    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    shops and commercial centres not to mention the underground town, which can be a good escape from cold weather, and judging from its 'promising' beginning in the early autumn, I guess how biting it can be... are a paradise for the shopping lovers or a tourist trap according to how you consider the idea of going shopping ;-)...

    I hate to make any criticism of the great city, but this is one of them. In the summer, Montreal is not a stranger to extremely hot humid temperatures above 40 degrees celsius (104 fahrenheit) and one may desire some way of cooling down. In the vicinity, often a half hour drive from the city are a few beaches. I went to Plage St. Jacques and please do not expect these to be of high quality. They are well-kept but anything from spectucular. A small fee is required to enter and the 'lake' is technically man made- the St.Lawrence is not the ideal place in which to swim.

    Mont Tremblant. It's a ski hill and village up in the Laurentiens. It's touristy. Very very touristy. It's expensive. It's cute, yes, and the village might be worth visiting for a day, but remember that it's expensive. So's the ski hill. Plus, for skiing, it's way too cold. When the weather reaches -20C (which can happen) it feels like -60 at the top. Plus, you have to wait 45 minutes for the ski lift.

    Pont Jacques Cartier crosses the St Lawrence and connects with Ile St-Helene wher there was for many years a portion of Expo 67 that Montreal kept in perpetuim. Evidently they liked it so much they never let it get away. There are also picnic areas and an amusement park.
