In just a little over a month, Staci and I will be heading up north for our annual trip abroad...only this time, it'll be much closer to home! Though we live relatively close, neither of us had ever been to the North American French settlement. It seemed like a no brainer to check it out, and now that I've done a little bit of research, I'm that much more excited. Besides indulging in a famous Montréal bagel, strolling the cobblestones of Old Montréal, and checking out some local jazz, we have a few specifics in mind.
Here's some of whats on tap (quite literally in some cases) for our trip!
This multi-use space reminds me of something I'd see in Brooklyn. It's part artisan market, part beer garden, part live music venue, and part yoga studio. Basically, it's right up our alley. Plus, it's beautiful.
Much like NYC, the Montreal Orchestra hosts free outdoor concerts in the summer. Apparently the artistic director and principal conductor, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, is heading to the NYC Orchestra in 2020, so I guess if I don't see him now, I can check him out here in a few years!
There's nothing us two Jewish girls love better than visiting foreign churches (really though). So, of course, we'll be checking out the Notre-Dame. If nothing else, we'll see how it stacks up to the one in Paris.
Alright guys, what are we missing?
