You are walking down the street minding your own business and suddenly, two people come up to you and ask you questions like, “How many subway lines are there in Montreal?” or “At what time do bars close in Montreal?” Would you know the answers? A handful of lucky people actually did! As their reward, they were given one hour to get ready and jump on an Air Canada flight for an all-expenses-paid trip to the fabulous city, courtesy of Tourisme Montreal. Unfortunately, this is not going to be the case for the rest of us, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t make our own way to Montreal and enjoy everything this city has to offer. With so many great restaurants, accommodations, and festivals, there is something for everyone, no matter the budget. Some of our recommendations for restaurants are La Fabrique, Helena, and Buonanotte, but there are so many to choose from. If nightlife is more your thing, you might want to check out New City Gas. This large nightclub used to be a power plant that supplied part of the city with all of its electricity but now, it’s home to some of the best parties in Montreal. There are also so many festivals in Montreal that the city has been called the festival capital of North America. There are comedy festivals, music festivals, and of course, the festival of all festivals, the F1 Grand Prix. For three days, Montreal is alive with the colours of the most famous F1 teams, along with parties, and celebrations throughout the city. Montreal has a great deal to offer, so don’t forget to check out montrealoffer.com for spot-on deals next time you plan on visiting this vibrant and historical city.
