Montreal is a phenomenal tourist destination, a city that stands alone in North Americain in so many respects. With the intrigueing mix of two cultures and languages, the cities long history, its propensity for the arts, its endless festivals and celebrations, the fine dining and night life and of course the beautiful woman; there's not much to be missed. You'll also find professional football, baseball, and soccer here, along with one of hockey's legends, the Montreal Canadians.  

With the reclamation of the waterfront, the opening of the Lachine Canal to kayakers, the 300 kilometres of bike paths, along with the nature parks' initiative, Montreal is adding yet another dimension to its already broad appeal and of course another reason to visit.

Surrounding Regions

Montreal is an island city, located within the St Lawrence River. Bridges and tunnels are a fact of life, providing the links to the neighboring regions, including the island of Laval directly to the north. Off island there are four surrounding tourism regions.

  • To the south and the east is the region of Monteregie (Hwy 20, 40, 10) which is famous for amongst other things, the number of excellent bike paths within it's boundaries.
  • Further south and to the east you will find the Eastern Townships (Hwy 10) which is well known for it's it's country charms, skiing and more recently its mountain biking.
  • In the north above Montreal and Laval is the world renown area of the Laurentians (Hwy 15, 13, 117) with a well earned reputation for outdoor activities particularly snow boarding, downhill and cross country skiing along with great restaurants and nightlife
  • Just to the north east is the beautiful area of the Lanaudiere (Hwy 40, 25, 125) which shares the same natural attributes of the Laurentians and provides a peaceful alternative.

Cities, Towns and Villages

Montreal use to be made up of the City of Montreal and a large number of smaller municipalities scattered all over the island. For better or for worse, Montreal has adopted the Mega City concept and is now comprised of a single entity. You will still hear plenty of references to areas by their original names such as Beaconsfield, St. Laurent, Anjou which will no doubt linger for generations in order to confuse the issue further. Finally, they are still bandying the idea about of restoring the original municipalities - this otta be good!

Update - parts of the city have demerged so when they get their websites going we'll list them again. Who knows maybe things have stabilized now.
