Eastern Canada Road Trip | Old Port of Montreal

The Old Port of Montreal can also be said to be part of the Old City of Montreal. However, the old port area of Montreal is more targeted at the port area. The historic Old Port offers a variety of activities for Montrealer's and visitors, including the Montreal Science Center, the IMAX Theater, and the Montreal Clock Tower, as well as the River Walk, rental bicycles, rollerblades, quads, pedals, and scooters. On the banks of the St. Lawrence River, there is the old Montreal Ferris wheel. It is also located at the eastern end of the Lachine Canal, which has also become a popular destination for bicycles, rollerblades and cruises. Cultural events include the Festival Montréal en lumière, the Igloofest and the Matsuri Japon festival.

In June 2012, next to the Montreal Bell Tower, an urban beach, called Plage de l'Horloge, opened. But when I went in June 2012, it didn't seem to be open yet, otherwise I didn't notice there. But the clock tower is so obvious that I still see it!

Old Port is also known as one of the most famous fishing spots in the Greater Montreal area. A popular spot for shore fishing is the Parc de la Cité-du-Havre, where there are many species of fish. In winter, ice fishing takes place on the ice of the Old Port.

The Grande roue de Montréal opened in the Old Port in 2017 to commemorate the 375th anniversary of the city of Montreal. It is the tallest Ferris wheel in Canada. This Ferris wheel didn't exist in 2012~ Later, when I looked at the pictures on Google Maps, I felt that it did not match the impression. I want to say that there is no such Ferris wheel in my memory. Why did it suddenly pop out!

Seeing yachts moored in the harbor is a real envy. After thinking about it, I don't like water. What to envy, Haha!

Does the dining car have a fixed sign? ? Foreign dining cars are really popular, and each dining car has a different style. Some businesses are not lost to restaurants!

What was then the Old Port of Montreal has been turned into an entertainment district. There are museums, shops, restaurants, cafes, riverside parks, shopping malls and cinemas. The neighborhood is also great for walking, with spacious walkways. Instead, it has become a bustling area. It is not far from the old city, and churches and Chinatown are also within walking distance. And there is a fusion of European and American style here. Much richer and more interesting than anywhere else in Montreal.
