Montreal Accommodations

Montreal Travel Guide
Montreal is both the second largest city in Canada, as well as the second largest French speaking city in the world. It is located in the Southwest area of Quebec, and is the largest city in this province. It is nestled between two rivers on the North and the South ends of the city, the St. Lawrence and the Rivière des Prairies.

Drastic temperature changes occur in Montreal, with summer bringing hot humid temperatures averaging around 25 degrees Celsius. Winter on the other hand brings heavy snow and ice with temperatures around -4 degrees on average. Spring and fall lay somewhere in between, but are also known for extreme temperature changes. Summer is known to exceed well into the autumn months some years.

National Hockey League (September): The National Hockey League's rough and tumble world packs a motherlode of milestones, from 1917's NHL opener, to when Maurice Richard was first to score 50 goals in one season in 1944-45, to when Clint Benedict was the first goalie to put on a mask after a shot knocked him unconscious, to when Manon Rheaume made headlines in 1992 as the first woman playing in one of the four major sports leagues, goaltending for the Tampa Bay Lightning against the St. Louis Blues. From October on, it's non-stop action in the world of hat tricks -- three goals in a game by a player -- and sudden death overtime.

Activities for Kids

Montreal Planetarium: What is a Planetarium? The main feature at any planetarium are the astronomical shows presented in the "Star-theatre," so special attention has to be paid to the theatre's design. At the Montréal Planetarium, our Star-Theatre seats 385 people in a series of concentric circles. Above the theatre there sits a hemispherical dome, 20 metres in diameter. In all, 1309 thin aluminum plaques, each containing 2500 tiny perforations, cover the inside of the dome's tubular support structure. The perforations reduce weight and undesirable echos, by allowing sound to pass right through the dome. This means loudspeakers and even lighting effects can be placed behind the dome out of public view.

The Botanical Garden: This magnificent garden includes Chinese, Japanese and First Nations gardens, greenhouses, a touch garden with braille labels for the blind, alpine garden, arboretum and more. There are day camp activities for different age groups all summer. However, these activities are in French only and are ongoing, requiring registration – there isn't anything specifically for tourist children passing through.

In early spring, butterflies are set free to roam around inside the biggest greenhouse. In autumn, throughout September and October, the Chinese garden is lit with thousands of lanterns and is a very popular evening visit. Winter brings Christmas decor and choral concerts to the greenhouses.

The Biodôme: Four eco-zones -- tropical forest, Laurentian forest, polar world and St. Lawrence marine ecosystem. Essentially, this is an indoor zoo.

Montreal Science Centre: Science displays and IMAX cinema.

Grande bibliothèque (big library): The Grande bibliothèque on Berri has a spacious children's section below street level. There are spring break events and a summer day camp. Any resident of Quebec can join the library for free. Events are all in French, but some books and materials are in English and parts of the website are available in English.
