Quartier Dix30 – Where Mall Meets Resort

What to do in Dix30 | Opinion

Vacationing in… Brossard?

Have you ever thought of vacationing in… Brossard? Yes, Brossard! That sleepy suburb on Montreal’s South Shore!

Only it’s not so sleepy. In fact, there’s some pretty amazing stuff to discover throughout the South Shore, but the place you’ve most likely heard of is Quartier Dix30.

If you’ve never been, you’re probably under the impression that it’s just a really big outdoor mall. Sure, it’s got great shops that range from Joe Fresh to Hugo Boss, Jysk to Anthropologie (and so, so many more) and the shopping alone could keep your debit card smoking for days, but Dix30 goes far beyond shopping. And we’re not talking food court either.
