And then, here are
the most popular areas of Montreal -
starting with the trendy Plateau;
going to the nightlife Quartier Latin / Latin Quarter;
to downtown - the area around Mountain and Crescent;
to the Monkland Village, voted in one survey
the friendliest and trendiest area of Montreal;
to the wonderful but largely undiscovered Lachine Canal area,
including LaSalle with its wonderful St Joseph boulevard;
And then of course there is Old Montreal.
A final vital piece of Montreal tourist information -
especially for many Americans,
is the safety level.
Montreal has an excellent safety level -
unbelievable to many American visitors.
One can walk anywhere (except maybe the darkest alleys),
at just about any time.
Yes, the situation is not perfect -
Montreal is not completely safe.
But the safety level is incredibly high,
especially when compared to most American cities.
There are no areas to stay out of.
There are richer and poorer neighborhoods -
but there is also such a mix in many neighborhoods,
especially as area after area is being revitalized.
So for those looking for safety,
Montreal is extremely attractive.
