal for people-watching. Across town, pedestrianized boulevards have trendy homegrown shops, while atmospheric public spaces host seasonal pop-up markets. Between the five-ecosystem Biodôme and Insectarium, the artsy Underground City, and the standing wave at Habitat 67, there are enough reasons to spend a while in Montreal.
