    • Club Soda in safe area? (St Laurent/St Catherine St area)

      by dredarin Online Now Mar 21, 2014 at 8:04 AM


      I'm thinking of going to a concert at Club Soda when I visit Montreal in the fall, is this venue in a safe area to be walking at night? It's near Saint-Laurent Boul & St Catherine Street, I heard this area mentioned as a bit of a red-light district in some of the warnings. I'm planning on staying about a 10-15 minutes walk from the club, is there any direction from this club that is better/worse to be walking through late at night?

      Thanks, G

    • Curiosity Shop? Macabre, Bizarre

      by sabrinajo Online Now Nov 28, 2013 at 6:09 PM

      I'm looking for a curiosity shop in Montreal. A place that might have skulls, pinned insects, strange old medical equipment, bizarre objects, weird sculptures, old books, artifacts etc. I have an uncle who's a collector from Hong Kong, he is dying to see Montreal's dark side. If you have any shop names or addresses please let me know!

    • Walking around outside in December

      by beccappa Online Now Sep 7, 2013 at 10:22 PM

      Hi, we are planning to visit Montreal in December - we are from Australia so have NO idea of how the cold will feel - and we were wondering if we would be able to walk around outside for long periods of time. We have gone online and bought coats and snow boots, however, we are still concerned about walking outside as a main way of sightseeing. Should we make alternate plans, subway, taxi and such?

      I'm coming to Montreal for a year to work (I'll be based at UdeM). I was thinking of getting an apartment in the Cote-des-neiges district (close to the university). I've heard mixed things about this area.

      How nice/safe is the area around Avenue Lennox and what about the area around the Cote-des-Neiges metro station?

      Nelligan Hotel vs Le Square Phillips

      by goingplaces2 Online Now Aug 8, 2013 at 1:44 PM

      Our plans to Montreal have changed. There are now only three of us (2 adults and one teenager) traveling. Despite my secret desire to stay at Hotel Nelligan, I booked a suite at Le Square Phillips because of it's excellent reviews and spacious rooms. Since I now have the option of changing hotels, which one is best? Thanks in advance for your responses.

      Hello, I'll be visiting Montreal for 1 week and traveling to Prince Edward Island for another. I know there are a few options when it comes to prepaid services, but I was wondering if anyone would have a recommendation. I need a prepaid sim card with a service that would allow me to make and receive calls, send and receive texts and have some data option for things like google maps, etc. Any recommendations? Thanks.

      Montreal to New Brunswick

      by PansyK Online Now May 31, 2013 at 12:05 PM

      Me and my friends are planning a four day road trip to New Brunswick from Montreal.

      This will be our first visit to the province. We were wondering what city(ies) should we visit. (We are not planning to party late night, outdoor activities will be our preference).

      Given that we are all students, budget is also our consideration ($500 per person)

      Also, is it better to drive from Montreal or shall we take train/bus?

Unfortunately, our ability to navigate steps, hills, and long walks will be somewhat limited.

      Any recommendations in Montreal?
