Have bite to eat and then walk the canal - look at what'd been done to the old factory buildings, imagine life in the 19th when this was a working canal, enjoy tranquility as you head back on foot to the city.

Great place to go have a nice long walk or a bike ride. Green road is easy to find, access and ride along. Multiple sitting areas along the way. I wished there were more trees though. Bike rental and repair shops along the way.

We didn't have a bike, but we started by the old port and walked all the way to the end of the canal, with a fun stop at Atwater Market. It was a fun day. Try to get there in time to see some the...More

Nice little shops with good local food and many many options for coffee, drinks and dinner/lunch. Bike path is awesome but need to be careful with traffic during peak hours

Stopped by here in late March and it was pretty bleak. Looks lovely in spring/summer photos though! Would wait until then to go.

While I'm sure this is an excellent asset for residents of Montréal, I'm not sure I would recommend going out of your way to visit. We rented a couple Bixi bikes and it was all interesting but the views and experience were not anything special.

I have been using the cycling path around the Canal-deLachine for about a year while visiting friends in Verdun. The whole scenery is great - you can walk or just bike close to the water. Especially in the night, the view of the downtown skyline...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
