Save Place
Montreal, QC, Canada
This was the first year for the Snow Village and it was amazing. I thought it would be a few igloo looking structures where people would sleep for one night to tell their friends. Boy was I wrong, It was made up of many, many different snow...
Save Place
110 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, Montréal, QC H2Y 1T2, Canada
A church—or, at least, a small chapel—has stood on the site of the Basilica of Notre-Dame since shortly after Ville-Marie (Montréal's predecessor) was founded in 1642. The current building, however, dates to 1829 and was...
Save Place
Montreal, QC, Canada
Whenever I explore a new city I make it a point to wander through its markets. Not only do I enjoy such adventures for the food I sample, but I love seeing how food is displayed—I always find a beauty to the displays no matter how simple they may...

Montreal is a wonderful city and the Bixi bike sharing system (http://montreal.bixi.com/) allows one to venture further and see other parts of the city. As the sun set, the Palais comes alive at night providing a glowing example of modern...

1615 Rue Saint-Denis, Montréal, QC H2X 3K3, Canada
Coocoo for chocolate? Head over to the Boulevard Saint-Laurent location of this local chain and order the molten hot chocolate with a brownie. Or maybe the lava cake. Or how about a crêpe, lathered with hazelnut chocolate sauce and topped with a...

3575 Av du Parc Suite 5100, Montréal, QC H2X 3P9, Canada
Do as the locals do and head underground to get around. Taxis are expensive. Take the metro; it's so easy! My sister and I were recently exploring Montreal. To avoid paying for cabs, we both purchased a day pass on the metro for $8 each. It was...
Save Place
a 1C5, 446 Place Jacques-Cartier, Montréal, QC H2Y 3B3, Canada
Cabane a Sucre is a small shop in the middle of Place Jacques-Cartier, located in the heart of Old Montreal. On the cold December night I was in Montreal, their apple cider helped to warm my hands and body. I would also like to mention that the...
