this was a cute area to walk around. unfortunately a lot of the shops were closed, maybe because of the season, but there was a tracklike ice skating rink that went around the ferris wheel.

Great to visit walking, lots of shops, restaurants and fun things to do. Any season has its charm. Iconic Montreal. Must see.

Make sure you are dressed for the weather. The lights in the port are so nice. We decided to skate it was great! If you aren't used to skating on a fresh rink rather than a built one it takes some getting used to.

Nothing says Montreal and a little bit of Europe that a trek through the cobble stone streets of old Montreal. Awesome and the igloofest was just wrapping up. Treasure this piece of Canadian gem and keep walking and exploring.

Always good for a wander, but it was off season, so some things were either not open or late opening. Good cafes and shops and views of the river. Some new attractions have been added and there is a good walk along the river.

Old port was a nice walk and neat to see. There were lots of paths to walk and interesting to see the older buildings.

Of course, as it is mid winter, most things are closed. However its a very pretty walk down to the port and over the bridge. Looks like it would be a lot of fun in the summer, with rides, and wheels and pirate ships etc....More

We enjoyed walking around the area, the Christmas decorations added a magical feeling to the place. It was very cold and windy, making the snow ice and slippery. But the overall experience was amazing! I would love to go back again and have some treats,...More

I went with my 5 years old. He did the small ones for children and both the 13 feet tall. It was very fun. He couldn't go on the higher ones but i'm sure a teenager can.
