Nice and huge shopping street with several malls. Very nice stores and full of cheap souvenirs too. Only negative point is the constant smell of weed in the street

Seems to have recovered nicely from Covid, lots of people around, shopping especially, but also headed to work or to eat. Lots of stores here, a big arts center, a big movie complex, lots of entertainment. The heart of commercial downtown.

Many things to see and do in the downtown core. May shops to pop into, restaurants, bakeries, chains and local cuisine. Def. recommended for a visit when you stay in Montreal!

Great shopping during the day.

Turns mildly seedy after dark.

The smell of weed everywhere is incredible! Kind of puts me off but oh well.

Rue Sainte-Catherine is the main arterial Road in Downtown Montréal and crosses through the heart of the city from North East to South West. The street in the downtown area is a popular shopping district, there are significant landmarks including the Eaton Centre shopping mall, Phillips Square and in the pedestrianised section is Place des Arts. Rue Sainte-Catherine is somewhere we always like visiting, on our most recent visit we enjoyed our visit to a festival held near Place des Arts.

I ended up walking the whole of this street by accident as I got lost. But it has so much to offer. It has the upscale shopping then it is a walking only are in the Arts district. Then it goes through the old village. Each area distinct in its own right. I feel like getting lost and wandering the street ended up being a treasure and made for a great afternoon.

Very interesting and fun to find a downtown shopping street that thrives in the era of internet shopping. Very lively, lots of people around all of the time. And besides the shopping, there are churches, food, movies, it's downtown!

Saint-Catherine’s Street is a very long street that weaves through several different neighbourhoods in Montreal. There is a lot going on here, lots of restaurants, pubs and shopping. I actually ended up seeing Emmanuel Arceneaux of the Elks walking down the street the night before the game. In hindsight, I should have stopped to say hi and get a selfie with him. I ended up walking along Saint-Catherine’s Street several times during my week-long stay.

It was a nice walk around. Lots of food places, but not many shops that we came across. Lively and loved the pedestrian walkway.
