Montreal, the second largest city in Canada, is a really exciting mix of French and Canadian cultures with French being widely spoken and the French influence very much alive and well. This has resulted in a city which is vibrant, outward looking, with some great food, bars, nightlife and things to do. The climate is cold during the winter, with temperatures in January being some 15 celsius, although in summer the temperature can be around 25 celsius on average. This makes it a great place to visit for snow sports in the winter. With almost 2 million people, it is not a small city, but it is one which is friendly and with plenty to do, whatever time of the year you visit. If you come in the summer months, be sure to make sure that your trip is timed to coincide with one of the many summer festivals which take place on an annual basis. These feature music, ranging from jazz to opera, dance, and the arts generally or any other artistic medium which you can think of. It really is a beacon for arts type activities.
Some of the year round attractions include the nightlife, where the bars don't shut till 3 am and you can find all manner of things to see and do at night, from the theatre, to dusky bars with some very cutting edge live music. Locals attest that the best of the nightlife is to be found in or around the St Laurent Boulevard which is known as The Main'. Excellent restaurants can also be found within this area, offering a very different mix of menus and cuisines. The French influence in terms of culinary offerings is very evident and has led to a very high standard of food being offered, at various price ranges. There is some great architecture to be seen in Montreal. Notre Dame doe Montreal Basilica is a world famous building and the Montreal City Hall is also a great place to see just how classical architecture can really work.
