Why you should spend American Thanksgiving in Montréal

It’s American Thanksgiving on November 26, and while we understand that many of our neighbours south of the border will be celebrating traditional-style, we also know that the idea of basting a Butterball and getting stuffed on stuffing might not grab everyone. Thankfully, Montréal offers some fun options for a weekend getaway – especially with the current advantageous exchange rates and the fact that we are a short drive away from the New England states. It’s the perfect time to discover our city’s amazing cultural options, great food, crazy good shopping and effervescent nightlife. Plus, everything will be OPEN. So now that we’ve talked turkey, let’s help you make plans to enjoy our fall bounty. Getting here Air Canada offers a lot of direct flights from US destinations, which means you can easily jet here for all our Montréal excitement. With gas prices still low, you might want to make it a road trip: don’t forget that we’re just an hour from the U.S.–Canada border. Where to stay We’ve got a pretty awesome Fall Sweet Deal worth checking out that gives you 50% off the second night at participating hotels, plus a coupon booklet worth $455 CDN on major activities… / Read More →

QUEER MTL GUIDE: Fall in love with Autumn

Autumn in Montreal is the best time to fall in love with the city. After a fresh fun summer, the leaves start to burn with the colours of pumpkin spice, candlelight, and crisp nights. Montrealers start cuddling a little closer, ordering increasingly hot seasonal beverages, swapping their flip-flop-crop-tops for leather boots and knitwear, and begin feasting to pad our bodies for the winter months ahead. Fall in Montreal is hopelessly romantic, energetically busy, and comes and goes all too quickly…
