Where To Stay, Shop, And Spa In Montreal

Festival MURAL on Boulevard Saint-Laurent in Montreal. Eva Blue/ Visit Montreal
If you seek to be filled with joie de vivre, consider a visit to MontrĂ©al (sometimes affectionately referred to as ‘Petit Paris’): it is an ideal spot for Americans cautiously seeking to reunite with their wanderlusting travails. Compared with the potential stress of making the jump over the Atlantic, this city is geographically close, accessible by air, by train – by cruise lines – and still offers that quintessentially old-world romance, robust culture, and heritage of Europe.
