3 Spots to Catch a Montreal Sunrise

There’s a Montreal sunrise waiting to greet you. Here are the best spots to watch it happen:

1. Mont Royal
Due to municipal restrictions that limit the height of Montreal’s skyscrapers to 200 meters, the view from Chalet du Mont Royal, a building near Mont Royal’s summit is unobscured. 1196 Camillien-Houde Rd.
