    Hey there!
    I'm new here, so don't know how well this is going to go down.....

    I'm coming over the Montreal for a few days in the summer and wanted to know if anyone out there knew of any nice places to go around there by car, to get out into the countryside/mountains for a couple of days?

    Anywhere anyone could recommend? With nice views etc etc. Any nice hotels (not too expensive!).

    Would be very interested if anyone could give me some info!

    Cheers.
    JM :)

    Hello JenMet77 and welcome to TSG!

    Well, I'm from Montreal but haven't lived there for some time. I won't be any good at recommending any hotels but there's a few things you must see:

    1) Old Montreal(Vieux Montreal) - This cobblestoned area is beautiful, with ancient stone buildings, sidewalk artisans and excellent pubs and restaurants.

    2)Mount Royal - Don't just look at it; go up onto it and enjoy the wonderful park. You can also look out over the city.

    3) To get out of town and see the countryside I recommend the Laurentians. This a a hilly region north of the city. It is fed by a modern highway(Autoroute) but the rest of it is strictly country only an hour from Montreal.

    Montreal has an extensive subway("Metro") system and is excellent for getting around the city quickly. There is also an "underground city" of hotels and all kinds of shops directly connected to the subway stations. See the Metro here: http://www.stcum.qc.ca/English/metro/a-mapmet.htm

    Here is a site outlining Montreal culture. Make sure to click the "Popular Attractions" link:http://www.montrealinternational.com/en/vivre/culture.aspx#[/url]

    I hope this is of some help.

    That's illegal in Quebec; the sign must be French. The sign should read "Chez Jim".

    Odd, when I was in Ottawa, I found more people refusing to speak english than when I was in Gattineau.
