What To Do In Montreal: Visit St. Denis
Street Art. That is what this is called. Lining the streets of Montreal are various works of art by both local and travelling graffiti specialists. In certain areas of Montreal, there are designated walls specifically for the artists and seeing it live is likely to stop you dead in your tracks! Take a tour around the St. Denis area for some of the best of the best. This area is easily accessible, nestled safely in the lower plateau, just a cobble-stone’s throw away from the centre of downtown Montreal.
This beautiful area offers TONS of bars, restaurants, cafes and of course, it wouldn’t be Montreal without the shopping! You can check out some little furniture shops, then stop for a drink at any one of the great bars, although we would personally suggest St. Sulpice. There’s also plenty of little Montreal-style boutiques where you can find lots of unique clothing and accessories that are hard to find anywhere else.
You can finish off your St Denis stroll a stop at what is officially dubbed one of the nicest parks on the island, Parc La Fountain. With it’s huge fountain and cobblestone trails it’s the perfect combination of a bountiful oasis in an urban setting. Just off the Parc, is the cobblestone Prince Arthur walkway, not as busy as it used to be due to the failing economy, but still worth visiting. There are some fantastic little restaurants around the area, which is adjacent to boulevard St. Laurent and many high end supper clubs.
