A busy street that crosses downtown that is full of shops, restaurants and night life. In fact, it was the only street rocking in downtown on A recent Sunday night. You will eventually get to it if you want to do some serious shopping.

What a great place to visit. There are lots of places to shop and quite a few good restaurants to eat at. Everything from high end eating to quick takeout food. All of this walkable from a number of close by hotels.

Nice shopping if you like malls. Lots of chain stores. Most large stores connect to underground shopping. The metro is nearby so you don’t need a car.

When ever I am in Montreal I take a walk (or two or three) down Ste. Catherine. Lots of stores, restaurants and banks for ATM withdrawals. Quite a variety and always fun for people watching as well.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
