That’s right, the hubs and I will be spending a long weekend with our neighbors to the north for our second anniversary in September. Let me tell you, I am absurdly excited. Why, you ask? Let’s review:
1. Vieux Montreal!
Cobblestones & fancy old buildings & outdoor cafes? Come on. It’s like Vieux Montreal was made for two lovebirds. You know, from what I read. I’ll let you know if it’s true come September.
France has played a pretty big role in our relationship for a few reasons, so it will be exciting to pay hommage to one of our favorite countries in this little North American version. Though they speak English in the majority of Canada, I won’t lie to you: one of the biggest draws of Quebec was the chance to spend a weekend practicing my bonjours & bonsoirs.
I have yet to try this Canadian delicacy, and it’s perfect that my first time will be in its birthplace. There is a very real chance that I will find La Banquise on the first day and not leave until Sunday. You’ve been warned.
Ok, so the real reason for this post? Advice-seeking. It’s our first time in Montreal (my first time in Canada!) and we have three days to do it right. Though I have a feeling that it will be one of those cities where we can get hopelessly lost and still feel like we saw it all, but I don’t want to risk it.
What are our must-sees?
P.S. A special thanks to RoomKey! I won a gift card to any Hyatt at TBEX and the hubs and I are pretty pumped to stay here.
