Montréal, Canada is the perfect slice of European life for a winter getaway in North America. The city is a great place to discover culinary treasures, unique shopping, outdoor adventures, museums, historical tours and more depending during which season you are traveling. And don't fret about the cold weather: Montréal has the largest underground shopping network underneath the streets with 20 miles of shops connecting to museums, hotels, banks, apartment complex, university and a complete transportation system called 'Métro'.
Every December, the Christmas spirit comes alive in Old Montréal during Old Montréal's Extravaganza. Activities include themed exhibitions in the museums, Open Air Christmas Carols on Place Jacques-Cartier, a decorated skating rink and sampling of products at Marché Bonsecours.
