We rented bikes in Old Montreal and cycled down the canal to Atwater Market for lunch a few times, and stocked up on fresh fruits and veggies. Great scenic ride with a reward at the end.

Great place to hang out in the summer. Walk, cycle, skate . . . whatever. Long distances possible. Be sure to see the sculpture park at the Lachine end of the canal.

The Lachine Canal has much to offer. There is a bike path, and there are places to have picnics along the way. At the end of the Canal there is a farmer's market which offers up fresh fruits and vegetables which are usually from Quebec.

You can rent bikes or roller blades, and ride along the canal from Dorval all the way to Old Montreal! It's a beautiful way to spend the day. Pack your picnics and stop along the way to eat and drink!

We rented a little electric boat which is fun, but very slow. Next time I'd go for a kayak. This is a nice spot to bike as well.

Nice for biking on a nice sunny afternoon. Grab some apples at Atwater Market before you go. End the perfect day with a movie at the AMC Cinema up the hill on Atwater Street. If you are feisty, you can take the Lachine Canal all...More

Nice area, great restaurants along the Canal. Great cycling path in the area, it goes from Dorval to all the way to downtown Montreal, along the water.

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
