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...)
Mount Royal
Botanical Garden

Dude... No offense to Montreal. Its a lovely place... but we felt bored in comparison to the beautiful Chicago.

We missed the Jet boat rides which wud probably have added additional spice to our trip... Nevertheless, we had fun!

and thanks for the web resource on Montreal.
