Lindsay Kaplan sent along some great updates from the Montreal trip that took place over the long weekend. Read her words below, and check out pictures from the trip.
Today in Montreal, everyone had a great time on the walking/bus tour that included a scenic spot where we could see lots of Montreal as well as some beautiful paintings on the sides of buildings. We continued our walking tour and ended up in Old Montreal. From there, we split up into small groups and explored Old Montreal! We saw lots of small shops and ate amazing food! After our free time, we walked to the Notre-Dame Basilica and were amazed of the view. We continued from there to the museum of Archeology and was again, amazed by facts leading back to when Montreal was first colonized! We watched a fascinating movie about Montreal’s history and how it has progressed. After that we took an hour long bus ride to the Sugar Shack, took a short ride in a horse drawn carriage and ate some amazing food, danced and sang! We learned about maple syrup and we’re told very funny jokes by the son of the owner of the property! We tasted Maple Taffy and slipped and slid our way back to the bus. We had a great day and so much fun!
