There’s never been a better time to visit Canada.
Montreal feels like a European city, minus the jet lag (depending on where you’re coming from). Sitting on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, the city’s streets are lined with a mix of centuries-old architecture and modern skyscrapers that feel surprisingly cutting edge. The juxtaposition between the old and new world—sleek boutiques next to decrepit Chinese restaurants, minimalist coffee shops tucked behind decades-old markets—makes for an enviably charming city that is endlessly fun to explore.
