Once we left Toronto, it was off to Montreal for a short stay. On our way there, we stopped off for a boat tour of the Thousand Islands – an archipelago of 1,864 islands that straddles the Canada–US border in the Saint Lawrence River. The ride gave us a great overview of the region, and I can’t wait to take another trip back to explore some of those tiny little islands (especially Pollepel, home of the famous Bannerman Castle) even further.
We were famished by the time we arrived in Montreal, so we strolled through Old Town and found a wonderful French restaurant called Le Vieux Senateur tucked away on a little side street. We mostly spent our time relaxing and taking in the sights in this charming city that can easily make you feel as if you’ve been transported to Europe. And one activity we particularly enjoyed was our excursion to the Parc Olympique where we rode to the top of the Montreal Tower as well as explore the Biodome.
