The Top 20 Travel Blogs in Montreal in 2019

After extensive research, we’re proud to announce the 20 best blogs you can find for traveling to Montreal!

The selection process…

Traveling is about experiencing the best of what a new city can offer and a great place to find inspiration is in blogs. However, it can be a jungle to navigate through the many blogs and content you can find online. Therefore, our team has scoured the internet looking for the best travel blogs in Montreal.

The 20 blogs that have made the final list have been selected following a selection according to 4 criteria:

  • Quality of the content
  • The practicality of the tips and pieces of advice
  • Purpose of the blog
  • Originality

In this award, you will find talented photographers, skilled writers, wanderlust addicts, foodies, family travelers, and eco-friendly travelers. Additionally, it is necessary to mention that some websites awarded are not, strictly speaking, travel blogs. However, in every case, the usefulness of their tips or their great content have convinced us to include them.

All 20 blogs have made it as “Best 20 Travel Blogs” meaning the order is random.

We would like to congratulate all the bloggers that made the Top 20 thanks to their awesome work!

Miss Nice Life

Personally I love travelling, taking pictures, going to amazing events and sharing it with my friends and family on social media outlets.

That is how Miss Nice Life was created.  As a novice blogger I want to help everyone experience wonderful excursions, find value, and explore life.

Kasia Writes is about travelling with a historical perspective and culture of the places I visit. I like to bring my readers to places most have only read about or seen in movies. It’s as if I walk in the footsteps of those that came before us and bring the readers along for the ride. While it might not appeal to everyone, those who like travel, history and interesting stories will definitely enjoy it. At least that’s the idea.

It’s definitely not meant to be a history lesson, rather a reflection on the places I visit and why they are important. Some of them are places I’ve learned about and want to see for myself. Others are ones that I have always wanted to see. I hope to inspire my readers to learn more about the places they visit so they can become responsible travelers.”
