    A pedestrian street lined with bars, restaurants, a few shops. Very busy street, decorated. It is nice walk there.

    The gay village offers tons of terraces, coffee and restaurant for all tastes. Prices are relatively the same from one restaurant to another. Take the time to come in the summer, it's always more cheerful in this neighborhood. On the other hand, there is a lot of prostitution and homeless. Summer Street is blocked to traffic and made sure to take full advantage of a good market.

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
