What's Montreal Like?

With the river to the north and a mountaintop near the middle of the island, Montreal is easy to navigate even for first time visitors. Mount Royal - or more properly le Plateau Mont-Royal - is the hilltop overlooking the city that gave Montreal its name. Its modern incarnation boasts scenic overviews of the city and a playground along with beautifully landscaped grounds. Montreal's downtown is compact, yet packed with architecture both old and new, restaurants, shops and boutiques. It is dominated by streets that run east to west along the island, including Saint-Catherine street with its shops and market. Crescent and Bishop Streets are both lined with stylish bars and nightclubs. Old Montreal and the Old Port preserve the history of the sixteenth century French settlers with charming period architecture and cobblestone streets, along with restaurants and night clubs. When it comes to cuisine, a Montreal smoked meat sandwich is a must - a type of smoked corned beef sandwich; along with the expected French cuisine, visitors will find a thriving multi-ethnic dining scene with offerings at every price point.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Montreal

While many Montrealers can speak both languages, it is wise for travelers to muster whatever French phrases they can as the gesture alone is much appreciated.
