Got your plane ticket locked in and your bags ready to go? Read on for a few basic Montreal tips before you head off.
To help you find your feet, Montreal is located 100 miles (161 kilometers) east of the well-known city of Ottawa.
There are 1,600,000 friendly locals that reside in this corner of Monteregie.
Luxury rooms, luxurious sheets and sophisticated service is what you'll find when you spend your nights at the Ritz-Carlton, Montréal (1228 Sherbrooke Street West) or the Hotel Le St-James Montréal (355 Saint-Jacques Street). However, if you doubt you'll see much of your suite, why not book a cheaper option like the Loft Hotel (334 Terrasse Saint-Denis) or the Bienvenue Bed & Breakfast (3950, avenue Laval)?
Make the most of your time in Montreal and stop by Notre Dame Basilica. With both the LikeAHotel - Les lofts, Vieux Montreal and the W Montreal within walking distance, you won't have any reason not to go see it!
Experience the true essence of this city hub by checking out attractions like the Biosphere and Christ Church Cathedral. If you want more options, Mount Royal Park and the Montreal Botanical Garden are well worth seeing too.
A great way to get an authentic taste of a destination's culture is to take in its lively marketplaces. Browse through the products and shop like the local people do at Bonsecours Market. Need some more options? If theme parks make your heart beat faster, you're in luck! Whether you're up for a good thrill or you prefer a more laid-back pace, La Ronde Six Flags has the perfect ride for you. And that's not all. Love all things art? Immerse yourself in some interesting works and try to make out the story behind them at Museum of Contemporary Art.
