When I told people we were headed to Montreal for Christmas Vacation I got a lot of quizzical responses. Yes, it is cold in Montreal in winter, but Canada knows how to do cold weather well and there’s lots to make Montreal merry for the whole family.
Montreal is a popular destination for people looking for a taste of the Old World any time of year. French is the native language as well as the culture and cuisine in all of the Quebec Province. A trip to Montreal means great food, great museums, and, surprisingly, lots of outdoor fun, even in winter. Especially during the holidays, Montreal becomes a sparkling city of lights with lots of wintry fun.
