Montreal, Canada for School-Age Kids
Know Before You GoPrinter-Friendly Version
- At a Glance
Few cities manage to blend the old and the new together as well as Montreal, a place where kids will be captivated by both original red sandstone colonial houses and ultra-modern geodesic domes. Montreal's rich history as a port city of major importance during the settling of the New World combined with its fearless embracing of all things new and a thriving immigrant culture make it a place that families love to visit over and over again. Put on your walking shoes or don your most fashionable stilettos (both styles fly in everything-goes Montreal) and let the adventure begin.
