Never one for overly planned tours, my style of travel instead melds a menu of provisional plans with a sense of exploration. So with a free day on our trip to Montreal, I suggested we explore the Outrement neighborhood.
My family has learned to trust my instincts. A few minutes of research on a smartphone is usually enough to confirm the presence of the minimum comforts and conveniences: transit stop or parking, places to walk, restaurant choices, something worth looking at, and so on.
And off we go. Usually, the main attraction is not something billed as an attraction, but rather a chance to see how the people in the place you’re visiting live, work, play, build, eat, shop, and more. Outrement fit the bill nicely.♦
