Canada’s Capital of Cool

As the epitome of the Quebecois lifestyle, Montreal is unabashedly laid-back, cool and packed with thrilling sights. Among the most popular things to do in Montreal, you will find everything from wondrous theme parks, fantastically immersive zoo’s, urban surfing and magnificent architecture to boot. The city is of course also home to world-class art museums and parks aplenty, though it is the charmingly urban atmosphere that permeates the entire city, which will eventually draw you in.

It’s present when you’re having brunch at Beauty’s Luncheonette, when you’re browsing handcrafted goods at the city’s many designer boutiques, and when you kick back with a cup of coffee from any of Montreal’s stellar cafés. The same can be said for the city’s vibrant nightlife: a blend of sleek jazz clubs, retro dance halls, world-class discos and cocktail bars serving inventive mixtures, there is something unique on offer all night long no matter your preferences.

Fine Dining, Laid-Back Delicacies and Everything in Between

A city known equally for parades and poutine, Montreal restaurants are as festive as they are adept at creating delicious dishes. And while there are a great many excellent dining experiences to be had in town, a few are just a cut above the rest. Among our very favourites is restaurant Manitoba, which serves up an ever-changing menu in accordance with the seasons and availability of local produce for a unique fine dining experience.

As for less complicated places to eat in Montreal, you will have your pick from a huge pool of delicious eateries whether you are in the mood for steak, international cuisine or a bistro style dinner. Pro tip: Many of the city’s favourite establishments also offer world-class breakfast.

A Happening Metropolis

It pays off to check the city event schedule before planning your next trip to Montreal. The city sees a wealth of grand events take place every year, and timing your visit just right will go a long way in creating memories to last a lifetime. If you have the opportunity, you certainly shouldn’t miss out on celebrating Jean-Baptiste Day in June, or the International Jazz Festival in July, just to name a few. But whenever you visit, one thing is certain: Montreal will no doubt make a lasting impression on you.
