Traveling to Montreal

Places I Want to See in Montreal

I am about to leave for a weeklong trip to Montreal and I am publishing this post for two reasons. The first is to let all of my readers know that I will be posting much more sporadically over the next week, and the second is to talk about the places that I want to go in Montreal. I'm hoping that anyone who has been here in the past will let me know what they think of my ideas! I realize that I will have limited time once I arrive and so I will need to pare down my list a bit. Here are my ideas!

 Mont Royal Park

This park I feel is a must. It is a huge hilltop that overlooks the downtown of the city. I really hope that it is as pretty as it has seemed from pictures. The name Montreal actually is said to come from this park.

Musee de la Basilique Montreal

Despite the fact that I am not a religious person, I do admire cathedrals for their architectural beauty. I have been to many nice churches in the past, but the photos of this one seem amazing! I really want to check it out.

Old Montreal

Old Montreal was the first part of the city to be built. Roads here are cobblestoned and there is a strong French flair. This is consistently ranked as one of the must-see parts of the city!

Montreal Botanical Garden

I am usually not super interested in things like botanical gardens, but I have been recommended to see this spot. I am excited to see if the gardens are as interesting as they seem to be from pictures!

Olympic Stadium

Fortunately my hotel is right next to the stadium so I do not think I will be able to miss it. It looks great again from pictures, but I wonder if there is anything interesting inside or if it just looks nice from the outside. I have also heard that you can ride up the tower for panoramic views of the city!

Underground City

This is my final attraction on my list and I may miss it. Montreal seems to rave about the underground city as a way to keep warm in the winter but as of my last check, the weather looks like it will be great for my trip so I may not want to venture underground!

I will say that I am proud of myself for being able to make this list! I haven't actually been yet but I was able to think of these places from memory, so hopefully I will have a successful trip once I arrive! Let me know if I'm missing anything important!
