Montreal - Windows
On my recent trip to Montreal I chose to go with a bus trip sponsored by a local garden center. Usually I like to make my own travel plans and go by myself but this offer was too good to pass up. The bus trip included travel to and from Montreal, tickets for the Botanic Garden, and in the afternoon a choice of two times to be taken to Old Montreal where we would leave for our trip back to Vermont. It was a one day trip in which I did not have to drive and the price was reasonable.
Old Montreal is the once walled historic center of the city which was founded in 1642 and is a very popular destination for both locals and tourists. There are many historical sites, shops, restaurants with indoor and outdoor seating plus it's a festive place to people watch. And it's walkable. I strolled around taking pictures and noticed how many different styles of windows I saw not only in Old Montreal but from the bus as we drove through the city.
