February's travel section has ice, sun, sand and music

Montreal's sprawling urban festival lights up the entire city starting Feb. 20 with light shows, food events, Ferris wheel, huge ice slide and lots more. 

February's travel section takes readers to Toronto sports bars where fans descend when they can't get hockey tickets to see their beloved Maple Leafs. Just caddy corner to the team's home ice at Air Canada Centre is Hotel Le Germain where you'll see some surprising sights, including a view of the 30 foot high screen on Maple Leaf Square. That's where you can join the fun and watch Olympic action in Sochi this week as Team Canada hockey play airs at noon.
Sashay down to Nashville where music, food and fun fill the town and honky-tonks beckon with lots more than country.
Celebrate winter where the season is serious at a quartet of winter festivals, including one in Alaska where native Inuit arts and sports are part of the fun.
Or maybe you're done, done, done with winter and doing your homework for a trip to the Florida Keys. Check out what's up down that way in the next few weeks as feast your eyes on a  tropical sunset.
News-Herald print subscribers got their travel section on Sunday, Feb. 9, but click on the contrasting type here  to read the stories online, where you'll also find slide shows,  interactive maps and newsy briefs, including one that lets you explore the impact of snow without even getting cold.
