Visiting Montreal

file000518379691

I have yet to visit Montreal. We are planning a trip in the upcoming months for our sons Track & Field competition. I hear so many great things about this historical city and all of its culture. I can not wait to check it out for myself.  Montreal is the largest city in the province of Quebec after all. There is not doubt there will be a little of everything for everyone to enjoy while we are there. With many people in the province speaking English and French I am excited to hear the the stories of the city from the locals. The city is Canada’s centre for French language television productions, radio, theatre, film, multimedia, and print publishing. Montreal’s many cultural communities have given it a distinct local culture. Since we are heading there in the Spring, I will be sure to check out the scenery and some of the events the city hosts. 

Recently I was introduced to a website that helps those shopping for houses in Montreal. I wanted to share it with you all as I know many of you are located not far from there. And if you are, who knows what the future holds. This site will surely be a valuable resource for many who are lookiong to buy a home in the area.

I am not sure what I am looking forward to more on our visit, the food or the entertainment and night life.

These competitions are usually very long days so I may have no time at all to get out and sight see. I hope we do though, it looks and sounds amazing! What are the must see places and attractions you suggest I check out with the family?

    I can not suggest any places or things to do in Montreal Kim, but I will say I am jealous, LOL. It has been many years since I visited Quebec. You will have a wonderful time no matter what you get to do. Good luck to your superstar son!!

  4. Definitely make sure you go to Notre Dame -it is stunning. Go to Old Montreal -cobblestone streets, little cafes, fun shops. I have not been to Montreal in years but I am sure those would be unchanged.

    Kim, Please let me know if you come to Montreal. I would love to meet up with you. There is so much to see and do here

  6. I grew up in Montreal and lived there until I was 23 years old. To me, Montreal is still home 🙂 I highly recommend visiting Vieux Montreal, le Vieux Port, Mont Royal, the Biodome, and if you like shopping, downtown Montreal is fab! Fun for just walking around and checking out the sights! Plus, Montreal is the mecca for all good food 🙂 You can get any type of cuisine imaginable! I'm a bit biased, right? 😉 If you need recommendations, don't hesitate to drop me an email!
