Underwhelmed by Montreal - any suggestions?

Jump to last reply

My first time - just got home.

Despite attending the JFL fest this past wkd, I came away from Montreal thinking "hmmm". I was only there 48 hours and did not do a lick of reading or research ahead of time. I only knew of the reputation, which is that it's the "most European" of NA cities, etc.

The fest was a lot of fun - I went in support of a comedian friend and met/watched on stage and had drinks with some interesting comedians. I'd gladly go back again for the festival.

But overall Montreal didn't impress me that much. Lots of high rises and it reminded me more of Pittsburgh than Paris - even though I did walk the old quarter with my friend. I noticed a number of people dressed rather punk/goth, which is a departure from DC where I live. I also noticed way more derelicts/drunks walking around, especially in the evenings, than I've seen in DC or NYC or overseas.

Any suggestions for any repeat visit, should I make one? Other than crack a book, I mean... What is your favorite part of Montreal?

Thanks!
