Paris without the jetlag

For the US, Montreal is “Paris without the jetlag,” but travelers from other continents will find here a youthful, vibrant and creative city. At night, the heart of the city comes alive – people flood into the roads, and on Rue Saint Catherine, the throngs of pleasure seekers and givers remind of Amsterdam’s famous Red Light District. A vast underground complex of shops; exquisite food; and nightlife that resembles Miami’s South Beach; are only a few characteristics sought for by the avid travelers. Yet Montreal can be a family destination too, an exciting metropolis of extraordinary cultural legacy.
