Rue Ste-Catherine, its intersecting streets, and its parallel main streets — especially Rue Sherbrooke and Boulevard de Maissonneuve — made for a neighborhood that struck this first-time American visitor to Montreal as a cross of Chicago and Washington. Yes, I know Montreal is “Canada’s New York.” But it reminded me of those other cities, especially Rue-Sainte Catherina. The street is... More

We had a blast on Saturday night roaming along St-Catherine's street hanging out in pubs, restaurants and other adult entertainment type of places.

Walk the stretch between Guy and McGill College to get a taste of the many flavors of Montreal, from ethnic, trendy, to high end stores. In the summertime it is a must. High end sports cars are on show on Peel and Crescent during Grand Prix week-end. In the winter, tuck into the underground to continue your walk whenever you... More

Traditional street in Montreal, not far from Universite du Montreal, a must see place and is a nice time in the city, especially during the fall season. Montreal is one of the best cities of Canada.

Great shopping strip - whether its retail therapy you are after or plain window shopping or a stroll to people watch. Cafes and restaurants for breaks or drinks along the way. Much better then the Underground City,yes,you can keep warm and dry but so overheated in winter that its stuffy. The quality of the shops are better on Rue Ste.Catherine... More

Lots of people, all the time. Lots of great shopping, all the time! There are so many stylish people in Montreal and plenty of interesting little shops to discover your own. If you like to shop, you cannot miss this street.

Great to just walk around, do some people watching, and get a sense of Montreal. My favorite part of Rue Ste. Catherine is how friendly people are and also how cosmopolitan it is.
