I am planning a trip this summer and would like to visit either Montreal or Toronto. I am leaning towards Montreal because it seems to be the most unusual out of the three due to the French influence. Would it be feasible to visit both cities if you only had 7 days?

Yes Montreal would certainly be the first chocs. Out of all of Canada actually. It's very unique and interesting city that is great for visiting and experiencing. I think 7 days in both cities is not worth it. The two cities are kind of far from each other and I don't think you will have enough time. I think you should be in Montreal for 7 days to really experience it and maybe make a stop in Quebec City for a day to see all of that as well.

Thanks for the input ... I probably will stick with Montreal and wanted to see Quebec City as well ... Wish that I had more than 7 days though so I could travel to Toronto ...

Good idea - or if you don't have a car, take the train!
Montréal-Québec City train

Also, Ottawa is only an hour and a half from Montreal. Oddly, considering Ottawa is larger and is the nation's capital, Quebec city is the superior tourist destination, but Ottawa's not bad and considering the proximity might be interesting for a day trip if it's not too out of your way.

Yeah. It's possible. Take VIARail. It would be a trip that would feel rushed. I would almost recommend Montreal with a 2-day jaunt to Quebec City, instead.
