The city Toronto wishes it was. A place where strangely good looking people, hockey, beer and just having fun are the order of the day. Only city where smoking a joint on the street isn't frowned upon, it's encouraged. Referred to as the canadian Europe. Home to bands such as the Arcade Fire, Malajube, Mobile, Sam Roberts band, The Stills, and many more.Truly, the greatest city in the world, Montreal exudes awesomeness.
OH. AND MONTREAL BAGELS ARE THE BEST. no word of a lie, they bring all other bagels to shame.
Torontonian living in Montreal: Dude. My mom sent me a care package! Look, there's bagels, a hockey jersey and wow! A justin Bieber cd! Toronto is way better than montreal.
Montrealer: 1) That isn't a bagel, it's an unsweetened doughnut with sesame seeds on top. 2) Hockey is a relative term. The toronto maple laughs play ice-dance. 3)JUSTIN BIEBER? Dude, i just lost all respect for you.
Montreal is a wonderful city full of action and a great history.
Although Montreal's sucess is fairly recent, the city has been alive for hundreds of years. It's been THE place in Quebec everybody wants to visit.
The action in Montreal is absolutely unbelievable. You could visit Montreal for a few days and feel like you've lived a totally different life while spending your time there.
Probably the only city in the province of Quebec to hold as many subcultures and different lifestyles.
The Arts and Media are highly developed there, too. Fashion and Art shows, great musicians, television shows, comedians.
The Montreal Jazz Festival is probably the city's biggest event of all time. Every year, hundreds(if not thousands) of musicians from all over the world travel to perform, or to watch. It's not just Jazz music, it's always very diverse. I strongly recommand it.
And as for the party times of Montreal, well, y'know the reputation.
Sex drugs and rock n roll.
Don't forget the clubs
Goth, Metal, Punk, House and RnB, They have all the types of clubs.
Drinking age : 18 Years
People drink : In parks.
Cops : Too drunk to notice.
Kid #1 : I just got back from Montreal!
Kid #2 : No wonder your hair is now green
Where else in North America can you go gamble in a casino, drink liquor in a park, smoke spliffs on the street and see the hottest strippers in the world? Oh yeah - legal drinking age is 18!!!
You want to party - come to montreal.
A fine city with a rich and unique history, lovely parks, and a diverse population that is typically recognized for being little more than a great party town by unbelievably lame American jerkoffs who go there to get wasted and hit strip joints.
"I love Montreal! Supersexe is so cool and the Peel Pub is the best bar ev--ARRRGHHH!" (gets punched).
Please you ignorant buffoons, you wouldn't know a great city from your ass (I am of course talking mainly to Big K man, who i assume is not actually very big, if you know what i mean (wink wink), and Adam B).
I don't know if i can capture the essence of Montreal quite as well as Kazzie but i will try.
First of all let me point out to all those marjuana enthusiasts that although Montreal may have some of the "best weed" there is far more to this mammoth of a city then just that.
Montreal is not only internationally renowned for remaining at the height of fashion, pop culture and social atmosphere but it is also one of the most, if not THE most ethnically and culturally diverse cities in north america. As a montrealer i pride myself on the fact that unlike the melting pot that is the US, Canada and specifically Montreal welcomes (and does not judge) all races, religions and cultures, all of whom have thriving communities in Montreal. Those "frenchies" as Adam B so eloquently put it are just part of the unbelievable atmosphere that the officially BILINGUAL city of Montreal has to offer.
By the by, Montreal is also home to world renowned Mcgill Univeristy and of course to the greatest hockey team of all time...the MONTREAL CANADIENS!
So don't judge a book by its cover and certainly don't judge Montreal by the opinions of "Big" K man and Adam B as scholarly and dignified a definition as they may have wrote.
A liberal city where everyone knows how to have a good time!
Aside fromm being the best party city in North America, the people here in Montreal just know how to let lose and have a good time. For the most part they're easy-going (except for when in comes to driving) and friendly and welcoming to everyone.
One of the best cities in north america, the city where canada's REAL heritage comes from. Easygoing people, a million festivals in summer, the most beautiful ladies in the world(even better than in brazil), stupid tourists that hate quebecois people and dare visit the french capital of north america where the sun never sets and you can buy beer at the corner store... sorry but it's the best city on the continent so if you hate french people or italians or any ethnicity, don't come!!
If you hate montreal and its people, please don't come here.
Where American boys go to party because the drinking age is 18, not 21.
Those Boston Boys came to Montreal to get hammed
