    Favorite thing: climb that one mountain in the middle of the city called mont-royal and see the whole city at night.
    its gorgeous.

    Fondest memory: in a sick and twisted way, i often miss the -45c windchill when i'm on my x-mas vacation in the heat.

    Favorite thing: Take a walk on the Mont-Royal. This mountain, that gave the name to the city, is in the middle of the city. It's a funny feeling to start walking in this park because you don't feel in the middle of a large city. Nice place for nature lovers. The park also offers great view of the city.

    On Sunday afternoons, if you are feeling a bit hippy, go to the bottom of the mountain, next to the statue and just sit back in the grass or dance to the sounds of the Tam-Tams. People gather around this statue with their percussions and just jam with all the others. Some of the people that are there are an organized group, but others just go there with their instruments.

    Bring a picnic and enjoy. There used to be a lot of pot smoking and dealing there, but the police did a big clean-up and there is far less now.

    Although I've never been there at night, I would not recommend it. The bushes seem to move a whole lot in some parts of the mountain...

    Favorite thing: I've always loved to walk on Montreal's small mountain. The view in winter is always the best you can get, since there are no more foliage to block your view...

    Favorite thing: Take a little walk on the Mt-Royal and you'll see the hole city. Every sunday during summer, there is a percussion jam, so bring your tam-tam!

    Favorite thing: If you only could choose one place to go, or only have a few hours to spend in Montreal, visit Mont Royal Park
