The better question would be, why isn't it? From year-round festivals, to friendly folks and all the way to some of the best cuisine, Montreal is THE place to be! 


4. Why is Montreal...surrounded by orange cones?

We wish we had an explanation for this one. Montreal just loves its orange construction cones!
