Spend a day and you will want to move to Montreal. Such a relaxing place, and the best of all is that everywhere you go is clean and people are courteous. Now I do not understand why people go to that garbage Manhattan and not Montreal.

Stayed at a hotel on this street. Plenty of different types of shops and restaurants, and it's right downtown in Montreal near McGill. Nothing more to say than that.

The area around the Musee des Beaux Arts was especially rewarding to explore. Elegant shops and stores including Holt Renfrew, varied older architecture, not so crowded and city-center busy as sections of St Catherine we saw. Pleasant cafés to visit along the way.

Walk or drive around on Sherbrooke Street to experience the Montreal architecture, shops, top class hotel and McGill University campus. If you want to get a feel of downtown Montreal Sherbrooke can be a good drive or walk. It is close by to the shopping district at St Catherine which runs parallel to it.

The street is very interesting because you can see a different architectural designs. However, the street is overwhelmed by traffic.

Whilst at the Canada Summer Games in August of 2013 - we were able to explore Sherbrooke and surrounding areas. The setting is absolutely beautiful with the river running through Sherbrooke and the hills in the background. Sherbrooke a very clean and friendly city. Lots of places to eat, hike and explore.

Ok, nice houses, a lot of traffic, one of Montreal's longest roads, and noisy. Nice surroundings, but the north side is nicer than the south side.

Depending on where you take this street which crosses the city, you will find that it is uneven in terms of attractiveness. The best and prettiest section is right in the heart of downtown between St-Denis and heading west to Westmount.

What a great area to walk around, stop for a coffee or do some shopping. Sure, you can get a coffee at Second Cup or Starbucks, but if you want a REALLY great coffee, stop in to Cavallero for the best cup you'll ever have and don't forget to buy a bottle of olive oil from their huge selection.

Interesting architecture, in particular, from the end of the 19th century. A 30-minute walk from McGill College Street to Victoria Avenue in Westmount is pleasant any time of year. Highlights: McGill University, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, College de Montreal, Dawson College, Westmount Park.
