Amtrak Adirondack

Pros: Comfortable and convenient journey. Cons: The unwelcoming attitude of the US immigration officials. They are not exactly efficient. The train was held up for 1.5 hours. Tips: Make sure you take US dollars with you to pay to get your passport stamped. This is extra to the ESTA. They don’t accept Canadian dollars on the train despite it being a land border. You can pay by credit card but it just takes a lot longer.

For those who wish to stay close to nature, the gigantic Parc du Mont-Royal will satisfy all your needs. In the warmer months of the year, you can rent a boat and row on Lac des Castors, which offers amazing views.

Montreal is heaven for fans of French cuisine. The top-rated traditional French restaurants converge in the Old Montreal quarter, and some local favorite names include Toque, LOV, Crew Collective & Cafe. For those looking for Canadian specialties, head over to Schwartz’s.
