I can't say enough good things about it. The food is fantastic, the interesting neighborhoods are all within walking distance of each other -- or, at worst, a short metro ride away. Summer days are well-lit until late into the evening -- Montreal is as far north at Portland, OR.
And, best of all, the Montrealers are DAMN friendly! When you're visiting the majority of the city, where French rules, a simple Bon Jour will ease the language barrier and make communication easier.
So, book a flight, get on a train or drive north across the border -- and visit Montreal. You won't be disappointed!
