Take a Break Tuesday presents,
Time to take a stroll to Hudson, Quebec!
It was misty outside and antiques were on my mind. My friends and I were on our way to Montreal,Quebec a Saturday some time ago for some birthday festivities and on the way we stopped in a quaint town called Hudson. We took in the scenery, sites and stores.
Situated around 60kms West of Montreal and about 150kms East of Ottawa it is close by (or on route to) some major Canadian destinations.
If you have a day off and are looking to visit a new place – this tucked away gem is highly recommended by me. Not only is there a ton of impressive and interesting real estate to look at – there are a ton of cute shops and friendly folk.
I personally enjoyed all the antiques at Ye auld curiosite boutique and the two floors full of history. On the same street a different take on antiques could be found at Hibou Décor 2 Barn Owls. This place seems quite selective and offers really intriguing “one of a kind” statement pieces. There is also a mystery red barn in the back that is used for select events.
Close by we entered a clothing shop called La Boutique Nova Hudson where we were greeting by three cheerful ladies and some really unique used clothing.
This town is a great walking town since a ton of the businesses are all on the Main Road-literally. Before you go make sure you check out the local business list so you can map your route and hit all the good spots.
Guess what? Finnegan’s Market is opening on May 3rd in Hudson – even more of a reason to visit. You will find many flea market type things at Finnegan’s and a slew of salivating worthy antiques.
Hudson was once voted one of the top places to live in Canada and after visiting I know why – it is worth the gander.
