The Best Of Montreal At A Glance
Looking for a fabulous destination that offers all the best elements of civilization and nature? Montreal is definitely worth considering, and it offers a wealth of attractions that make it one of the most rewarding destinations in the world. No matter what you are looking for in a tourist destination, Montreal will surely have it all for you and then some.
One of the best things about Montreal is how the city manages to blend the most beautiful natural and manmade attractions with generous helpings of culture and entertainment. From galleries and museums to clubs and restaurants, the city offers a vibrant and exciting atmosphere that you simply will not find anywhere else in the world.
If this is your first time in the city, a good place to begin your adventure is at the waterfront of the St. Lawrence River, where you can arrange for a leisurely cruise and take in the gorgeous sights. You could then check out the aptly named Olympic Park, which is a fabulous tribute to the 1976 Olympic Games that were held right in the city. From here, it is only a few minutes away from the famed Notre-Dame Basilica, which is one of the city’s most outstanding contributions to architecture.
Don’t forget to explore the city proper as well, which is easily accessible via the metro that plies the Honoré-Beaugrand route. After disembarking at Pie IX Station, a short walk will take you to the fascinating Botanical Garden & Insectarium, where you can get a firsthand look at various types of flora and fauna from all around the world.
Don’t forget to pack a pair of comfortable walking shoes, as Montreal is a city that is best enjoyed up close and firsthand. Alternately, you can also rent a bike from one of the city’s many rental shops, which will give you the same unique experience with a bit more mobility.
Montreal is a great place to visit at any time of the year, but you might want to schedule your trip for the spring or summer in order to get the best that the outdoors have to offer. That being said, fall is also a great time to drop by, and you will surely be awed by the fabulous autumn foliage that rival the best sights that the word has to offer.
