Old Montreal is the area immediately surrounding the Old Port. It was the first developed part of the city of Montreal, as reflected through its architecture and narrow cobbled streets. Many of the more historically significant buildings are in this area of town, as well as the Champ-de-Mars, an old parade ground where citizens used to be able to come to enjoy the spectacle of public hangings. It is very tourist friendly. The Place Jacques Cartier, an open square leading from the town hall (Hôtel de Ville) down to the water, is the venue for shows at all times of the year. read more about Old Montreal

  • Montreal, H3H 1A2

"The mountain", as Mount-Royal Park is known to locals, is the largest green space on Montreal Island. It was designed by Olmstead, who also designed Central Park in New York City. Mount-Royal Park is the playground for the city. During the week people traipse up and down the paths constantly: cutting across the mountain to work, running late to class toward McGill University and just taking the time to enjoy the moments of privacy that the mountain's hidden paths offer. Sundays during the summer the East side of the Mount-Royal (near the statue) explodes with activity and music. Crowds gather to play music, lounge in the sun and relax with friends in the sweetly hazy heat. read more about Mount Royal Park

  • Quebec City, G1R 5H3

The Musée Nationale des Beaux-Arts du Québec, located on the Plains of Abraham, is one of the hidden gems of Quebec City. And while today it may offer world-class traveling exhibitions, and impressive permanent collections, the Musée Nationale des Beaux-Arts du Québec was once a prison for some of Quebec City's most hardened criminals. The Musée Nationale des Beaux-Arts du Québec offers prison tours in the prison annexe, which contrasts strongly with the art in the museum wing and the human misery that was once contained within its walls. It is always a great option whenever the weather is not cooperating. read more about Musée Nationale des Beaux-Arts du Québec

  • Montreal, H2L 3M6

The Parc Lafontaine is open year in and year out. In the summer time ducks and geese wait by the shores of the pond for passers-by to feed them, and in the winter time that same expanse of water is frozen over and turns into one of the city's largest skating rinks. Christmas lights are strung through the trees and softly-piped music keeps the beat as the skaters make their way around the rink. Yes, this is a great place for a date. read more about Parc Lafontaine
