Over the weekend, I decided to take a spontaneous trip over to our neighbor, Canada. It took us 6 hours to reach Montréal. The drive wasn’t terrible at all because it allowed us to freely venture around without watching the time.

Montréal (originally called Ville-Marie, or “City of Mary”) is the largest city of Canadian providence. 

Checklist and recommendations:

  1. You want to make sure that you bring enough CAD as the USD is used as a 1:1 ratio – Example: 1 USD is equal to 1.38 CAD
  2. I would suggest walking and taking the metro everywhere! an unlimited weekend metro cost about $9.33 USD and lasts from Friday to Monday which isn’t a bad deal considering how much we pay for metro cards per ride here in NYC
  3. Check the currency exchange rate when you go shopping. The USD is now stronger than the CAD!
  4. Try doing things that are out of the way first, like going to Mont Royle and taking pics of the city then making your way to neighborhood explorations to check out shops and restaurants
  5. Definitely try to have coffee in a cute coffee shop in old Montreal I recommend Olive & Gourmando
  6. There is a lot of historical scenes, art, and boutiques to appreciate!
  7. Have fun!
