When we drove in from Quebec City, we drove by Parc Jean Drapeau. The green space consisting of two separate islands was the major focal point of Expo 67. The iconic glass ball is recognizable by many.
The historic downtown is close to the Old Port and waterfront area, teeming with cute shops and quaint restaurants. We had lunch at Creperie Chez Suzette.
We stayed on the northern edge of downtown on Rue Sherbrooke near Magill Univeristy and the Musee des Beaux Arts.
