“ AS THE MOST POPULOUS CITY IN QUEBEC, MONTREAL HAS A LOT TO OFFER. NAMED AFTER MOUNT ROYAL, MONTREAL WAS ORIGINALLY NAMED VILLE-MARIE, WHICH TRANSLATES TO ‘CITY OF MARY.’ “
Although English is commonly spoken, French is actually the official language. In 1976, Montreal hosted the Summer Olympic Games, and it continues to host other major events, including the Canadian Grand Prix of Formula One racing and the Montreal International Jazz Festival. When looking for an amazing place to visit, Montreal is hard to beat. Along with an abundance of international events, this eclectic city is known for its fine French-Canadian cuisine, historic streets, and vibrant arts and culture scene. While there, you definitely want to experience the central landmark, Mont Royal. You can also enjoy a picnic at Beaver Lake, rollerblade along the canal in Old Port, or enjoy the bar scene on Boulevard St.-Laurent or Rue Crescent. Not only is this an amazing city for walking, you can get around via rental car, public transportation, taxi, and by renting a bicycle. In addition to the quaint boutique-style accommodations, there are a number of prestigious hotels, including Hotel Bonaventure Montreal, Novotel Montreal Centre, and the Hotel Zero 1.
