Boring Montreal

Itinerary:
Dates: Sep 19 - Sep 22
Hotel: Sheraton Laval and Delta Montreal
Flight: American Airlines
Airport: Montreal, Canada (YUL)

We found the city mostly boring... esp compared to prime US cities like Chicago. We liked the Notre-dame basil where the intricate craftsmanship of the sculptures is worth appreciation. The visit to Biodome gave us a new experience of fauna... and we loved the cuppy cakes in Vieux Montreal.

We visited...
Carrefour Mall at Laval
Montreal BioDome
Olympic Stadium Observatory
Biosphere
Casino de Montreal
Notre-Dame Basilica
Stroll along Saint-Laurent & Cartier
Underground City shopping

Just Missed... Hope to see on my next visit (Or may be not...)

Preets and I loved the fallsview room at the Marriott. The changing colors of the falls after sunset was spectacular... and the view from Canadian side was just phenomenal. We loved the Maid-of-the-Mist ride, and had fun taking photos...
