Whether you are a big traveller or a homebody by nature, there is at least one trip you need to make if you live in Montreal, and that’s to two of the biggest cities in the United States. New York and Boston are cities unlike any other in the world.

Here are 7 reasons why everyone needs to go to Boston and New York at least once.

1)      The Famous Sights

Copley, Boston Library, Boston Common, Quincy market, Newbury street, the North End, the Harbour just to name a few… In Boston, it is worst going on the Boston duck tour to discover the city. In New York, the list goes on and on: Central Park, Ellis Island, Liberty statue, 9/11 memorial, 5th avenue, Time square, Empire State building…

6)      The People

New Yorkers may not have a great reputation for being full or friendly, welcoming people, but actually, the city is the wonder that it is because of the great diversity of fascinating people that live there. Everywhere you look you’ll see people doing incredible things, whether it’s building business or performing circus acts in the street. It is worth talking to as many people as possible to hear their stories, as well as creating one of your very own.
