A December 2002 trip
to Montreal by Lori Lynn
Quote: Why travel across the ocean when all you need to do is drive north to Montreal? Amongst the oldest cities in North America, Montreal exudes the vibrant diversity of major European cities with a unique French Canadian flair.
Attraction | "Biodome"
Interactive areas are available in the lower foyer for the children to explore on their own what they know and learned in the exhibit. Many people miss this area. A cafeteria is available on-site. While you're there, take the elevator ride to the top of the Olympic Stadium for a spectacular view of Montreal.

In July and August there is an international fireworks competition which takes place in the evenings 2-3 times a week. The best vantage point is from the island (La Ronde) or from the bridge over the island which is blocked to traffic for this occasion. Get there early and take a blanket to sit on. This is generally better than the works at Disneyworld.
