This year I spent my winter break in Montreal, Quebec. I absolutely adore the city. I love everything about it–its food, culture, events, shopping, attractions and people. During my week in Montreal, I visited the Biodome, Insectarium, Place des Arts, Mount Royal, Mount Royal Cemetery, Olympic Stadium, the Old Port, Place Bonaventure, Saint Joseph’s Oratory, and my favorite–the Botanical Garden. Every year, Montreal’s Botanical Garden transforms their exhibition greenhouse into a massive butterfly sanctuary where they host their ‘Butterflies Go Free’ exhibit. Thousands of colourful butterflies and moths fly freely throughout the greenhouse. The 2013 exhibit showcased monarchs as its main attraction. It was incredible. In the middle of winter thousands of vibrant butterflies fly about bringing life (and hope of spring) to the city. If ever in Montreal, I highly recommend this attraction.
