A Canadian Neighbourhood Was Just Named One Of The Coolest In The World
It's not in Toronto!
Canadians rejoice! That's because one of our cities just made the list of the top 40around the world.
Spoiler alert: It's not Toronto.
According to a global media and entertainment company Time Out based in London, U.K., a Montreal neighbourhood snagged number 11 on their list of places that balance standout local culture, food and fun with community support and kindness during the year of 2020.
Montreal's Verdun area's rank out of the top 40 cities
The neighbourhood is called Verdun, a borough of the city of Montreal, Quebec, found along the St. Lawrence River.
To make the list this year, this area had to meet a number of criteria including great vibes, good dining and nightlife, and independent culture on top of community spirit.
The statement from Time Out said for 2020 the list was "praising the neighbourhoods where people showed unconditional love and support for the communities and local businesses who represent the soul of the city."
Our southern neighbours also topped the list in many cities such as Downtown, LA; Bedford-Stuyvesant, New York; Wynwood, Miami and more.
The best neighbourhood on the list was Esquerra De L'Eixample, in Barcelona.
