Under $100 / North America

Montréal is a city of culture and cuisine, holding the status as the second-largest French-speaking city in the world as well as the city with the most restaurants per capita in North America.


Start your day with an invigorating walk, jog or bike ride through Mount Royal Park, designed by the same man behind Central Park. Don’t miss the overlook, which boasts breathtaking views of the city.

For a quick lunch, stop by Bota Bota, a floating restaurant plus spa offering fresh, seasonal menu items. Try the warm duck confit salad ($17) or the upscale burger, topped with goat cheese, honey and sundried tomatoes ($16). A spa treatment is by no means required to dine on the refurbished boat, but if your time and budget allows, you may want to book one of the signature treatments.


Prepare for the upcoming 2016 Olympics with a visit to the Montréal Olympic Park. Now one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks, it was built for the 1976 games. Climb to the top of the Montréal Tower or sign up for a private tour of the entire grounds for only $18.

Montréal is home to more than 350 food trucks, and all will give you a chance to try the city’s favorites, from poutine to bagels. Use Streetfood Quest to find one near you, no matter where you are in the city.


Of course, be sure to visit Old Montréal, a section of the city that displays its beauty differently every season. If the grand architecture and history peak your interest, pay a visit to Pointe-à-Callière, the Montréal Museum of Archaeology and History. Tickets are only $20.

Stay Cozy with These Neck Pillows and Blankets

Traveling is hardly comfortable because of plane seats. Airplane seats also have poor neck support and headrests and can be cold. We found two-in-one pillow and blankets that may help make travelers' journeys more comfortable.

The Full-Sized Cutlery Sets of Qutlery

This cutlery set packs down into a tiny pipe for easy transportation and storage. If you are off on a camping trip or just don’t like to use public cutlery, this could be a great way of taking your utensils with you.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
