Three nights in Montreal?

Jump to last reply

Hi - thinking about a June getaway to Montreal. I know there's lots I could find by searching this forum, which I will do in addition to this post. But by being specific about my tastes and expectations I'm hoping I might get more consise and targetted information to work with.

Am not unfamiliar with Montreal, but typically only short stays of 1 or 2 nights so have never had time for in-depth exploration. Have several times wandered the Old Montreal area and a couple of years ago visited the Museum of Fine Arts. Several years before visited Biodome. So, what else might we do?

We're a "mature" couple, in pretty good shape, like music (blues & jazz) but not really late nights or large noisy crowds. Like interesting food which is also good value and particularly cozy bistro atmosphere. Interesting shopping areas (i.e. other than the main downtown district). A daytrip? Like nature and gardens. Did spend a little time in Magog a couple of years ago but have not seen the Mont Tremblant area (perhaps too developed and commercial?).

Thanks for your thoughts!
