We've never been to Montreal before so was really surprised how fantstic the place is. It's definitely the perfect place for an 'adults' getaway weekend.
It's small so you might not need more than 3 or 4 days to get around but we had a blast checking out the place and had some real surprises.
1/ Montreal people are skinny compared to New Yorkers.
2/ Montreal people are way more fashionable than most New Yorkers (the guys there as well), I was stunned with how good most of them looked in comparison.
3/ The cars are all normal size and very similar to what you would find in Sydney (lots of asian cars as well).
4/ Restaurants are way cheaper, our night in the jazz bar only cost $110 for both of us including music cover charge, meal, deserts and more than a few cocktails.
5/ I was surprised that i think i might actually miss the hustle and bustle of New York...... not sure how that bodes with me moving back to Sydney.
I've uploaded a heap of photos and videos here along with some blog posts following this one about individual places we found and liked.
