For those have never taken a family vacation outside the US, a trip to Quebec's city of Montreal with tweens will feel like a visit to a foreign country. Signs and websites are bilingual in French and English, and when you stop at a gas station even the men who look like lumberjacks speak in a foreign tongue. Thankfully, nearly everyone speaks English as well as French and, unlike exorbitant Paris, the exchange rate in Canada to the U.S. dollar is now about par.
Teach your tween the basics: "bonjour," "merci," and "parlez-vous anglais?" Then check out the options below for a perfect family vacation in Montreal with tweens.
