Best time to go on a Montreal School Trip
Anytime is a good time. We might recommend avoiding some of the peak events like the Grand Prix in early June. Winter is a terrific time to discover how Montrealers and the Quebecois tame the long winters. Outdoor activities abound in winter as in summer.
Where to stay
Downtown is definitely where you want to be. You can walk through ‘le Vieux’ (old) Montreal or St-Kits, the popular street where stores, boutiques and cafes abound. Explore the famous ‘underground’ city and also the metro.
