THE BEST PARTS ABOUT LIVING IN MTL

What makes it so great?

If you ever wonder why people in this city are so patriotic towards living in Montreal, it’s because of the countless things that make this city undeniably ~awesome~, and completely unique. If you’re not exactly sure what we’re talking about, this list may just be your answer: 

 

 

Cheap rent. 

 

Accessibility of literally everything. From arts and culture, to sports, to different types of food, festivals, shopping, and more, Montreal offers experiences of all sorts.

Easy access to food and alcohol, and bars are open later than 2am.

 

Montreal is extremely multicultural and cosmopolitan,  there’s something to celebrate everyone’s culture and lifestyle.

I don’t think there’s a type of food that exists, that you can’t find in Montreal. The food here is DELIGHTFUL.

From Old Port to the Plateau Mount Royal, every part of the city is SO different and full of it’s own culture and history (street art, architecture, food, and more).

The nightlife, and corresponding culture, vibe, and people.

There’s always cool things around the city– a giant zip line through the city, an urban forest, free musical swings in the downtown core… need I say more?

And somewhat adding to the previous point, fun is encouraged! Montreal doesn’t ban things in similar style to other cities- in fact, Montreal has a by-law that even allows you to drink in public on Sunday’s if you have food on you. Yes, the city is setting you up for the perfect picnic day.

Doesn’t matter the time of year, the city adapts to each season; it’s a winter wonderland during the winter with events like Igloofest, the Olympic Village, and Fete de Neige,  and easily one of the top places in Canada to spend your summer with huge events every weekend.

THE BATHROOM. Never feel rushed, sing in the shower as loud as you please, and don’t ever put a toilet paper roll back on the holder.
