Saint Laurent Boulevard, Montreal

3.7
Physically and symbolically dividing the city, Saint Laurent Boulevard is a culture-rich thoroughfare. Not only does this well-renowned street divide the province's largest city into East and West, it also has historically divided the city by language, ethnicity, and class. A melting pot of multiculturalism, this street offers different types of cuisine as well as trendy shops and bars. The street is steeped in history too, with different historical economic and ethnic shifts well represented throughout. The boulevard includes parts of the Jewish community, Chinatown, Little Italy, and Little Portugal neighborhoods, and a red-light district.

  • Prairie River in the North of the Saint Lawrence River in the South is sticking to the island of Montreal, but tourists are familiar with is still part of the old Montreal district. Laurent Street and perpendicular to streets here on the border, has changed the name to the West and the East. Views of old Montreal, downtown direction, Zhonghua gate enters the eye. Chinatown is around.

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.
