I loved Canal-de-Lachine every summer when I had a chance to go jogging or taking a walk along the river. Wearing comfortable walking shoes helps you enjoy the sightseeing, forgetting the time passing by quickly.

As a Montrealer, I've used the paths adjacent to the canal for cross-country skiing, cycling and jogging. It's an essentially flat narrow stretch of park extending 21 km. from Old Montreal to the Rene Levesque Park at the confluence of the Lachine canal and St. Lawrence river. The park itself has ample space for picnicking and viewing the freighters traversing... More

Sort of out of the way, if you don't have a car. Yes, the metro will take you to a certain spot, but then, its a bus.

Were the 3 of us. As the area is a nice one, one could go and visit this location as well as surrounding. Count a good 90 minutes. Take the time to stroll around and stop for a coffee.

You can go to Atwater Market, get a nice coffee and then start walking along the Lachine Canal. You will get a great view of the Montreal skyline by walking along the canal on the opposite side.

This is the picturesque long way from the Old Port Montreal till Marina Lachine which can be done by walk (be ready for a 15 km walk one end), bike, rollers and what else can be transporting you from one end to another except the car. The privilege of living in Montreal gives access to lots of amazing places like... More

One of my favorite place for a nice bike ride. Not too crowded and very clean. From where I depart (Ville St-Pierre), I can go to Old Montreal or to Lachine.

At least once a year we try to rent Bixi bikes and ride along the canal after a short stop at Atwater Market to buy a picnic lunch. It is a great way to spend a nice sunny day in Montreal.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Bakeries, markets, restaurants, and buffets crowd the brightly graffitied streets of Chinatown, the city's aromatic destination for pan-Asian cuisine. Distinguished at its entry points by towering vermillion paifang gates, the compact neighborhood acts as a focal point for the Chinese community, hectic with educational facilities, cultural centers, acupuncturists, and foreign-language newspapers. Especially vibrant in the warmer months, when the sweet smell of dragon beard candy along the pedestrian walks of Rue de la Gauchetière signal the beginning of the outdoor street fair season, Chinatown is a treasure hunter's dream, with enough knickknack and curiosity shops to tempt even the pickiest shoppers. The convivial vibe picks up after dark, when the area's active nightlife offers evening crowds their choice of drink, dance, and midnight snacks of pho or oysters. Chinatown's mix of new and old, with herbal remedies being sold alongside pop-culture DVDs, gives the area its own animated brand of moxie.
