This is a must see while you are in town even though it is a very busy section. It is vibrant and fun for people

I wanted to buy a specific item for a friend. Montreal is not full of souvenir places, perhaps too classy a city. We did find a couple in the Entertainment district.

Although there is so much construction going on currently, this is still where all the action is. Street performers, beautiful history and architecture all around, restaurants and bars. Great for strolling any time of day. Safe and clean. Recommended

Spent the entire first day just wandering around and enjoying the ambiance. Lots of touristy stores and restaurants. Stop for a beer or coffee but eat somehere else. Unless you can eat at Tommys - then definitely enjoy!

Very beautiful. Clean and gorgeous flowers all around. Lots of little shops and restaurants. Lots of construction around but still very nice to wonder around.

I really like the architecture. It reminded me very much of Paris in a certain way. Also, plenty of nice restaurants and bars, but even just walking around. There are plenty of things t do.

Very nice to visit on a pretty day. Good parks and people watching areas and great shops and restaurants. During the cold winters you can spend time in the underground area.
