Here are three reasons why you should experience Montreal in winter...
1. IGLOOFEST - You've never heard electronic music before? No problem. This is a genre of sound that is best experienced in this rave-like venue. Before the trip, I tried to introduce myself to electronica through You Tube and Pandora, and honestly- I was not impressed. My tune changed last Saturday night when dancing in a friendly crowd of French Canadians and I became a huge fan! This experience are for those travelers looking for some unique excitement, dance, drink, and a colorful crowd. The event was hosting a "Best Ski Onsie" contest so we saw a lot of wonderful throw-back costumes. There were also games like mini-curling and tug-of-war.
2. City Walking - We walked around the old port, explored St. Joseph's Oratory, tried local beer/food, and tromped through snowy parks. The white snow against sparkling lights and European-like architecture painted a magical picture of Montreal.
If you are looking for a good pint in the Old Port, try "Les 3 Brasseurs" which has microbrew and a nice atmosphere.

We had a wonderful whirlwind weekend in wintery Quebec. I highly recommend a visit to the beautiful city of Montreal in winter.
