Montreal starts out like a big American city, with its network of highways hugging skyscrapers and plunging into the heart of wide avenues cut at right angles. But on closer inspection, Montreal is a city like a kaleidoscope, enriched by an astonishing mix of communities.
Montreal cultivates a gentle way of life bordering on indolence: affable inhabitants, cafés where one takes one’s time, small shops.
As for nightlife, it’s happening almost every night of the week! An intense energy that serves a varied cultural program, and tinges human relations with simplicity and warmth, making Montreal evenings unique.
But what to do in Montreal? There is plenty outing ideas in Montreal: scour the docks of the Old Port and stroll along the St. Lawrence River; wander through the always lively streets of Old Montreal; visit the Museum of Fine Arts and its wonderful collections; climb to the top of Mount Royal and enjoy the beautiful aerial view of the city; take a pleasant bike ride along the Lachine Canal; enjoy the vibrant nightlife; raft down the Lachine rapids: stroll through the Jean-Talon market; attend a field hockey game; in winter, skate on the Bonsecours basin while admiring the frozen St. Lawrence; discover the “underground city”. .. No matter what time of day or time of year, there is always something to do in Montreal.
