How is the night life in the old city? And what time do people start heading out. I'm looking for a mixed crowd of all ages.
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!
I have a fear of heights and am planning to take a bus tour to the Falls and Basilica. Other than the obvious of not walking the bridge over the falls, are there any other points in the route where I might have a problem with the heights; e.g., driving on the side of mountains with sweeping views of the valley below or vistas from Manoir Montmorency, etc.
What time is the last ferry crossing in the evening in October?

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?
We're interested in visiting Montreal and Quebec City. Would Chicoutimi have much to offer, or would we be disappointed?
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?

I noticed that there is no direct highway from Quebec to Maine, and was wondering if that influences where people from Quebec spend their vacations? Do you ever go to Maine? Or do you go to Vermont instead, since it seems like it is easier to get there? Thanks.
About 20 years ago, with my family I visited a lovely country restaurant I believe on an island outside or near Quebec city. After we parked, to reach the well preserved building, we were driven in by horse and carriage. As I recall the food was, at that time, considered haute cuisine - very fine Quebecois regional food. All in all the memory is preserved as it having been a very special place and experience. Is there a place like this still in existence?
My hotel is La Tour Belvedere located at 2175 Maisonneuve Blvd W Montreal, QC
what are my options to get there from the airport besides taxi?
I see there are 2 options -
Take the 747 bus to Berri-Uqam Station. then use the metro - does the 24 hour $9 metro ticket cover both the bus & metro? is the bus express from the airport to Berri-Uqam Station?
Take the airport shuttle bus (L'AEROBUS MOTOR BUS EXPRESS )to Berri-Uqam Station. There is supposed to be a free mini-van at Berri-Uqam Station to 30 hotels. Where can i get the list of hotels the mini-van goes to?
Which is the recommended option? The one most people use?

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.
I took a holiday in Canada this year, loved it, and I am now planning to take an immersion course in the French language in Quebec because everything in the Province is written in English and French so I should gain vocabulary and hopefully grammar and fluency, through osmosis. To this end I want to find out where I can get 'home accomodation' (family, shared apartment or house etc.) where the immersion process is continued. I expect to stay for 3 or 4 months - any helpful experiences, ideas etc? Thanks - your feedback would be great!
We're planning to stay at the Le Square Phillips hotel but dread their $25.00 ($22.00 plus tax) parking fee. Is there alternative parking nearby that's less expensive yet safe? Thanks in advance for all responses.
Is it possible to go to Saint-Jean-Port-Joli by train from Montreal?
My husband and I will be visiting Quebec September 25-October 5. This is my tentative itinerary, but I'm stuck at the end of it and need assistance:
Sept 25-29 Quebec City
Sept 29 rent car, Montmorency Falls & Ile d'Orleans (night in Ile d'Orleans?)
Sept 30 St. Anne Beaupre, Canyon St. Anne/gorge, Baie St. Paul
Oct 1 Baie St. Paul, Ile aux Coudres, La Malbaie
We want to do a whale watching tour out of Tadoussac, but it leaves about 9am (needing to arrive by 8:15). Should we get up early to make the tour on Oct 2 or drive to Tadoussac, spend the night, then do it the morning of the 3?
After than, I'm stymied. I'd like to do a fjord cruise. Is Route 172 from Tadoussac to Chicoutimi more scenic or would it be better to cross over and go back down 138 to take 170 up?
Also, am I allowing too much or not enough time for the first days? Anything we should see that isn't listed? Too much time in QC?
Thanks in advance for your help & advice!
