Churches · Landmarks · Parks
Quebec's Metropolis
Quebec's economic and cultural capital, Montreal serves as the province's major point of entry, known for its rich history and high standard of living. In an area that gets long and very cold winters, vacations in Montreal can be extremely rewarding for impassioned lovers of snow sports. Favorite wintertime things to do in Montreal include cheering for the local hockey team, sledding down nearby snowy hills, and ice-skating at one of the city's many parks. Visitors preferring warmer-weather activities enjoy kayaking and river surfing on the Saint Lawrence River, and cycling across a network of smoothly paved paths. Host to a staggering number of festivals, Montreal remains a great place to attend musical performances, theater shows, and fireworks competitions. Take stress off the schedule by using our Canada trip planner.

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
