Travel Tips for Montreal

Vieux Montréal/Old Montreal

by excentrus

Go to Old Montreal (METRO Place d'Armes) and walk around. The city is faboulous for walking in any season. There are many new boutique hotels (Gault Hotel, Hotel Nelligan, Hotel Saint-Paul, Hotel Saint-James) in Old Montreal and the area is seeing a veritable renaissance. Lots of good restos as well. Check out the Notre-Dame Basilica at Place d'Armes.....the most beautiful blue interior. When I am away from my home I miss the openess, the acceptance, the freedom and the joie de vivre in the city. I miss the people. Oh yeah, and I miss the bagels :-)

Mont Royal View

by jamiesno

Here is a view from Mont Royal. This was taken while on the a city bus tour this apparently was the best place for pictures, so again you really don't get the best pictures from Mont Royal.

If anyone knows a specific location that is best for pictures up there please leave some comments.

St. Joseph's Oratory~Mural

by nicolettart

This is a huge mural showing St. Joseph as the protector of Canada. The shields represent the Canadian provinces.

The painting was done in 1954 in celebration of the Golden Jubilee of the oratory.

Come to "La cabane a sucre"

by etrehumain

Each march, every Quebecers need sugar to help them finish the very long winter. And what better way then going to a "sugar shack" and celebrate spring arrival. As soon as the moon is right, or the wind from the southwest blows a certain way, the maple syrup producers head into the sugar bush and begin tapping their trees. The buckets fill with a sweetish, watery liquid that will be boiled down to make the delicately flavoured syrup everyone loves on pancakes.

In Montreal, there is fake sugar shacks on the Plateau Mont-Royal and in the Old Port, but for the real deal you will need to go outside the city and travel around 30 minutes (mostly on the south shore of Montreal) to find a place where traditional music and food are served. If your are here end march of beginning of april, you have to try it.

Eating Fresh Bagels

by wahine76

One thing I cant live without is my daily bagel every morning! And I can tell you Montreal bagels are the best in the world. They really dont taste or look like the fat tasteless New York bagels! :) Our bagels are thin, sweet and really tender inside.

The best places to get fresh bagels are St-Viateur Bagels (263 St. Viateur) and Fairmount Bagels(74 Fairmount West).

The best way to reach the St-Viateur Bagel bakery or the Fairmount Bagel bakery if you are driving from downtown Montréal is to take Avenue du Parc (Park Avenue) going North until you reach Fairmount and then make a right turn until you arrive at your destination.

St-Viateur is a few blocks after Fairmount and again you would turn right and you will find the bakery on your left-hand side. If you travel via the bus, take the 80 bus going north and either get off at Fairmount or St. Viateur.
