Cities like Montreal don't happen very often. By day, Montreal bubbles with Eurocharm and North American pizzazz. After dark, its nightlife sizzles with creativity and abandon. It's the city of 100 nations, all lured by Montreal's intoxicating mix of Gallic tradition and "joie de vivre".
Montreal's charm lies in its relaxed atmosphere rather than its star attractions. Nonetheless, this city has managed to carve out a place for itself as Quebec's economic and cultural center. Perhaps the most rewarding way to explore it all is to just throw yourself into the mix and let the crowds carry you along. No matter what you do, you'll certainly end your stay in Montreal with one overwhelming desire: to return.
