Topping 764 feet, Montreal's Mount Royal is the highest point in the city and the best place to grab panoramic views of the city. Bikers, hikers and walkers fill the trails, as this is one of the most popular green spaces in Montreal. The mountain is surrounded by a lovely park landscaped by Frederick Law Olmsted, the same man who designed New York's Central Park.
Just below the mountain is Beaver Lake, a favorite spot for ducks in the summer and ice skaters in the winter. The lush prettiness and great views make Mount Royal a Montreal must see.
