Some really nice views to be had here, as well as a good people watching spot. The free wifi is also particularly useful! It was super windy when I went (I almost lost my bag!) so make sure you are better prepared than me haha.

Collectively with my visit to Old Montreal, the Old Port area provided a nice place to relax and stroll by the river with the old city in view. There was plenty of places to walk about with a few decent places to take some photos....More

This is a great active port for cruiselines, fishing and touring boats and an active park and trail. It is vibrant and alive.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

I went with my 5 years old. He did the small ones for children and both the 13 feet tall. It was very fun. He couldn't go on the higher ones but i'm sure a teenager can.

Garage parking is best, although metered on-street parking is also an option. Meter maids are very thorough and will be sure to ticket any lapsed meters, however, so a garage may be best. Most hotels offer garaged valet... More
