Logo   Montréal, Québec Guide




Montreal, Québec, Canada, is not part of New England USA, but it's one of the four cities that frame New England: Montreal, Boston MA, New York City, and Albany NY.

It's also easily accessible from New England, and vice-versa. Passport in hand, you can cross to or from Montreal easily in a car, on a bus, train or plane. Amtrak's Montrealer train travels between New York City and the Québec metropolis daily, and several daily buses connect Boston and Montreal.

As for Montreal itself, it's simply delightful: beautiful architecture, great museums and galleries, fine restaurants, a great selection of hotels from world-class cosmopolitan to homey B&Bs, and lots to see and do year-round.

Plan to spend a bit of time and you can make your New England tour a Two-Nation Vacation with a few days in Montreal, and then perhaps a quick train or bus ride to Québec City.
