Montreal Travel Guide

There’s an undeniable austerity to the city of Montreal, especially come wintertime — a season when cold, gray facades contrast a thick blanket of snow. But the city’s vibrancy shines through any time of year with its myriad murals, vibrant light shows, electric party scene, festival atmosphere, and creative community. Come spring and summer, the city is abuzz with outdoor pubs, street-side musicians, river strolls, and plentiful outdoor activities.

This is a city where the legacy of Montreal’s first people — the Saint Lawrence River Iroquoians — lives on amid archaeological and artistic representation. It is a place that welcomed immigrants far and wide, and where over 200 cultures continue to live in close quarters, creating cross-cultural communities and inspirational enclaves.

It may sound like magic, but you can find it all in this Quebecois city.

Welcome to Montreal.
