Montreal is the largest city in Quebec and is located along the Saint Lawrence River. It's one of the top cities in North America for cultural events, tourism, and excellent dining. The city has a population of just under two million and offers a robust, attractive economy that brings many visitors and new residents to the city. Some of the main attractions in Montreal include the Gothic Revival Notre-Dame Basilica, Vieux Montreal, Mt. Royal, and many unique shops, restaurants, and historical sites to visit. One of the significant advantages of Montreal is its location. The city is conveniently placed just a few hours' drives from Ottawa, Toronto, and a short distance from New York State. It's frequently visited by tourists and road-trip travelers moving through the provinces as the primary stop to the Atlantic region. Montreal hosts many global events, including sports competitions, world concert tours, and international festivals.
