Montreal

Montreal, Canada

As Canada's cultural city, Montreal is a unique mixed of European and North American Culture. The city is rich in history and is considered one of the liveliest cities in North America. Take in the photogenic 18-century facades of Old Montreal, and laze away your day at any of the innumerable cafes in the city.

Compared to other large cities in North America, women digital nomads will feel comfortable traveling around solo in Montreal. Like any major cities in the world, there are areas to avoid, and as always, using your street smarts is advised. If you are riding the bus at night, you can tell the driver, one stop ahead of time, where you would like to get off the bus. The driver will open the front door once the bus has safely stopped as close to the desired location as possible.

Montreal has a high cost of living, which is often the reason why it is not top of mind for digital nomads.

The best times to visit Montreal are from March to May and from September to November, when the weather is milder. June to August is Summer, and Summer marks peak tourist season, with travelers from across the globe flocking to the city to sightsee and participate in the numerous festivals. Winter in Montreal is from December to February, and temperature averages between the single digits and the 20s, and the ground is covered in snow and ice. When the weather gets too chilly to bear, head below ground to Underground City, a series of shopping malls, restaurants and even movie theaters bound together by an expansive maze of passageways.
