Im sure there is a few of these but I cant find them. I went to the Montreal forum and there was nothing.

Annnnyway. I'm headin to Montreal for the long weekend now instead of camping and need some suggestions on places to hit up, things to do, places to see. We are not clubbin so skip the bar suggestions kindly :)

I know there are a few montreal tribers and Im hoping to get the scoop on cheap things to do.

We are staying in a hostelslashapartment complex in Plateau Mont Royal.

thx.

Parking was suggested to me last time I went to Montreal, it was a lot of fun, cheap to get in (I think it was $5)... good times!

yeah, the biodome's fun.

you can also visit Vieux Montreal, lots of walking around in the old port. the notre dame cathedral is pretty impressive. prince arthur street is a pedestrial walkway street with lots of restos and boutiques, tam tams on sunday afternoon on the mount is fun too.

I really want to hit up old montreal as well...Its been 17 yrs since ive visited Montreal.

There is a museaum package that we can by that includes a metro pass for 3 days @ $45. Debating on whether to get it or not...

the terrace action along rue St-Denis is really happening right now. Lots of great restaurants along that street as well.

But if you really want to hang with the old Plateau *hipster* crowd, perhaps you should jaunt up to rue St-Viateur in Mile End and take an allongé at the Café Olimpico. And say hello to Jean Leloup and stuff (he's always there).

Elses, in the Plateau, on the corner of Roy and du Bullion, is another funky little corner café-bar in which to hang and schmooze and eavedrop while you troll Tribe on yer laptop. I'd suggest that as your command-central, in fact.

Well it's the first Picnik Electronik this sunday so if the weather is nice that's a solid option. As mentioned before Tam Tams are on the mountain sundays as well for a more laid back day.

I'd suggest you try some BYOW restos while you're here, some are great and keep the meal price down by not having to pay restaurant rates for the wine...Prince Arthur, St Denis and Duluth streets are full of them and all in your area.
Of course there's Schwartz on St. Laurent for smoked meat, and right beside it is Mondo Frites, amazing burgers, poutines (steak poutine, yum), fries with homemade dipping mayo etc.

I'd be happy to help, if you are looking for anything specific let me know!

St. Denis is also home to Le Cheval Blanc. If you like good beer, go there. Great little bar, with a proper zinc counter, and you can get a taster's tray of their latest offerings.

BIODOME!!

and also the botanical gardens and insectarium.

we went to this great steak place - it was off the street, down a stone alley and they had homemade pickles on the table. but i can't remember the name of it.

There's always great shopping in the old port. Or you can hike up Mnt. Royal. There's lots to do, you'll not be without that's for sure. If you stay til Sunday there's always Tam Tams. Nothing like sitting in the park listening to a crazy drum circle, weather permitting.

- Go to Schwartz' for a Montreal style smoked meat sandwich is a MUST. Don't forget to get a side of sour dills!
- Find a LaFleur's for the poutine and while you're add it order a steamed hot dog (steamé - actually i'm not sure i spelled that correctly), all dressed.
- Simon's is a great place to find cheap and cute clothing. You might find a cute hoodie or summer skirt there.
- I second the tam-tams on Sunday. Biodome is fun stuff too, as mentioned.

There's a restaurant called "The Stinking Rose" (but in French) that specialises in everything garlic. Ask them to hold the botulism.

and Le Saint-Sulpice is a total beer terrace mob scene right now, especially on the weekends. just around the corner on St-Denis from Le Cheval Blanc (which is on rue Ontario)
