I parked on the street (paid) and just walked. I went in December, so there weren't alot of outdoor activities happening. There are great small shops along the port. The view of the frozen port waters and the parking ships was nice. There were horse carriages bring around couples. The Natrel Skating rink was the main attraction. You can bring... More

Loved it! I go often and there is always something to see or do. Just watching the ships pass is impressive, but there is fireworks in the summer, cafes and restaurants and so much more!! Just a beautiful place to walk in the summer months.

Amazing area. This part is the oldest area of Montreal. It is full of restaurants, bars and small shops. The old Port is really nice, specially in winter where you can ice skating. Moreover, we were lucky enough to be at the same time as Igloofest.

Picturesque views of where Montreal first started. You can walk along the waterfront and pretty much see a lot of the classic iconic buildings as Montreal is a compact city. Waterfront contains various bars, restaurants and shopping opportunities. During winter there is outdoor ice skating which gets pretty full and there is the Science Museum too. More activities/attractions are open... More

Fireworks & Music, surrounded by great old architecture and cobblestone streets. Fine dining as well as casual eats, hip pubs and upscale cocktail bars, and nearby cozy places to sleep. All only a few blocks walking distance. Best NYE ever!

We were here for New Years Eve. The music was good and there were screens for those who were not close. Very busy and crowded the closer you got to midnight. Would like to see this in the summer as well.

We spent New Year's Eve (including the fireworks celebration) in Old Port. The crowd was great, and the bands were very nice. There are several good restaurants and good bars in the neighborhood, and the waterfront is pretty.

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighbourhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighbourhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) make up an invigorated area dedicated to "Space for Life." Around the Olympic Village's arenas and stadiums, Rue Sherbrooke welcomes exploration of its sculpture gardens decorated in the works of Jean-Paul Riopelle and its museum culture headed by the historical Château Dufresne. Maisonneuve Park offers interactive experiences at its bio-dome, insectarium, planetarium, and botanical gardens. For a change of scene, the gentrified space along Rue Ontario Est is packed with the city's newest, edgiest cafes, where an imaginative, youthful crowd sips foamy cappuccinos. A visit here is incomplete without stepping into the vast halls of the Maisonneuve Market, with flower stalls, wine depots, and local produce.
