Allllllllllright, boos... So, most of us have never been on Spring Break before. Since many of us are on a pretty tight budget, flying anywhere is kind of out of the question. Where else to go where we can celebrate?! CANADA!
We're open to either Montreal or Toronto.. They both have good night scenes. Toronto is better for shopping and it's a bit more expensive and Montreal has more college kids and bars/clubs. I'd recommend Montreal from what I've read but I've never been there before so if anyone has and has any input I'd appreciate it!
I need to know when everyone's Spring Break is... We were planning on doing the trip either from M9-M11 or M16-M18... or we can always stay longer if people want to do that, too. It's an 8 hour drive, so we should leave decently early (I'd say around 7 or 8 AM?) so we have some time to relax and stuff before we go out! Also, gas + tolls would be about $30 per person each way for 4 in a car, and about $20 for 5 people in a car.
I've been looking at several hotels and have found quite a few that allow 4 guests in a room with 2 double beds for $50 per person (incl. tax) for the weekend which is very reasonable.
YOU NOW NEED A PASSPORT TO GO TO CANADA. You MUST get one by the end of the DECEMBER month, they take about 7-8 weeks to process. If you wait until the last minute, there is an express passport option that can be ready in less than two weeks but it's an extra $60 which I'm sure nobody wants to spend. All passport info and where you can get one is here:
I would like to know if you're definitely coming no later than the end of December just so that everything is organized and we can have a nice stress free getaway ;)
Here is a website that shows what they have to do nightlife wise in Montreal! Oh, and if any of you didn't know.. the drinking age there is 18. Hollllllla.
Post on here if you have any questions or need any info! Love you all and hope to see you in Canada, eh?
