The history of Canada is intertwined with the history of this University, the academic heart of the country regardless of language or background. From Ernest Rutheford in science to Frank Scott in law and poetry, the people who taught and learned here helped to fashion...More
This huge campus in close proximity to downtown Montreal is another beauty of the city. If you've never experienced the real American campus-style universities in your life it's well worth going for a walk on this campus and imagining how it would be to study...More

You have a lot packed in your itinerary...I also think you mean Mortmorency Falls in QC, not Montgomery...

day 2 is too much for people who can't "walk excessively." Only go to Mount Royal if the weather is pleasant. You can leave St Catherine St and Crescent street for the evening, especially if it's a Thursday or Friday when shops are open until 9pm. But if you're not into the club and party scene don't bother with Crescent street at all. I'd skip Jean-Talon market in March as it's still quite limited and drab at that time of year.
Montreal for 6 nights late March, split stay? (8 Replies)
Visiting Montreal for the first time in late March with my daughter. We will tour Mcgill University, go to a Hockey game and beyond that no agenda except very excited to be heading to Quebec! Thinking about splitting our stay with 3 nights downtown and 3 nights in old Montreal. Any advice welcome.

No need to split... the distance between Old Montreal and downtown is negligible. Downtown is more convenient for McGill, Bell Centre, museums, shopping, etc. Better access to transit and underground city as well. Old Montreal is picturesque, but not much happening down there in winter. March is still late winter - bear that in mind when planning.
