Your friend is almost ready to step on the altar and your task is to find the perfect place where to spend her last days as a bachelorette. But it can’t just be any given city – the place must have character, as well as be charming and fun. That being said, Montreal is an original alternative that ticks all the boxes.
As Canada’s second largest city, Montreal is one of the best bachelorette party destinations in the world. Located on an island of Saint Laurent River, in the French province of Quebec, the city – where most locals are bilingual – is dynamic, contemporaneous and historical at the same time, and feels like a piece of Europe in North America. Montreal is also one of the country’s great metropolis, and aside from its commercial and industrial importance, offers many options in entertainment and cultural programmes. With a remaining architecture from the French colonization, it retrieves some of the charms of past centuries, creating a unique atmosphere that merges past and present.
Below are 3 reasons why you should have a bachelorette party in Montreal.
A Perfect Mix of “Old” and “New”
One of the city’s most important areas is Vieux-Montreal, known as Old Montreal – an old quarter considered by many to be the most charming in the city. There are several historic streets that are worth taking a stroll, among which the most picturesque is the Rue Saint Paul Ouest, once considered the main street of the city. This is also the best area to look for a place to stay, since it is close to most touristic spots and conveniences.
Another landmark that would fit right into your itinerary is the Mont-Royal, a hilltop that offers a beautiful, panoramic view of the city. This is the perfect place to take a group photograph and admire the contrasts in the landscape. Ideally, you would want to have a vacation photographer present in such a remarkable occasion, so to register the moment in high-resolution. Other sites that showcase Montreal’s incredible duality are the Place des Artes, the artistic heart of the city; the Jean-Talon food market, where you can try an array of dried fruit; and the RESO, the underground city of Montreal, which features various shops, cafes, and is connected to the subway line.
You Will Surely Eat Well
Montreal claims to be the North American city with the largest number of restaurant per capita – and certainly, it doesn’t lack good places to eat. There are various options, with different types of cuisine to suit all budgets. The gastronomic scene of Montreal has, mainly, restaurants of French cuisine with a contemporary touch. Any cafe or small cafeteria may surprise you by the quality of the food.
In Canada, pancakes with maple syrup, sandwiches, peameal bacon, butter tart, as well as fish, seafood and duck dishes (also on account of French influence) are popular. In the province of Quebec, the poutine was created – a dish that consists of french fries, cheese, and sauce, which has become typical of Canada. It is definitely a must-try, especially after abig night of celebrations.
