What to See

Shopping
MONTREAL

La Baie, 585 rue Ste-Catherine Ouest
French for “The Bay,” this is one of Montréal’s two locations for the Canadian landmark Hudson Bay Company.  While checking out Canada’s answer to Macy’s, stop by the Canadiana Boutique which offers a variety of wool merchandise and souveniers.

Underground City, throughout downtown, with easy access from the Green and Orange metro lines.
Even on a perfect summer day, a visit to the Underground City is worth the trip.  This mix of shopping malls, hotels, offices and universities includes 60 different complexes joined by 20 miles of tunnels.  Look for the RÉSO signs pointing downward.

QUEBEC

Rue du Trésor

It began in the 1960s when two local artists decided to hang up their work on the street and sell directly to the public.  The idea caught on, and now this narrow alley between the Holy Trinity Anglican Cathedral and the Notre-Dame Basilica is filled with artists each morning.  The impromptu gallery attracts tourists searching for that perfect souvenir as well as art collectors looking for new works.

Rue St-Louis

Beginning at the Place d'Armes and continuing all the way to the city gates, this walk is truly a journey through time.  The street hosts a variety of galleries, shops, and cafés; the buildings being the oldest in the city.  Some even date back to the late 1600s.

Le Rendez-vous du Collectionneur, 301 rue St-Paul, Antiques District

This shop is a wonderful place to go treasure hunting for knickknacks.  Amongst it's cluttered shelves you'll find old postcards of Québec from the 1920s and other pieces like signs, lights and houseware.
