We all know certain places in Montreal are magical all year round. But come holiday times, the city takes it to a whole other level. It's world-class, like other amazing Christmas cities like London.

London is the setting for many of your favourite holiday movies, such as Love Actually.

But here in Montreal, we've got the perfect spots to write your own stories this holiday season.

Just because we can't really travel this holiday season, doesn't mean you can't have a totally wonderful experience that whisks you away.
