I am a Montrealer so some of...
I am a Montrealer so some of the sites that out-of-towners may find a 'must' do not really occur to me.
The two things I love most about my city are:
1. The diversity of cuisines available- everything from Korean to Russian restaurants.
2. The size of Montreal. Weather permitting, you can safely walk to most points of interest within the city from downtown. (The Olympic Stadium and the Casino being notable exceptions). However, walking on Olmstead's mountain or in the downtown core at night, etc... is a wonderful experience. I miss the variety of foods available and the low costs of restaurant meals.
go to Mont Royal
Mont Royal was my favorite part of Montreal. It's a hill/mountain right next to the city. It has hiking trails and monuments...and, if I remember correctly, every Sunday they have a big drum festival where people drum, dance, or just hang out...it was pretty crowded when I was there. The picture is of downtown Montreal from the view of Mont Royal.
Crescent street, and area
Crescent street, de la Montagne street, Peel street and area between René Lévesque and Maisonneuve.
Here is your club area. Places to meet people, dance, eat and drink, people gazing, follow the crowd and enjoy. Very safe all day, except for broken hearths.
Don't hesitate to ask for informations
Almost two third of the population of Montreal speak french and english and there are always willing to give you informations if you ask. They will help you with a smile and will immediatly have consideration for you. Try it! You may have a different experience some times but it is a caracteristic of the Montreal's population.
At any time on the streets you fell free and secure...you'll see!
