Default OT: Montreal

Driving up to Vermont next week and want to do a daytrip to Montreal. Anyone ever been? Going with the wife, so obviously looking to hit the shopping areas and hopefully find a nice restaurant to dine in.

Anyone have any recommendations/advice they can share?

Thanks.

I've been to Montreal, but it was many years ago. I just remember the cleanest subway I've ever seen and really good food, particularly the soups.

Be sure you have supplemental car insurance for Canada. I once got turned back at the Vermont/Canada border because my insurance was no good for Canada.

Make sure you say the following four words a lot: Hoser, bacon, hockey, eh? If you mix those into all your sentences you'll blend right in. And remember to make your "O" words really long. Sorry should be sowery. About, aboot. etc.

Cool city and gorgeous women. But it has French Canadians in it and they hate everyone.

I figured the content in the link would be best... Montreal stuff
My recommendations are...
For ribs - Baton Rouge
For Montreal smoked meat sammys - Schwartz's or Reuben's
Pubs - Ye Olde Orchard
In house brews - Les 3 Brasseurs

You'll have a blast and if you stick around a few more days you'll enjoy one of North America's largest comedy festivals - Just for laughs.

Isn't Montreal more of a bro vacation rather than a family vacation?

Loved Montreal last 2 years when living in saratoga ny. We'd prefer a trip there over NYC.

Not to hijack the thread but was thinking about going up North as well. Is Bar Harbour, Maine too touristy? Any other suggestions in the Upper NE?

Montreal's about the only place in Canada you don't talk like that. Just use "tabernac!" for a hilarious curse. And just throw out the letter h, they don't use it.

Definitely have some Montreal smoked beef and some poutine.

^ Best strip clubs (even better than Spearmint Rhino in LV) and casinos

But I guess if you're doing a wife trip there is a lot of shopping and beautiful architecture.

Heads up. If you (and your wife) have a passport, you might want to bring it. They can be dinks at the border, especially going in to Quebec. Go to Old Montreal, especially if it is in the daytime. Go to a steak restaurant, you would be surprised at how French Canadians can cook a mean steak, that is if you are a red meat kind of guy.

If you are in Vermont, hit Burlington, it is a fun city, with great pubs, ( I would put some of the locally brewed beers, Long Trail, Otter Creek, Magic Hat etc. up against any) and food. Or travel 20-30 miles south or east, all kinds of things to check out. Have fun, you would be surprised at how many Broncos fans live in Vermont. Okay, that's a lie, there's about 6 of us...

You have to have your passport (or a passport card).

I think it's been that way since June of 2009.

Technically, you don't need one to get into Canada, but you need one to get back into the United States....and this usually means they won't allow you into Canada without a passport, as they know you won't be able to get back across the border to go home without one.
