This street has many different areas. It is known as the old demarcation between French and Anglo Montreal. It starts in old Montreal, where it is impossible not to want to loose yourself walking the cobblestoned streets. It continues north, passing venues for the Jazz and Just for Laughs festivals. Once past Sherbrooke, it becomes a living history of immigration and culture in Montreal. In a few short blocks, you can see ethnic restaurants of all sorts, interspersed with cookware shops, hasidic goods stores, ethnic butchers, cheese shops, nightclubs, and local clothing boutiques. As you keep going north, you will pass little Portugal. The street will change again to host a multitude of furniture and art shops, mostly local. You will get tired from walking before this street looses it's charm.
Wonderful for shopping, dining, drinking, dancing...We call it The Main. It's not a coincidence ;)
