Montreal Jazz Festival Jul 28, 2013
Absolutely don't miss the Montreal Jazz Festival if you are there in the summer ... time your trip to be there for it if you can... its marvellous and happens around end-June early-July... there are some paid shows but most of it is free... just saunter around the huge area enclosed for it and stay on at whatever event catches your fancy... there is great variety and several gigs happen simultaneously every day for several days... and there is the related festivity around it... food stalls, souvenirs, music buys, and loads of festive people... the whole city turns festive in fact... watch out for pickpockets though who turn active too... it is a great jazz event internationally ... but Montreal has more too ... don't miss the lovely botanical garden there and the wooded area in the city for a nice stroll ...

We traveled to Montreal last week for a 5 day stay - the weather was good to us in that it didnt rain but you still needed a sweater & jacket!

To be honest bar meeting up with a friend l met on another travel forum l was a bit disappointed - maybe it was because the trees hadnt yet started to bud or get their leaves back but l thought there was little to do.

The food was ok - nothing out of this world, shopping was bland and whilst there were some amazing buildings, Notre Damm Catherdal, and a visit to Parc Olympic and its biodome not much else (that we found!)

Maybe we missed out on something???????? The metro system however is EXCELLENT! And it did not feel for a second that we were in North America which was refreshing - French is the first language spoken which l was aware of before we arrived but l dont think l realised that it was the FIRST language!

Still it was another city that we have visited - we did have a nice time and l experienced the BEST customer service ever in a restaurant called the Keg for that alone Montreal was good!

i find this a very strange review for the following reasons:
sweater and jacket needed in may? its 85degrees out!
little to do in montreal? you obviously didnt plan your trip at all seeing as how everytime i meet a tourist they tell me they cant pack enough intotheir small trip.
you didnt pick good restaurants, cause we have some amazing food locations.
i think you missed out on a lot, as you said.
