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.

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.
