Old Montreal Waterfront

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by seekwa on August 14, 2006

Montreal has done a superb job of creating many inviting and interactive experiences along its public waterfront. Just stroll and watch people, jugglers, musicians, or boats. You can also visit museums, take a tour boat, jump on a visiting naval vessel, or simply grab an ice-cream and stretch out on the shady grass and relax with a good book.

Feel a little more adventurous? Rent a bicycle or a set of roller blades and you'll be in a cast of hundreds in all age ranges, pedaling and swirling around streets and bike paths. Bikes don't just travel the waterfront; they're found throughout the city.

Just across the St. Lawrence river from Old Montreal are some of the city's well maintained and designed public parks, with swimming, garden paths, walking and biking trails, and an internationally acclaimed casino. Keep an eye out for Bond, James Bond.

Be sure to check out the local event calendars for world class music and art festivals, or the annual Gran Prix auto race. In the summer there's always some kind of concert or event taking place on Montreal's historic waterfront.
