My wife and I will be in Montreal this weekend (July 4-5-6) and we are trying to avoid the areas we have been to in the past (i.e. Old Montreal and the downtown). We will arrive late Friday night and go straight to hotel near airport. Then on Sat. we have an 8 am appointment and then we are free for the day. Planning to head to Jean Talon Market. And the day will essentially end at Joe Beef for a 6:30 reservation.
So, is there enough around Jean Talon to keep us busy and amused all day? Also considering Notre Dame to check out the antique shops and it is near Joe Beef.
We don't need any food recos (Have lots if we get hungry!) But what other interesting areas are there to check out? I know that is pretty vague. (No museums, churches, tours) + we have a car.
