Tip – When visiting a new place, make sure that you ask for directions or have directions…or you may drive in circles for hours! That is, if you have a specific place in mind.
I’ve been in Montreal all day solo. I drove for 2 hours trying to find Old Montreal and the Old Port, and apparently was just a few streets away…so I’ve been told.
I at least saw the Notre Dame Basilica from a few streets over! And, a palace too!
It looked beautiful for a few minutes, but I went too far.
Several minutes later, I found myself in a beautiful place – a national park even!
Îles-de-Boucherville National Park – a park made up of 5 islands in the Saint Lawerence River.
What a beautiful place for hiking and backcountry skiing, I found in Sainte-Marguerite! I really enjoyed listening to the birds singing in the trees too.
It’s a great escape from bustling Montreal. Which I plan to see, next time!
If you have advice for next time, please leave comments! 😊
