Montreal is like NY City so I don't think one can avoid crowds altogether. We were there during a music festival so there were a lot of people. The streets hardly had anyone until after 9AM and restaurants were not crowded until earlier evening.

When a girl offers you a lapdance in a club be careful cause that might be a full trap. Girl tells you that it is only $20. She takes you to the room and gets $20 cash. Everything looks fine so far. Then she stays as long as 5 or 6 or even 10 songs with you and you thinks she is staying long cause she likes it and you are happy that you are getting a nice long lap dance with $20. But when you get out of the private lap dance room the bouncer tells you that you owe another $100 or maybe even $180 cause it were $20 per song and you stayed there for 10 songs or so. This is a real trap for robbing travellers. Be careful and avoid being trapped

There is a wonderful restaurant "Finnegan & Bacchus Bar" on the corner a few steps from the hotel, the food is excellent and the cost was great for the service and experience. Salad, entrée, dessert and coffee or tea for two with gratuity $55.00. We ate there for dinner twice and breakfast twice. Excellent! Tell Nick we said hello from Ohio!

If you have a place in mind then walking directly to it is fine. If not there were multiple streets closed off for markets and night life activities. Follow your eyes ears and nose. Get lost for a few.

First you find all kind of shopping malls within a close perimeter especially when you are staying at the Faimount Queen Elisabeth and even if the weather 's bad you don't have to go out and can reach The Ville Marie shopping mall or the other shopping centers of the Rue St Catherine quite easily . And when you come from France it's a pleasure to shop at Tommy Hilfiger or Roots , brands you hardly find in Europe .

Was it cheap, fast, or easy to use? What made it so simple to get around in Montreal?

The subway was very convenient. There are a lot of lines so it's easy to get around the city. There are also a lot of buses that go around (we didn't have to use any). We ended up buying a 2-trip pass on L'occasional card and we saved some money (5.50 vs 6.00). There are a lot of pass options available as well that allow you to travel and transfer as much as you like. E.g. 1 day pass, weekend pass, family pass, 3 day pass etc. The subway system was very speedy, a lot more efficient to the one we're used to using in Toronto. The employees were also generally kind and patient with us so that was a huge plus. The fare was also affordable at $3 for an adult and tickets could be bought at some convenience stores in advance. We didn't take advantage of taxis because of this great system.

It was interesting, for all of the hundreds of people we saw walking around, whether they were alone or with friends, very few of them were looking down at a screen or their phone. Around here (Oregon), most pedestrians are focused on their devices, but in Montreal the people seemed to be engaged and present in their location/present situation. It was nice.

Montreal, and especially the Old Port area, is like a little bit of Europe in North America. Language, attitude, dining opportunities all add up to a unique experience. The Jazz Festival and the Comedy Festival draw headliners from around the world.

We visited Notre-dame Basilica during the day. Some of us went on the free tour offered in English or French. It was a great experience and we'd definitely do it again. You could easily spend the day there taking in the artistry that went into making it.
