My Friends and I are/were planning a trip to Montreal for a week this summer, and we have a few questions for anyone from the area.
1) Is it like the US, where most places require you to be 21 to get a hotel room/condo? Any suggestions on where to stay? We all have jobs and are paying for the whole trip ourselves, so we want to save as much money as possible while still being somewhat close to downtown.
2) What are some cool places to visit/things to do? Historical stuff is just as good as modern attractions, we don't want to just sit around all day.
3) Is it true that Americans are no longer allowed to drink at 18/19? Heard this from a guy at work, he says the law recently got changed to specifically stop people from the US who are under 21 from going over. It seems understandable that kids going across the border just to drink and cause problems would be an issue. We don't want to just have a week long party and get trashed the whole time or anything, but being able to get a beer and poutine would be nice.
