It’s safe to say that Montreal is a very accepting and open place to live. Our cultures mush and meld together in a way that creates this fabric of diversity.
All these things, places, people and experience together make Montreal a pretty incredible place to live and visit. An extremely interesting and hip neighborhood to visit in Montreal is the Gay Village – a.k.a The Village!
The Village, just east of downtown, is one of the largest gay districts in North America. Throughout most of the year, it’s a quiet and quirky neighborhood of gays, lesbians, families and cozy B&Bs housed in century-old duplexes and triplexes. From June to September, the Village is a big celebration of diversity, where out-of-towners mix with locals, dine al fresco, shop profusely, and relax under the sun with a cocktail or two. Here, lining Saint-Catherine Street East, are fashion and specialty boutiques, restaurants serving all kinds of cuisine, and a variety of venues at which you can dance the night away.
