I was told by multiple people to go here for shopping, but honestly there was nothing there I couldn't find at home and for less cost. I couldn't be bothered with staying very long. If you are here in the summer and have seen all the sights then I'm sure you can find some things to do on this street.

We spent a bit of time on Rue Ste. Catherine while we visited Montreal. It has a lot of shops and malls. (We visited between Boul. St. Laurent and Rue Bishop). There are not a lot of places to eat unless you want a commercialized overly-busy chain restaurant, though we really enjoyed the Baton Rouge at Places des Arts. It... More

That's rue Prince-Arthur, folks! Ste-Catherine is a non-descript commercial street, a mix of small shops and malls. Nothing you won't find anywhere else in the world ... Prince-Arthur is a pretty residential street (just 5 blocks north of Ste-Catherine), that turns into a pedestrian mall east of St-Laurent St. A tourist trap in the summer. I am not a visitor....

Montreal is known to have the best night life in Canada. Most people from Toronto flock to the city solely for it's more "liberal" night life. St. Catherine street is the main hub of all night life activity and is definitely a great place to spend your night bar/club hopping.

This is the street to visit when you're visiting town. Most of the big shopping places are on this street or really close and all the action takes place on Ste-Catherine street!

When I had arrived in Canada in 1994, I couldn't believe my eyes, that such thing could have existed. I mean so long street, that is the St.-Catherine Rue. It is 11.5 km long and stretches all the way from the north, that is, from the Park St-Clement, near the net of the railway tracks and straight downward to the... More

Sainte-Catherine is a great place for a day of shopping. It gets very busy on the sidewalk as well as in the streets during rush hour, but that's a given.
