  • Mont-Royal

    Montreal Favorites

    If your in town on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in the summer, you have to go to the tam-tams. It starts in the spring and goes till the fall but the height of the season is in the summer. Take a good walk around because there are surprises to be found in every part of the park. . . such as the duck tape wars going on in the back field. I reserve...

  • Walking around Quebec City

    Quebec Favorites

    Get up EARLY and walk around the city for some peaceful views, especially in summer when there are more tourists. I arrived in Quebec in the late afternoon and found the city overrun by school children. It was annoying to say the least so I went to bed early and rose early. I was out on the town by 7am and enjoyed my time so much! No shops are...

  • Quebec's Military Background

    Quebec Favorites

    It seems the famous “Plains of Abraham” were named after a farmer of that name who had farmed them some years before the British arrived. That happened on the morning of 13 September 1759 and their arrival that day surely must have put the Marquis right off his breakfast! I’ve asked, I’ve researched, but nowhere can I find a good reason why...

  • Ste-Catherine street

    Montreal Favorites

    I found these 3 performers while walking on Ste-Catherine street. Picture 1 is the first musician I noticed. He was playing something looking like Spanish "castañuelas" (but not quite) and hitting them with the thingie that looks like a bike saddle, making a sound like horse shoes when a horse is walking. Picture 2 shows a guy dressed like...

  • Architectural/Culture (Old and New)

    Montreal Favorites

    This area of Montreal was known as the Golden Square Mile, for its remarkable concentration of wealth and power, mostly Anglophone. This hall, now part of McGill University, is representative. It was orignally built in 1907 as a private residence for Sir Mortimer Davis (1866-1928), Montreal born businessman, known as "The Tobacco King". (Davis in...

  • Quartier Latin

    Montreal Favorites

    Our B&B was in an area known as the Latin Quarter, apparently known for its interesting houses and for being the traditional centre of French nationalism. So, with those thoughts, I rather expected to find buildings in the French style. I wouldn’t say that the outcome disappointed me, but the buildings we found were generally what seems to be...

    Old Quebec is one of the oldest cities in Canada. It was founded in the early 1700s, and even though it is a major tourist attraction now, it still has most of the old buildings and roads. It is the only city in North America that still has its original walls standing. One thing I remember, aside from all the beautiful architecture, were cannons...

Montreal is a cosmopolitan city, her strength lies in her diverse ethnicities, neighbourhoods, culture, restaurants, etc; but Quebec' provincial language laws make it all but impossible...

    During our guided tour of old Quebec city we walked the streets down by the river and eventually came to some buildings that had murals painted on the wall showing a scene from 300 years ago. From the distance (100 metres) it looked as though there were real people in the old town. The closer we came to the building we could see that it was only a...

    Montreal Favorites

    I just loved the amazing architecture everywhere, especially in the houses in the Plateau area. Shiny black wrought-iron bannisters on winding staircases on 17th C style buildings with a 4-square foot garden in front. All done in beautiful bright colours. Open your eyes and just take it all in.

    This kilometer-long boardwalk connects the Château Frontenac with the belvedere at the top of the Citadelle (Plains of Abraham), and provides commanding views of the St.-Laurent River. The trip to the top involves climbing 510 wooden stairs, but there are plenty of bench-equipped resting spots along the way.

    While at the bottom, catch the ferry across the St. Lawrence for great views back toward Quebec City. The round trip takes approximately thirty minutes and gives the opportunity to rest weary feet. You don't have to get off on the far shore. Don't forget your camera. You'll want to take pictures of Old Quebec and the lower town from the river.
