See by Sea

Take your sea legs and venture out to the St. Lawrence. Beautiful walking space, great place to bike or people watch.

All sorts of fun along the waterside. Zip lines, rides, activities, and fun shops, and treats. Not to mention all the beautiful buildings, architecture, and views.

We just spent some time walking around but you can do a zip line, walk the rope rigging, rent a pedal car or boat or a bike, take a ride in a horse drawn carriage, eat at dozens of restaurants, and shop for everything from souvenirs to furs. Or - like me - you can just enjoy the scene and... More

Lots of walking. The Imax was closed due to strikers. There are shops and restaurants. And just enjoying the view.

Area filled with interesting things to do, great and not so great food places. St Paul Street is a beautiful place to walk night and day. On the esplanade, you pass the science museum, amusement area, duck boats. Interestingly renovated in some areas, not so much (grain towers are falling apart but the guide told us they're on the National... More

Filled with visitors, the old port of Montreal is filled with little treasure troves waiting to be excavated, from craft shops to restaurants, cultural venues to play areas. The old port has boat trips starting from there. The Science Center and our favourite family pastime the IMAX movie are both great for children and adults. At the Eastern side of... More

Great place to spend the day. Many excellent restaurants and bars. Don't worry if you don't speak French, as most staff also can speak English

A walk along the old port, you can also find horse & carriage rides. . Great stuff, if you can dodge all the roadworks etc, which was absolutely EVERYWHERE.! I would not advise driving around if you did not know the streets well, as the roads are dug up on almost every corner with delays everywhere, so it is much... More

Don't do this on a 90 degree day... but take some time to stroll along the river walk here. But there isn't really much to see... so do this if you are in the area but don't walk an extra mile for the experience.

Staying in Quartier International

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today the Quartier International is like a transversal piece of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a convention center and retail space with a multi-colored glass exterior and an equally bold interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted city squares, with extra-wide sidewalks meant to encourage long strolls and shaded benches available for absorbing the atmosphere. Fresh air and promenades characterize the area, from the foliage of Victoria Square to the fountain of Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, while the restaurants along Rue Saint-Antonie Ouest and Metro stops modeled in the Parisian style give off European glamour.
