Check out cherry blossoms in Montreal

Is there any sign of spring more beautiful than the cherry blossom tree? We think not. Luckily, cherry blossom trees aren’t exclusively reserved for Washington D.C. and Vancouver. Nope, Montreal is home to some pretty stunning pink flora and it’s only a matter of time until those buds begin to blossom (typically the beginning of May).

For all those on the hunt for the first sign of spring (and those who just want a cute pic to post on their Instagram page), check out 6 places to find cherry blossom trees in Montreal.
