A nice ride
If you visit the old town, the "Vieux Montreal", you'll come to the shore of the St. Lawrence, along the street "Rue de la Commune". I advise you to take this opportunity to explore the docks and its various attractions. If you go in the spring or summer, you could try some adventure sports or take a cruise, and in winter you can use the skating rink by Bonsecours Hall, Commune Street up to the north, or head to the palace of science, going to the south (the palace is more for children, with games and fun experiments). Right now (winter / spring 2012) Cirque du Soleil has just been installed on the banks of the Saint Laurent, in the group's hometown.
