    Montreal Things to Do

    This lovely city hall building was built between 1872 and 1878. Located right across the street from Place Jacques Cartier it is right by the Champ de Mars.

  • Montmorency Falls

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Quebec Things to Do

    About 8 miles out of Quebec is this fantastic falls. They are higher than Niagara but not as wide. There is no public transport out here so you can either rent a car, book a bus tour, or as I did rent a bike. There is a bike trail that extends from the old city all the way to the falls and beyond. At 8 miles its a fairly easy about 1 hr ride.

  • Mont-Royal

    Montreal Things to Do

    Overlooking the plane town of Montreal, the hill of Mount Royal (that gave name to the city) is at the same time, the "lungs" and the best sightseeing point of it. Small lakes and statues embellish this recreational area of Montreal

  • Downtown

    Montreal Things to Do

    The central area of Montreal shows a perfect combination between historic and modern buildings. If I had to choose a place to live in North America, I think this would be my first choice. Harmony, quality of life, safety, and a natural blending of races and cultures, attracted me. Was it a wrong idea, caused by the rushing visit? Maybe! And, of...

  • Walking around Vieux Quebec

    Quebec Things to Do

    I'm from the province of Quebec and went to the Old Quebec several times in my life. But this year, we went to the La Grolla Swiss Fondue...and OMG! I can't stop talking about this place. Well, I'm a fan of swiss cheese fondue. But THAT one was far away the best one that I have ever eat. Seriously. The lady in charge is so kind, she also...

  • Basilica Notre Dame

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Montreal Things to Do

    You go to a major church/basilica/cathedral and you don't normally find too many surprises. They are almost always masterpieces in their construction and decoration. One of the things that I found surprising about Notre Dame was that the stained glass, though beautiful, was almost entirely lacking in the usual religious content! Usually stained...

  • Chateau Frontenac

    Quebec Things to Do

    The Chateau Frontenac built in 1893 by American architect Bruce Price for the Canadian Pacific Railway company. Though not as old as the surrounding old town and built specifically to attract tourist, this place, much like the Eiffel Tower in Paris has been adopted by citizens and visitors alike as the symbol of Quebec.

    Montreal Things to Do

    As I was walking along exploring I saw this building with what looked like a Chinese temple on top of it. At first I filed it away and promised myself to go check it out in a bit. Coming closer i wandered on and found the paifang, the traditional chinese archway that signifies the entry into Chinatown. Its along St Laurent, if you keep going you...

Saint Anne is known for healing and there are many cases of people that were healed after praying to Saint Anne who was the mother of Mary and who is the patron saint of Quebec.

  • Olympic Village

    Montreal Things to Do

    The Park was built for the 1976 Summer Olympics. The tower you see happens to be the largest inclined tower in the world. This created a great deal of controversy because of the expense. One has to wonder also, now that hosting the Olympic games has become so frightfully expensive...how long that can go on, since so many cities struggle to find...

  • Jazz Festival

    Montreal Things to Do

    Wow. Montreal sure is different from NY. And the Jazz festival is one prime example. It is a huge outdoor festival where most of the acts are FREE! Sure, the really big names require tickets, but from what I saw last year, the quality of free acts is fantastic! It makes summer the best time to visit Montreal!

  • Notre-Dame Basilica Cathedral

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Quebec Things to Do

    The Basilique Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Québec is the oldest parish North of Mexico. The church has a rather sad if proud history for it has been victim of bombardments and many fires. The fire of 1922 was the worst and burned the place down pretty much to the ground. What you see today built on some of the original foundation, is a replica of the...

    Quebec Things to Do

    We picked the nastiest day with a chance of rain. Wearing hooded wind breakers we headed into the vertiginous canyon to explore the imposing 74m high Sainte-Anne waterfall rumbling into its 1.2 billion year old notch. We walked across the highest pedestrian bridge in Quebec, 55 meters high. For about an hour we discovered the giant potholes,...

  • Museum of Fine Arts

    Montreal Things to Do

    Excellent comprehensive museum with extensive European and Canadian collections. The exhibits are spread out over several adjacent buildings - with the main entrance and gift shop being located across the street from the historic "core" of the facility. It's all a little complicated, and the museum doesn't seem to have a good "map" or plan to pass...

  • Plateau

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Montreal Things to Do

    We stayed far from this quarter, and only crossed it twice by car. Enough to make a decision: next time in Montreal it will have its own day. Traditional architecture, and the mixture of styles and nationalities, turn it in something we shouldn't miss . But we did! (I think that if Fernanda knew about its shops we would have found a way...)

    Montreal Things to Do

    Probably one of the more prominant festivals during the summer in Montreal. There is SO SO SO much to do. Most of St. Denis is blocked off for pedestrians during mid-July when this festival runs. There is a parade at the start of the festival and after that, the factastic floats are parked alongside the street so festival goers can take upclose...

  • Quartier Latin

    4 out of 5 stars

    Montreal Things to Do

    The Ecomusee du fier monde commemorates the humble, middle-income people who actually did the heavy lifting in creating Montreal, and all cities. It's not about the rich and famous--they have their own museums and monuments. Originally an indoor bath-house (when many didn't have private bathrooms), it dates to the 1920s. After renovations, it...

  • Funiculaire du Vieux Quebec

    Quebec Things to Do

    When you have been touring the river side streets of the Old Town do not consider walking the steep staircase up the cliff face to Chateau Frontenac for that refreshing beer or coffee. It is a very tough climb amd you would be better to walk down the steps and then pay the $1.75 to ride the funicular rail to the top and enjoy the view.

    Walk or bike along the Lachine Canal to get here. Drive if you have to. This was a lovely way to start the day. We bought gorgeous pain du chocolat, a rich latte, fresh strawberries, delicious cheese from la fromagerie and pate. Not just any pate, we had caribou/blueberry pate. It was incredible. There are picnic tables outside the market or you...

    Another festival you can experience for FREE in Montreal is the Fireworks festival. It is an international competition so the creativity and quality is second to none.

    Montreal Things to Do

    At first glance Mary Queen of the World looks very impressive. You have to think it would look much more impressive were it not in the middle of so many skyscrapers in downtown Montreal. It is a beautiful church, a small scale replica of St Peter's in Rome. It is the seat of the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Montreal and the third largest in the...

  • Parc Aquarium du Quebec

    4 out of 5 stars

    Quebec Things to Do

    So I was hyped for this, because I have a habit of going to the aquariums in every city I visit. This one had a beautiful layout but not very exciting. The aquariums themselves had local fish which weren't that thrilling. The seals, walrus, and polar bear were worth it though. The garden set-up was pretty, and there was on-hand touching of...

    Montreal Things to Do

    Early French explorers believed that the broad flowing river would eventually lead them to the far east. Hence their name "China" for the treacherous rapids which made the St. Lawrence River practically impassable without a difficult portage here in Montreal. 19th century visionaries successfully brought to reality the dream of bypassing the rapids...
