For everything from small stores, to department stores, like The Baie Company, this is the place. On this street, you can shop for almost anything.

Rue Ste. Catherine is the "hub" of Montreal. No where else in the city will you find the same variety - and amount - of stores, restaurants, bars and even strip clubs. There really is something for everyone and it's worth visiting both during the day and later at night when the street takes on a completely different personality.

Everything is located on Rue St. Catherine. This street in Old Montreal has some of everything, name brand retail, trendy restaurants, plenty of metro stations, entertainment, etc. I always try to lodge at a hotel very near St. Catherine when I visit Montreal.

The last time I went and visited St. Catherine's Street, I spent a good deal of time there during the day shopping and had some good food along the way. Once the sun goes down, this street transforms into a completely different place where the neon signs advertising the various clubs and venues. Make sure to see both facets of... More

I was told to visit St. Catherine's St. but it turns out to be nothing more than a giant mall but on both sides of a street. With an even bigger mall underground. Prices are higher than the same stuff in the states so really nothing to see or shop for. Spent more time sitting in coffee shops people watching... More

Always a must hit when going to Montreal. Accessible from the underground city and with lots of great shopping, always a great spot to hit up. Anyone from outside of Quebec needs to spend some time in Simons, by far, my favorite department store (on a side note, so happy they are branching out of La Belle Province). On the... More

Even in the cold temperatures we braved walking on this historical street. There is shopping for everyone, super trendy and hot fashions! Lots of places to eat especially in the underground city. Very safe, busy...traffic is pretty good at watching for pedestrians. Super place for people watching. A little something for everyone.
