Dates 2 Aug '10 to 16 Aug '10

Flexible? No, not really

Est. Cost 1,500 - 3,000 CAD (CAD Canada Dollars)

Type Travel Partners Wanted

Name Montreal Immersion and Discovery

I'm spending about 9 or so days in Montreal to really see how French-Canada ticks. I'll explore the sights, the sounds, the smells, and especially the tastes.

Sometime during the dates above, I hope to take a side trip to Ottawa for a couple of days, but am not exactly which days I will do this.

I'm very flexible and looking to benefit from the aggregate brain power of a larger group. I'd like to experience some of the following:
1. Mont Royal
2. Poutine
3. The Old City
4. Nightlife in Le Plateau
5. A trip to the burbs
6. Drumming in the parc

Anyone's welcome to join me.

mtlmike i'm trying to copy and paste a Montreal visit write-up for a friend here for you but it doesn't seem to work. Is there a word count max for this?? I tried putting a chunk at like 290 words and it still didn't work ....

Todd Hey mtlmike. Seems it's too many words. But leave it with me for a moment, we're trying to find a work around and/or fix. Alternatively, send me the text to todd[at]globetrooper[dot]com and I'll add it into the main Trip description. If it's very long though ,we may need to link to it or just include an excerpt. Many thanks.

dreamtravelerjess Things to do in Montreal: St. Josephs Oratory. (You don't have to be religious, it's beautiful.)
Make sure to visit the Biodome. Be sure to check out any new shows at the Place Des Arts, and the Bell Centre. There is also the Planetarium, which I always enjoy and the Olympic Stadium. La Ronde is always a blast. Make sure to eat at the little cafe on Mont Royal, if it's still open. When visiting the Old City be sure to go across the road and across the train tracks, there is a place where you can rent segways, paddle boats, bikes, and there are almost always performers. For night life be sure to check out Crescent Street. To get a feel for Montreal, take the Metro. Its cheaper than a taxi. Hope I helped a little.

Lauren Hey Jess, only just saw your post. La Ronde looks like fun, the Biodome is closed unfortunately but I really want to see a game at the Olympic Stadium. Are the tix really min $200?? Seems quite excessive, but I've never seen a big football match.
