Activity Guide and Information for Montreal

One of North America’s most stylish and forward-thinking cities, but it's also the oldest – and there’s no better place to discover the city’s rich history than in its aptly named Old Montreal neighborhood. At the center of town within an easily walkable few blocks, with quaint cobblestone streets, lovely early architecture and fascinating historical sites blended with trendy shops, ultramodern art galleries and exceptional restaurants. A blend of French and English speaking locals enhance this city’s exciting international flavor, but the city really lures visitors with the 19th century architecture of Old Montréal and nearly 100 annual festivals including one of the world’s top jazz fests.
Montreal celebrates its 375th Anniversary in 2017.  CLICK HERE for 2017 activities.
