Making84:  I second Notre Dame Basilica. I’m not religious in the least, and still found it to be movingly beautiful. Great place for photos if you have a good camera with a tripod.

I am from the US living in Montreal for the summer. Montreal is wonderful! You will have a great time. Here are some suggestions of things to do:

  • An area that often gets overlooked by tourists is the Plateau. It is my favorite Montreal neighborhood! Lots of cute restaurants, bars and beautiful tree lined streets. Take a take a walk around Parc de la Fontaine, L’avenue Duluth, St. Denis, & Avenue du Mont-Royal, as well as some of the side streets to get a feel for the neighborhood. Parc de la Fontaine is a great place to picnic. 
  • Don’t forget to eat some Poutine! You will find it everywhere, but I like Patati Patata on Blvd St. Laurent. They have great burgers as well.
  • Mont Royal Parc is a great place to go on the weekend. Bring a blanket, wine, picnic stuff. Or hike up to the Chateau at the top of the park for great views of the city.
  • Montreal always have some festival going on, and usually there are elements of the festival that are free. Check out local festivals.
  • Montreal has a great bike program called Bixi. The stations are everywhere. This is a great way to cover lots of ground and explore the city. 

Enjoy your honeymoon!

EAT.  Gah, the food is to die for.  Toque, Brasserie T, Olive & Gourmando, L’Express, Laloux, Robin des Bois, Nu Art Cafe, Joe Beef, Croissanterie Figaro, Juliette et Chocolat – there’s a restaurant for every price range.  

If you need to walk off the calories, there’s St. Joseph’s oratory, Chinatown, the fine art museum, the Redpath museum, and walking up Mount Royal.  I’ve never been but I hear Bota Bota is a wonderful spa on a boat.   Edit: You can also check what’s playing at Place des Arts.  And eat bagels from St. Viateur or Fairmount bagel.
