Last May, I spent 2 1/5 days in Montreal to visit the city for the first time but also catch with an old friend. While it was a quick trip, we covered the Montreal basics: Old Montreal and the Old Port, Mont Royal, Notre Dame Basilica, the Biodome and Botanical Garden, and of course a good poutine!
We stayed at Anne ma Soeur Anne, a very cute hotel on Saint Denis street.
It all started here. Friday night Poutine at La Banquise (open 24/7!).
Biodome, Botanical Gardens and Insectarium.
Cute place off Place Jacques Cartier.
Walking around the Old Harbor and we found Cirque du Soleil! We lucked out and got tickets for the afternoon show; it was ah-ma-zing!
Climbed up, up, up Mont Royal and enjoyed the view. Make sure to catch the “tam-tams” down the mount, by the monument on Avenue du Parc.
And before I knew it, I was back to the States. View from the top, flying over Westchester County and Southern Connecticut very closely!
