Wondering Where to Wander in Montreal?

 

I explored Montreal for the first time during the Travel Classics Montreal conference in May 2018 during Montreal’s birthday (17 May 1642).

Last summer for Canada’s 150 birthday,  I wrote several articles for USA Today 10 Best about 10 unique places to visit10 places for an outdoor adventure and 10 sites to explore the history of Canada. These three articles were part of a group that created 150 things for Canada’s 150th! I have been working my way through all of these incredible things to do in Canada.

For our pre-conference experience, I stayed at Monville Hotel which had literally just opened its doors and was centrally located so we could walk to many attractions or for our dinner! I loved meeting their resident robot.

We arrived into Montreal by Rail after several days in Québec City.

Where did we go? What did we see?

*Museum of Fine Art

*Mount Royal

*HA with Francisco Randez:  They have two locations and great food

*Studio 16 and the Street Art Festival

*Pointe A Calliere

From my USA TODAY 10best article: “Most people don’t know that Montreal is one of the oldest cities in Canada, let alone North America. So, the Pointe-à-Callière Museum showcases Canadian history through both permanent and temporary exhibitions.  Permanent exhibitions provide insight on how Montreal began, how it was built and how archaeologists uncovered what the city was like before human settlement.”

*Cite Memoire for Montreal at Night definitely see as many of the 60 projections as you can!

*Escondite! I loved this Mexican restaurant! Thank you to Bernardo and the entire team Vive Mexico!

A highlight of my trip was discovering Jewish Montreal with Mélissa Simard on her Jewish food tour.

I tried something new: AERIAL YOGA. My instructor, Veronique´ Jalbert, at Club Sportif Maa was fantastic! I cannot wait to find my 2nd class.
