Montreal is a perfect place to escape for the weekend. Known for its creative art scene and its European feel, Montreal has lots to offer for anyone who needs a weekend getaway. To get the most from a weekend trip, use this three-day Montreal itinerary.
In Montreal, the largest city in Quebec, the more eccentric, the better. Montreal thrives on its fresh creative scene, and it’s easy to see why people come here from all over the world.
The city sits on an island surrounded by the St. Lawrence and is still an economic centre in Canada.
Toronto never seemed to me like a place to travel to, until I started travelling to other countries. People from all over the world want to know what to do and see within Canada’s biggest (but not capital!) city. I can see the attraction of the city: it’s large, there are lots of things to do, it’s by Lake Ontario, it’s multicultural.
I had completely changed our trip plans because of a Pinterest picture of Hallstatt, Austria.
My whirlwind road trip through four countries in four days wasn’t supposed to extend that far east. But one picture made me completely change our itinerary. Visiting this stunning mountain-side village was completely worth it.
My feet hit the cobblestone street, a little sore from the day’s walk. I wasn’t really paying attention to where I was going, my eyes moving back and forth from the beautiful doors to the flower boxes hanging from windows to the gorgeous roofs of the historic buildings. I looked around and realized I made it to my destination, Place Royale, the embodiment of Old Quebec City.
(Updated 2019) With mountains that rise to touch the sky and water so blue and cold, there is no comparing the beauty of the Canadian Rockies. Jasper National Park and Banff National Park are the pride and joy of the Canadian National Park system and see millions of visitors each year. Make sure you stop at these must-see places along the Icefields parkway on your next road trip through Jasper and Banff national parks.
