Going to Montreal
We are going to Montreal for 3-4 days at the end of May. We will be going by train from Albany, NY. Can anyone recommend a nice, reasonable hotel? Judging from the AAA guide, it seems that there are tons of hotels in downtown Montreal and I'm having trouble picking one. Also, what are the "must-see" sights? We won't have a car. Our group consists of mom, dad, 2 kids (6 & 3) and grandparents (early 70's). dtlustig
Can't recommend a hotel, cause we always stay with my grandmother. Must-do's:
Caleche (carriage ride) either through Old Montreal or on Mont Royal (park). Very touristy, but very worth the $30. I always loved it as a kid and now my kids do too. Walking around Old Montreal is good for those who like old buildings!
Biodome (in the ex-Olympics stadium)--this is a very cool living natural history museum, with 4 habitats. Nearby (walking distance) is the Insectarium which is pretty cool too--not worth its own trip (except for entomologists), but good to combine with Biodome.
If you have a car, check out Viateur Street bagels, open 24 hrs--to see bagels cooked in a wood burning fire. montreal bagels are wonderful. Near Old Montreal is an IMAX theatre if you want to do that, and there's a science museum right there too (Exploratorium type). Have fun!
