Escaping 4th of July chaos

393 mile(632km) trip to Mtl For this months' traveling we decided to escape the chaos that usually unfolds around the 4th of July celebrations in the US (note, they’re celebrating independence day, i.e. #brexit1776). However, keeping true to our approach of not planning things too thoroughly, we of course failed to realize that our chosen escape area hosted its own set of chaos: Canada150 day and the Montreal Jazz Festival.
