Montreal Old Port
Stretching for over two kilometres along the St-Lawrence River in Old Montreal, the Old Port Of Montreal has been the social, economic and cultural soul of Montreal ever since early French fur traders used it as a trading post in 1611. It was here that the city and the port came to life more than 350 years ago
The Plateau is characterized by brightly-coloured houses, cafés, book shops, and a laissez-faire attitude. It’s the location of some famous attractions on Saint Laurent Boulevard, including Schwartz’s Deli (famous for its Montreal smoked meat), and a weekend street fair during the summer that sees extremely crowded streets. In 1997, Utne Reader rated it one of the 15 “hippest” neighbourhoods in North America
Montreal Jazz Festival
Ranked as the world’s largest jazz festival by Guinness World Records, the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal has been synonymous with a passion for music for over three decades. Every year, North America’s French-speaking metropolis welcomes global music fans to 10 days of jazzcentric celebration, where fans of all types of jazz-related music rub shoulders with aficionados of the genre in its purest form.
Old Montreal is a major tourist draw itself; with the oldest of its buildings dating to the 1600s, it is one of the oldest urban areas in North America. Historic European architecture and cobbled streets in Old Montreal have been maintained or restored to keep the look of the city in its earliest days as a settlement, and horse-drawn calèches help maintain that image.
