The well to do will be seen here shopping at the boutiques of all kinds. Although the restaurant choices can be limited depending upon where you are shopping, it is the most friendly, sophisticated place to shop that isn't a touristy. Have fun and enjoy the architecture which I compare to Chevy Chase, Maryland or Georgetown in Washington, DC. Enjoy!

We took a stroll thru this street more than once. There are a lot of shops and it looks like locals and tourists alike crowd it every weekend. If you like being around a lot of people definitely go here.

Watch out for the 15% sales tax! Some malls are connected underground. Walking is best as parking is like NY

Boring eateries and uneven sidewalk. Watch your step. Sidewalks need attention and street people population growing

Five or six blocks of Ste.-Catherine east of Berri have been designated an LGBT village area, and cut off from vehicle traffic in the late afternoon/evening (at least on the weekends). It was so refreshing to see people of all persuasions (including straight) enjoying themselves and freely expressing themselves. What a mature attitude for the city to take! I hope... More

This is a typical shopping street and you will be able to find virtually anything. Nothing really special but convenient to have along one road. Easily accessible by public transit and connects to underground in several spots as well.

Just about every store on this street. Very similar to Yonge Street in Toronto. Lots of shops and restaurants.

While not too kid friendly, there are plenty of shops and restaurants around here to enjoy your day. A nice, fast-moving vibe to it.

If you are desperate to shop - go here. Being from OC California I don't need to shop on vacation. There are XXX theaters and it is a bit seedy in my opinion. Better to go up a couple of blocks by the Ritz Carlton and shop if you have to shop.
