Head to the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Walter Klinkhoff Gallery and the St. Dizier Gallery, to get your fix of art.
Get your body moving in the great outdoors while you are in the area. Relax and enjoy the fresh air. Admire the trees and flowers, take a few photos, or just listen to the birdsong at Lafontaine Park, Jeanne-Mance Park and Sun-Yat-Sen Park.
While you are here, stop at some of the local sights such as Habitat 67, the Champ de Mars and Victoria Square. These are a magnet for locals and tourists alike.

If you're a sports fan, don’t miss the opportunity to see local favorites, the Montreal Alouettes, doing battle in nearby Percival Molson Memorial Stadium. On game days the stadium is filled with red, blue, silver and white, as crowds come together to get behind their home-grown heroes.
At the end of a busy day enjoying Lachine Canal National Historic Site, get a good nights sleep in one of the area’s popular bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments.
