Tourism in Montreal
Our language school is situated downtown Montreal at the junction of Sherbrooke Street and Union Avenue. Sherbrooke Street is referred to by the locals as “The Golden Mile” as it hosts the majority of the city’s upscale residences as well as historic buildings. Just down the road you’ll find the Holt Renfrew department store, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and the Ritz Carlton Hotel.
Montreal is brimming with life throughout all four seasons of the year. Some of the top sites and activities in Montreal include:
- Crescent Street: The diverse variety of galleries, cafes, restaurants, and bars makes this street one of Montreal’s top tourist attractions. Many festivals and events are held on this street, such as the Formula 1 Weekend.
- Old Montreal: The old architecture and original cobblestone streets of Montreal from the early years of the city have been maintained in the historic district of Old Montreal. The best way to take in all of the beautiful historical sites is to take a leisurely ride in a horse-drawn carriage through the magnificent district.
- Montreal Bike Fest: Various cycling activities are offered at this week-long Mountain Bike Fest. The grand finale of this thrilling event consists of 11,000 cyclists taking to the streets for Un tour la nuit (a night tour), and then the Tour de l’Île de Montréal. More than 30,000 participants turn up each year for the largest cycling event in North America.
Montreal’s climate is quite typical for southern Canada. In the summer time it is warm with average high temperatures of 26°C (79°F) and lows of 16°C (61°F). During the winter the weather becomes very cold, snowy, icy, and windy. Average high temperatures are just -5°C (23°F) and the average seasonal low is -13°C (9°F). With extreme temperatures in summer and winter, spring and fall are usually mild, but there is always the risk of a sudden temperature change.
Culture in Montreal
Montreal is often referred to as "Canada's Cultural Capital". Most of Canada’s French language television productions, radio, theater, film, multimedia and print publishing companies can be found in Montreal. Of course, since Montreal is Canada’s French language capital in a primarily English-speaking country, this has created a wonderful mix of cultures and a generally open-minded and liberal population.
The city is alive with jazz, visual arts, theater, music and dance. During the summer, the downtown area plays host to a constant program of festivals and parades. The Just for Laughs comedy festival is perhaps the most well known of these, being the biggest comedy festival in the world.
Besides the cultural events and festivals, much of the culture that is found in Montreal comes from their world-renowned abundance of churches. There are so many churches throughout the city that Montreal has earned the nickname la ville aux cent clochers (the city of a hundred bell towers). Mark Twain even wrote: "This is the first time I was ever in a city where you couldn't throw a brick without breaking a church window.”
Shopping in Montreal
Montreal is a great city for shopping with its many markets, boutiques and malls. Montreal is particularly held in high esteem by lovers of perfume and jewelry.
If you want to do some serious shopping, these are some of the most popular shopping areas in Montreal: Herbrooke Street, Greene Avenue, Sherbrooke Street, Old Montreal, and don't forget the underground shopping complex of Place Ville Marie.
