Still has signs of the industrialisation that took place many years ago. Now just a nice place to bike/stroll or even Sun bathe! Feels like a neighborhood with a community spirit. Market nearby. Not surrounded by restaurants and yuppies.

This is one of the nicest walks one can have in Montreal. It is also possible to rent a bike or a kayak.

There's nothing quite like getting away from the bustle of Montreal for a few hours to walk, run, or bike along the Canal-de-Lachine, especially in the warmer months of the year.

We rented bikes from Velo Montreal and rode from our lodging on some of the many and well mapped bike trails in the city. Starting near the old city, we enjoyed a satisfying ride along the canal to the end at the musee de plein-air....More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
