    A hidden gem in November!

    I had so much fun at my first time in Montreal! I'm from the south USA so I did not really know anything about the city before I went. I really liked how Montreal is truly a bilingual city. Old Montreal was a cool place to spend the day at. So many great restaurants and shops. Montreal is also a very safe city. The Casino on the island has something for everyone if you like to gamble. This is also a great city to travel alone to. The local bars are great, and I will definitely return soon!

    Insider Tip:Buy a 3-day STM metro pass, hike Mt. Royal, visit Old Montreal, and walk through McGill University.

    Insider Tip:Get out and explore, Notre dame cathedral is highly recommended.

    Weekend in Montreal

    Nice city with great architect. Unfortunately, I love eating fast food when I'm travelling and Montreal is not a very good place for unique fast food.

    Insider Tip:Get a 1 day pass for metro it will be a lot cheaper if you use metro a lot
