Located in the Lautentian Mountains of Quebec, the village of Mont-Tremblant is practically a winter wonderland. With fresh snow covering the European style buildings and cobblestone streets, almost everyday for at least three months of the year, it’s pretty much a scene out of a fairytale. The city is home to two main urban centres, one within its world famous ski resort and another in the neighbourhood of Saint-Jovite. During my trip to Montreal over winter break, my parents and I went on a quick half a day trip up to Mont-Tremblant. In this post I’ll be writing about my short time there!
One of the oldest urban areas in North America, Old Montréal has a certain character and charm that is different from the rest of the city. This area, home to the beginnings of Montreal, dates all the way back to the discovery of Canada by the French. It is a major tourist attraction, being one of the most popular neighbourhoods in the city. With easily walkable and photogenic cobblestone streets, the stunning architecture of buildings blends well with the modern shops within them. Notre-Dame Basilica, Vieux-Port, Place Jacques-Cartier, and Place d’Armes are just some of the most well known monuments in the area. In this post, I’ll be giving you the ultimate guide to Old Montréal, showing you all the best spots and activities to do in the neighbourhood.
