I'm driving from Minneapolis to Montreal in December for fun, and outside of attending the Habs/Wild game on the 17th and snowboarding a day or two, I have no plans. Since I'm 21 and driving with a couple friends, we're open to doing pretty much anything in and around Montreal, and anything along the way on highway 401 in Canada (i.e. Toronto).

So, are there any French-Canadians in the pit that can offer some fun ideas?

I've never really been there before, hence this thread...

There's tons of weird French guys who try to speak English but fail, but they can't speak French either, so it's hard to communicate with them.

I'm going to university in montreal (McGill), and although its my first year in the city I can basically say this is what I generalize in my head:
- Crescent street: Bars, some clubs
- St.Laurent : Clubs, Bars
- Bishop: Irish pubs (McKibbins), Huka (Kbar)
- Club 737 --> Just follow the spot light
- St.Catherine: STRIP CLUBS

Honestly if drinking is your thing just walk around crescent, I forget all of the good places from frosh week but good call on the habs game, I went to the leafs-habs game last weekend it was AWESOME

^Hey thanks for the info I appreciate it.

We'll probably try to check out all those areas on different nights since we wanna experience as many things as possible. Is there a good place to go shopping there? There's gonna be a girl with us that wants to do as such, and I might as well take care of Christmas shopping while I'm there.

If you are planning on a stop in Toronto (you said you might in the OP) go to the Eaton Centre for shopping. It's at Dundas square which also has a lot of shopping and stuff going on. You could also check out the CN tower but it's only famous because it's really tall with a glass floor so that may not interest you.

As for Montreal the only thing I can suggest is bars/clubs.

you could check out the hockey hall of fame in Toronto. you could pit-stop in Burlington and say hello to me

In fact, I wouldn't come to Canada until June. Two years ago we had blizzards in May here in Winnipeg.

I agree with this guy.

I'm a French-Canadian but I live in Québec city. My brother lives in Montréal and I visit him often. On drinking nights, we mostly go from bar to bar on Crescent street. The pubs there are awesome. I remember one in particular, I think the name was Dundee or something like that, quiet place to relax, the food is delicious, the waitresses are gorgeous and the beer is great. Highly recommended.

I also suggest you come to Québec City, it's an awesome place if you don't mind driving an extra 3 hours. If you want to do some snowboarding, there are some cool place for that in the area. The "old town" has a ****load of bars and pubs and the women are just mind blowing. Highly recommended, yet again.
