Montreal is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Canada. As part of the province of Quebec, Montreal is a beautiful place to visit for many occasions. Montreal is one of the most bilingual cities both the province and country, with over 59% of the population able to speak both English and French. The city is known as a very nice, clean city to visit and live in-- it was named one of the most livable cities in the world. When planning your trip, make sure to check the weather beforehand. The city has a 4-climate season, but the winters are very cold! You may want to schedule a trip for late spring or early summer to get the most out of the trip (unless you like the snow, that is!). There is a lot to see in Montreal. Some even say it's like a piece of Europe placed in North America! Check out some of our top places to eat, drink, and visit!
New Orleans is a city in Louisiana (you've probably read about it in a history book at one time!). The city is a great place to visit, unlike most populous cities in the United States. The culture in New Orleans, nicknamed "NOLA", is said to be different than the rest of the country. Not only does NOLA have delicious restaurants with all the southern food you know and love, it is also popular for being the birthplace of jazz music. As you can imagine, the jazz bars are a must see. When planning your trip, you also should schedule a tour to visit a plantation, which will give you a background on the history of the area. You may also know New Orleans as the place to go during Mardi Gras, the two-week celebration leading up to fat Tuesday.

Vegas, as it's commonly referred to, is also a popular destination for entertainment and nightlife. Year after year, Las Vegas continues to be ranked as one of the world's most visited tourist destinations. The Las Vegas strip is where the majority of hotels and casinos are located, even though it is technically outside of city limits.
