As you know by now, Jet Setting to foreign destinations is what I love to do most in this world! If I could, I would chose not have a home base, but instead live and travel from one amazing locale to the next.
For now, my husband and I try to travel on average about 4-6 times a year. And we don't always take long vacations. Sometimes, we jet somewhere that isn't so far away, but that is rich in culture! A perfect example...MONTREAL!!! Yes Canada, my fellow jetsetters! It's only an hour and a half flight from New York- which makes it the perfect location to visit for a quick weekend getaway.

A Few Jet Set Smart Things to know about MONTREAL:
1- They use the CAD (Canadian dollar) which isn't worth much more than the USD currently. So while your money won't go as far in Montreal as it will in Buenos Aires at the moment, it's not as expensive as let's say Paris. Today's rate was 1 U.S. dollar = 1.07 Canadian dollar
2- Locals speak French & English
3- No long transatlantic overnight flight! Many daily flights out of JFK, LaGuardia & Newark.
**PLUS: Just found this great deal that runs through October 15, 2009! Book two nights or more, and depending on hotel, get 50% off 2nd night, or 3rd night FREE!!! Hotel rooms with a 4-star rating start at $115/per night.**

  1. I absolutely love that you find the deals for your readers. Amazing job, and I love reading your blog!

  2. Hello Lori, I've forgotten how easy it is to visit Montreal from NYC. My next weekend trip will definitely be to Montreal! Thanks for a great recommendation! I hear Ottawa is a beautiful & culturally active city as well. Any suggestions or thoughts? Thanks, NMR
