A frugal New Englander, I am definitely not a gambler, but while in Montreal recently I had a chance to attend the opening night festivities of the newly refurbished casino. It was a gala evening, and the building is amazing. At night, lights sparkle in the huge building and reflect off the water. Inside, all is light and bright.

Those who enjoy testing their wits against Lady Luck will find that the 4 years of construction and $305 million Canadian dollars poured into the casino were well spent. Slot machines now include 3-D animation with well-known film characters, for example. Perhaps most eye-popping are the visual effects projected on a huge multimedia wall. The casino also boasts 6 bars and several casual restaurants where the food–as one might expect in this cuisine-crazy city–is excellent.

Consider a stop if your travels bring you to beautiful Montreal, one of my favorite cities.
