Hey Lovelies! Visiting Montreal went by too fast, and Im actually missing this city! When we had landed in Pierre Trudeau Airport and began our journey to our hotel I actually found Montreal to be an ugly place. I saw a lot of industrial sights, and massive concrete overpasses that marred the landscape. However, my first impressions changed once we ended up in the area of Sherbrooke street where our Hotel was situated. (I think this is considered the business section of town) and it’s a perfect place to be if you enjoy walking, and exploring the city on foot. This area is nearby to McGill University, and not too far away from Notre Dame Cathedral, as well as places to sit down and eat along the way. Enjoy!

One of my favourite places to eat for breakfast foods (even well into lunch hours) was at ‘Universel’ on their outdoor section. Accords is pretty, but be aware as it is a pricey place to eat if you opt for A La Carte with wine pairings. A fun experience and romantic experience if you enjoy taking hours to enjoy your food, and wine with good company. You can also get away with brining in McDonalds into certain pubs once their kitchen has closed…but as long as you order drinks!

Souvenirs, Experiences & Novelties
Old Montreal is one of the hottest spots to shop for souvenirs to bring home to family! I picked up a sweatshirt that says ‘Montreal’, there’s also a lot of Native souvenir shops, and little patios and places to sit down and order food- and Ice Cream! You can also take a horse drawn carriage ride through old Montreal. (It’s pretty popular)
The Bay (My favourite store in the entire world…notice it’s French spelling in Montreal.)
SightSeeing On A Time Crunch
Notre Dame cathedral is worth a visit, and from their you can make your way to Old Montreal! St.Catherine street is the place to be for nightlife, and Sherbrooke Street is nearby to a lot of shopping destinations including Eaton Center. You might even pass by the Olympic Torch, parks that resemble Europe with fountains and beautiful trees and flowers in bloom. Enjoying a coffee is a must while you walk!
