When I first saw this tagline in an ad for visiting Montreal, I giggled to myself. We all know that New York is the city that never sleeps, right? Well it seems doubly true in Montreal. Despite freezing temperatures in the single digits (F), and a sunset at 3pm (!), no matter how late nor how early we went out, there was always something going on.
The metro was surprisingly efficient and well marked. And, to fight the winter blues, and they had these vibrant trees decorating the city outside some of the stops.
As the sun came down, the city lit up, and people were everywhere: walking, ice skating, and even snowboarding!

Montréal is known for their contemporary architecture. I think my favorite aspect of the city is how beautifully the historic Gothic structures nestle between glossy contemporary buildings.

Leaving Montréal took a little more effort than arriving, as we hit the post-holiday rush back to the states.
