Montreal is a modern and colorful city offering the perfect blend of historic buildings, modern structures, and skyscrapers. Below ground, another city exists, where the extremes of heat and cold are unknown. To the west and north of downtown are mainly English speaking commercial and residential neighborhoods, centered around Westmount. To the east and north are French speaking quarters, notably Outremont and Plateau Mont-Royal. In between are the many dialects and cultures of residents and business people from around the globe.
Montreal, home to a third of the population of the province of Quebec, occupies about one-third (60 square miles) of the island of Montreal, which is part of the Hochelaga Archipelago. The island is situated in the St. Lawrence River near where it joins the Ottawa River. At the city's center is a 764-foot hill called Mont-Royal, from which the city takes its name. Nearby rise more mountains: the Laurentides (the Laurentians), the oldest mountain range in the world.
The foothills of the Appalachian Mountains separate Quebec from the United States and add to the province’s beauty. Two cultural traditions live side by side throughout and in the nine provinces of English Canada, but the blending occurs in a particularly intense fashion in Montreal.
Montreal's restaurants are known for their fine and varied cuisine and their reasonable prices. The city is accented with many beautiful parks and gardens. The huge Parc du Mont Royal offers year round recreational opportunities including walking, picnicking, jogging, horseback riding, bicycling, tobogganing, ice skating, and cross-country skiing. The jazz and art scenes immediately engage the visitor, and the nightlife is unrivaled in its zest and variety.
Montreal is a city of culture, tradition, excitement and promise. It is culturally diverse and always interesting. It is a place to visit with much to discover. There is always yet another delightful corner of this fascinating, fun city to explore.
