Things to do in Montréal
(aside from economics)
From the Montréal Casino to St.
Joseph's Oratory, and everything in between, the
City of Montréal website contains links to neighborhood maps, the top
ten tourist attractions in Montréal, and much other useful information.
The dining in Montréal is
top-notch, as featured in the March 2006 issue of Gourmet Magazine.
Restaurant choices number in the thousands, from quaint bistros to fine
upscale cuisine and even a few worthy brew pubs. Here are several
websites to help in your search:

Question de Goût
Did you know? Montréal is
home to a renowned circus school, training high school and college level
students for careers in top circuses all over the world. Treat
yourself to their entertaining end-of-year performance at the
National Circus School Annual Show.
Perhaps a few past graduates of the circus school will be
Cirque du Soleil, which also happens to be debuting their newest
production while CEF 2007 is in Montréal.
Museums are everywhere in
Montréal: art, history, archaeology, architecture - even insects. You
can choose your favorite or try to see them all with one
Montréal Museum Pass. In addition to providing an opportunity to
purchase a comprehensive pass online, this website includes a list with
links to 30 of Montréal's most popular museums.
We also recommend the
Tourisme Montréal website, the official visitor information source for
Montréal. Although it's somewhat more difficult to navigate than the
City of Montreal site, it offers a wealth of suggestions for restaurants, attractions,
shopping and current events.
We expect the weather to be perfect
during CEF 2007, hence you will enjoy strolling the charming streets of Montréal
to get from one place to another. But if it happens to rain, or if you
are a curious shopper, then we encourage you to explore the vast
underground city that connects many of the downtown Metro stops with
a vast array of shops and restaurants.
