Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Destination(s): Montreal

Wintertime in Montreal, a city that is snow-covered for half the year, can be magical. Skating, shopping and taking in the Christmas atmosphere can be at once amazing and overwhelming. read more about Walking in a Winter Wonderland

St Denis Street is a more upscale shopping and dining street. From Sherbrooke Street to Mount Royal Avenue boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants are packed together; and pedestrians clutter the sidewalks. The keyword here is location. People walk along St Denis Street to see and be seen. There is something for everyone along this street. The overall ambience is of affluent consumerism during the day; however, this merges seamlessly into the traditionally more grungy scene of the Montreal nightlife as the sun sets. read more about St Denis Street

The Montreal Canadiens are an institution in this town. Far from being just a sporting event, seeing a game in person can be described by the most passionate fans as an almost religious experience. Always energy-filled it is worth going to see the Canadiens play even if you sit in the back rows drinking beer with the cantankerous old men who curse at the team in words you won't ever hear outside of the province of Québec. Call it a learning experience. read more about Montreal Canadiens

Old Montreal is the area immediately surrounding the Old Port. It was the first developed part of the city of Montreal, as reflected through its architecture and narrow cobbled streets. Many of the more historically significant buildings are in this area of town, as well as the Champ-de-Mars, an old parade ground where citizens used to be able to come to enjoy the spectacle of public hangings. It is very tourist friendly. The Place Jacques Cartier, an open square leading from the town hall (Hôtel de Ville) down to the water, is the venue for shows at all times of the year. read more about Old Montreal

Visiting the Old Port area throws visitors back to the days of the city's founding with its narrow cobbled streets and old style of architecture. This tourist-oriented area of town recalls Montreal's history with museums and restaurants set in buildings dating back to the origin of the city – in the mid 1600s. Horse-drawn carriages (calèches) line up to provide transportation to the foot-weary, but the Old Port is pleasantly pedestrian friendly and an exploration on foot guarantees the time to stop and peruse at will. read more about Old Port

The Plateau Mont Royal is a pleasing mish-mash of restaurants, shops and apartments. Considered one of the best places to live in North America, the cultural life on the Plateau is diverse and rich. It is easy to forget that the rest of the city exists when at your doorstep there is anything that you could possibly want: lively show venues, friendly green spaces, cozy restaurants and long boutique-lined boulevards. The Portuguese community is still strong in this area; reflected through the abundance of Portuguese restaurants and shops, as well as through the sounds of everyday life you hear on the side streets between the Main and St. Denis Street, South of Mount-Royal Avenue. read more about Plateau Mont-Royal

  • Montreal, H5A 1J6

The Underground city is one of Montreal's claims to fame. Its kilometers of passageways under the city allow shoppers and tourists to get to where they are going without the hassles posed by the sometimes seemingly interminable winter snows and slushy streets. One particularly interesting bit of this subterranean maze is in the Cours Mont-Royal, near Peel Street. At one point the atrium of the mall extends several stories high and the facades of the stores facing the atrium (inside the mall) are made to reflect exterior building design. read more about Underground City

  • Montreal, H2L 3M6

The Parc Lafontaine is open year in and year out. In the summer time ducks and geese wait by the shores of the pond for passers-by to feed them, and in the winter time that same expanse of water is frozen over and turns into one of the city's largest skating rinks. Christmas lights are strung through the trees and softly-piped music keeps the beat as the skaters make their way around the rink. Yes, this is a great place for a date. read more about Parc Lafontaine
