Early 2020 is the perfect time to visit our neighbors to the north: A number of airlines are offering discounted flights between major East Coast cities to Toronto and Montreal, many for under $200 round trip. The cheapest routes appear to originate out of LaGuardia (LGA) and Reagan (DCA), rather than the larger airports in each metropolis, and the best prices for most itineraries come from American Airlines.
