“Great shopping to be had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

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 street level there are lots of shops to travel in and out of. Continue down the street a while and you will come across the old Forum. If you are a hockey buff, defintely worth a walk through to see all of the Canadiens memorabilia.

“Gotta walk on this street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

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.

“Shop til you drop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

This was a favorite of both my husbands and mine. It was so close to our hotel and the shopping was wonderful. I managed to find a few treats for myself that I am very happy with. Everything you are looking for can be found on this street.
