Have you ever wondered what would happen if you took the best of North America and the best of Europe and put them together? You'd get Québec. Ideal for weekend breaks, Montréal is a buzzing cosmopolitan city with a European café and restaurant scene. Venture down to the Vieux Port to be whisked back a few centuries, or hit up the funky Quartier Latin along Rue St. Denis for a look at what the city's contemporary chefs are up to. Québec is the historical home of ice hockey, and fans of the game have to visit the Bell Centre on a weekend trip, either to catch an NHL game or see the museum dedicated to the Montréal Canadiens, one of the most successful hockey teams in history. As the sun goes down, walk down Rue St. Laurent, pick up a meal at the city's famous smoked-meat sandwich shops, and stop in at the cool, quirky bars, each with their own distinct character.
