Montreal boasts a large number of attractions, with endless ideas for Chol HaMo'ed trips, entertaining and educational sites, or in general, to give tourists (or natives!) a great time.

Our family favourites include the Old Port, Beaver Lake, a couple of apple picking places, bowling, etc. You'll find many of them listed below, but you'll find higher energy destinations as well, with rides, boating, and in winter - skating, skiing, sledding, etc.

Montreal's Olympic Tower is 165 meters tall (540 feet), inclined at a 45 degree angle, and curved in shape. It affords a spectacular view of the city and the surrounding area up to about 80 km (50 mi), and similarly it can be seen from far away - e.g. from the 43 km marker in St Jerome on Autoroute 15. There is a ride to the top ("funicular") that manages to stay horizontal, despite the curved path, as it ascends. (KP)
