So much going on at the old port. All kinds of activities for all ages. Biking, ziplining, boating, science centres etc. Bike rentals and roller blades available. Nice picnic areas and touristy kind of shopping. There's something for everyone at the old port.

The Old Port was interesting. There were no fireworks when we were there, so that might make it a little more fun to visist.

Admission to the skating rink was a bit high at $6.95 plus tax but we were on vacation and wanted to try it. It was certainly worth it to try once but I can't say I'd do it regularly if I was a local as there are other free options. There is a smaller man-made rink that is maintained by... More

One of the most memorable NYE in a very long time. From the fireworks over the Old Port, the music playing in the streets, the beer gardens, it was wonderful. But most of the people of Montreal are warm and friendly!

Old Port was the most beautiful part of Montreal; it felt just like Europe. There are a bunch of awesome activities and restaurants in this part of town, including Gibby's Steakhouse, Notre-Dame Basilica, and the Montreal Museum of Archaeology and History. It was wonderful to walk around and pop in and out of shops. I would recommend spending an entire... More

Plenty of things to see and do. In the summer you can just sit on a bench by the water and take everything in. Great restaurants and pastry shops close by.

Old Port is a great place to walk around and do activities with/out children. You can rent a bike, walk around the water, there is a man made beach, Labyrithe, rope climbing maze, lots of places to eat, the Science center, sight seeing tours and brunch or dinner cruises. You can see Cirque du Soleil under the big tent, or... More

A good place to visit during the winter time with a lot of activities. Many restaurants and there are many fireplaces to warm up.There are an Igloo festival beside the port and it is very interesting to take the ticket and visit there.

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighbourhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighbourhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) make up an invigorated area dedicated to "Space for Life." Around the Olympic Village's arenas and stadiums, Rue Sherbrooke welcomes exploration of its sculpture gardens decorated in the works of Jean-Paul Riopelle and its museum culture headed by the historical Château Dufresne. Maisonneuve Park offers interactive experiences at its bio-dome, insectarium, planetarium, and botanical gardens. For a change of scene, the gentrified space along Rue Ontario Est is packed with the city's newest, edgiest cafes, where an imaginative, youthful crowd sips foamy cappuccinos. A visit here is incomplete without stepping into the vast halls of the Maisonneuve Market, with flower stalls, wine depots, and local produce.
