Montreal

11777-676-468.jpg

I’ve decided to go to Montreal this weekend.  I’ve book a hotel just blocks away from both Old Montreal and The Gay Village.  I am super excited. Now, who has advice for visiting Montreal? I know a few sights I want to see like the basilica and the Museum of Fine Arts. My hotel also has access to the Underground City. I know I want to go to some of the clubs in The Village, so which ones are the best? Any advice will be welcomed. Do I need to get Canadian dollars there or will they take American as well? I know I need to get at least some cash. Also, my French is really terrible. I can basically order food. Is this going to be a problem? I spent three weeks in France once and my limited French was okay. Do most people in Montreal also speak English.  I know these are some dumb questions, but I would love to know as much as I possibly can before I go.

PS Before anyone says it, I have an Enhanced Driver’s License so I don’t have to have a passport.

PSS Please give as much advice as possible.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe

    You will find most people in Montreal speak some to very good English. When I was there a few years back, I was worried. However, when service persons realize you speak only English they will switch over. Unless you are in Quebec City. Montreal being a port city it has a great multicultural atmosphere. You will love the outdoor pubs along the streets. The art galleries tucked away in the old part of the city. Along with cobble stone streets and wonderful architecture. Have a wonderful time.

    As I am originally from Montreal I can say that they do speak English. One of the best bars in the Gay Village is Sky. Their rooftop terrace is the best. Enjoy your visit!
