  The Chatter Box : Travel
Montreal by cameragrrrl on 8 November 2004 8:21pm
While my CA roadtrip simmers on the backbunner, I am planning a cheaper, shorter, and more immediate trip to Canada. Scoping out the expatriate possiblilties :-P

Basically, I'm looking at a weekend in Montreal. Any advice on what to do/see/eat etc?

My key words are "cheap" and "wonderful", I may have access to a car, and don't speak French (except to ask if one speaks English, and where the toilets are)

You've probably gone by now, but I know for a fact that most of the people in Montreal speak English as well. If they find out you're American they switch immediatly, and all the people I met were very friendly about it. The only piece of advice I would give you would be to greet everybody with "Bonjour". They find it rude if you say "Hello."

I love Montreal. Best restaurant is actually a Polish one called Stashs in Old Montreal. There is also Ben's Deli.

I took French in high school. I have no problem at all and Casey is right. They all speak English.
