Planning to visit Montreal

Hi there,
In a month you can see more than Montreal. Visit also Quebec city and Ottawa, and if you still have energy, go to Toronto and Niagara Falls. Anyway, here is some popular Montreal attractions as an example: Montreal Botanical Gardens (Jardin Botanique de Montreal), Notre-Dame Basilica (Basilique Notre-Dame), Old Montreal Vieux-Montreal), Mount Royal, St. Joseph's Oratory (Oratoire Saint-Joseph), Biodome de Montreal (in Olympic park, there is other stuff too). This week is the jazz festival week, so finding accomodation might be tricky.
Here is some links to city and accomodation.

Also McGill University (downtown) is giving cheap accomodation during summer time.
The tourist office is on Peel street, they are very helpful...Cheers

Hi We took a week to visit Quebec, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Niagra Falls. 2 nights in Quebec and Toronto. Montreal and Ottawa are very close , approx 2 hours drive. All these cities have much to offer, we were there June 2007 and weather was good. I have just finished pages on Quebec, Montreal,and Ottawa which you are welcome to view, some good web page links for what is happening and tourist attractions. Train and bus connect all cities.

Good Luck,
Mike

Travel Tips for Montreal

Outremont

by vanessadb

My favourite neighborhood in Montreal is Outremont. It is mainly residential, with beautiful streets and cute small buildings right next to each other. Most of them have that natural yet beautiful brick color.

Then there is Bernard Street, where you'll find a few restaurants (bistro like) and Laurier Street full of cute little boutiques. Outremont is a typical Montreal residential neighborhood. It is not touristy, and therefore you really sense the local flavors...

Bob l'Eponge

by emilienoelle

I know this is silly. And I'm willing to admit that some of it may have been the Bordeaux talking, so I don't know why I'm compelled to write it, except to say that if you have never watched Sponge Bob in French you really should try it. Wait until you've had a glass of wine or two and are very over tired, because then it will be even funnier when the announcer says, "Bob l'Eponge!" Like I said, it's silly, but I think it has something to do with the French language sounding so, well, formal in contrast to the subject matter. To this day if I say the words "Bob l'Eponge" to my husband he doubles over with laughter. Just say it out loud to yourself a few times. You don't even have to like Sponge Bob to get a little amusement out of it. We've never even seen the show in English!

St. James United Church (1889)

by yooperprof

St. James United is an impressive Protestant church on bustling Rue St. Catherine (west). Designed in the French Gothic style by Montreal architect Alexander Dunlop, the building opened in 1889. For many years its highly decorated facade on St. Catherine's was hidden by a row of commercial structures; happily, these have been removed, revealing the gothic pile in all its glory.

Wneh it was constructed, it was the largest Methodist church in Canada. Canada's Methodists joined up with the United Church of Canada (Congregationalists and some Presbyterians) in 1925.

St. James United features a highly acclaim Freres Cassavant organ - I'm sure it worth coming to a concert, if you are interested in organ music.

Festival international du jazz

by eternel2002

The international jazz festival is one of the most important events of the summer in Montreal, during few days the city become very active, lot of people and tourists come and the ambiance is at the top, many outside free shows as well as inside shows are available, every one can find some thing to watch and like, for sure ;)

Arrêt - it's more than just a stop sign!

by Carmanah

If the red octogon isn't obvious enough, "Arrêt" is the French word for "Stop".

Apparently the province of Quebec is the only place in the world where they have translated the word "Stop" on stop signs into French. That's saying something. In fact, though some may argue otherwise, I see the stop sign in Quebec as a bold political statement by francophone quebecers... and fair enough!

Quebec is a place where culture is synonymous with language. That is to say, they see themselves as a distinct society because of their French language. There is a fear that without fierce protection of the French language, English will ravish the province and French will wither way. The French language *is* Quebec, and to deny this is to deny the Quebecois people their culture. Without the French language, there is no Quebecois culture.

Some may have heard stories about the "language police", a body of government who enforce rules about how French and English should be displayed in public. For example, the French language must appear more dominant on signs than English. So French text might appear 2-3 if not 10 times as large on signs in Quebec than English... if there is even any English at all. After all, Quebec is the paradox in the so-called bilingual country of Canada. Quebec's provincial government only recognizes French as their official language.

Other examples of what you may see - an apostrophe followed by the letter "S" is an English phenomenon, not a French one, so "McDonald's" or "Tim Horton's" must legally change their names to satisfy the francophone public.

English speakers are known to laugh at this or take offence to this. Yet, if the roles were reversed - if the world was increasingly French-speaking and we were 9 million North American English speakers in a sea of 330 million French speakers, would we be translating our stop signs into our own language to preserve what self-identifying culture we had left?
