For something completely different, we could always head north. This is the time of year to go, before the whole country is buried in snow.
Quebec City:
I’ve have read interesting things about the ‘Europeaness’ of the city and this year they are celebrating a huge anniversary, so there are events happening all summer.
Montreal:
I already have a trip to Montreal planned later this year, but another couple days just means more smoked meat for me. Also a ton of great local brewed, european-style beer that’s never exported down here. I have been wanting to go back to Montreal for years, two trips would be fine by me.
Toronto:
TO as the locals call it, has a hip-hop scene that hosts graffiti festivals regularly, cool hang out spots, great local brews that I have never seen south of the border and a local food scene that was strong before I’d ever heard the term locavore. Additionally, it’s got huge international communities, which means great West Indian and Asian food just about everywhere.
