Flying through Montreal...anything to do for 4 hours?

Jump to last reply

We will be flying through Montreal next May and have a 4 hour layover (3:56pm - 7:50pm). I'm the planner/worrier in the group and tend to say let's sit in the airport in case anything happens. There are several in the group (the free spirited types) that want to get out of the airport and at least eat dinner. I have noticed that there seem to be several picturesque areas just south of the airport on the water that seem like an ideal place to take a taxi and eat lunch. I'll ask more about this in the CANADA forum (considering Point-Claire as an option...5 miles away).

My question for you all is would you leave Montreal's airport if you had a 4 hour layover assuming you were going to take a taxi (vs trying to find bus/train) and were going to stay rather close? We are 2 families with 4 kids ranging in age from 8 to 15.

We will be checking in at Orlando with Air Canada and flying to London on Air Canada so we won't be changing airlines in Montreal. I'm assuming we'll have boarding passes for both legs printed in Orlando. How far ahead of our 7:50pm flight should we be back in the airport. It's been a while since I had a layover like this and don't recall if this 2nd flight would also require us to be there several hours ahead of time...seems like they wouldn't.

Thanks for any advice.
