What to do after school!
The birthplace of poutine – a mix of French fries, rich gravy and creamy cheese curds, it’s no surprise that Montreal is home to a delicious and diverse mix of cuisines. In fact, Montreal technically has more restaurants per capita than New York City.
Montreal has some of the world’s most renowned festivals (think Just for Laughs and International Jazz fest) and offers a diverse mix of cultural attractions and events. Must-see stops include gothic beauty Notre-Dame Basilica, Château Ramezay and Mount Royal Park.
The list of ways to move and unwind is lengthy, with options that include rollerblading around the seawall, ice skating at one of many rinks, curling, basketball at Kits Beach, tennis at one of the many courts throughout the city, golfing, world-class mountain biking, taking in an NHL hockey or international soccer game.
