“For unreformed shopaholics”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

You can get pretty much whatever you need on this long shopping street: clothing, food, electronics (at eastern end).

“Walk this street!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

What can I say, endless shops and malls, and variety including the iconic Hudson Bay Company, clubs, theaters, shows, ... And good prices during the many sales. Easy to walk the entire distance, and stop by the many restaurants along the side-streets. Nice way for a tourist to watch Montreal.

“Montreal's 5th Ave”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

We are from NY - thought this was a fantastic avenue - a combination of Greenwich Village and 5th Avenue - do not miss this fantastic avenue. Shopping galore, a great jazz festival in the summer and a variety of restaurants to choose from!

“Wow...a decline”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

It has been about 20 years since I last visited Montreal. The decline in some areas is distressing. The graffiti and trash on the sidewalks is appalling.
