We stop at the Bell Centre and notice there is a hockey game on tonight, Montreal Canadiens vs New Jersey Devils. We get tickets for the game and that is the plan for the evening. Instead of going to ticket counter to buy tickets, we buy from a scalper outside for what we believe is a deal at the time. But ended up being a bit of a rip off, all well.
Then it was onto Old Town Montreal, and walk around Old Town. A very historical part of the city, many many old buildings and its very clean.
We then head off to and go up climbing Mt Royal of Montreal, this is where to get a great view of the city. Its an amazing climb and a great trail system there is. Up at the view point you can see all of Montreal as far the eye can take you.
Its an amazing view of the city and was well worth the trek up hill for. To Describe Mt Royal :
The mountain consists of three peaks: Colline de la Croix (or Mont Royal proper) at 233 m (764 ft), Colline d'Outremont (or Mount Murray, in the borough of Outremont ) at 211 m (692 ft), and Westmount mount at 201 m (659 ft) elevation above mean sea level.
Afterwards we head down the hill and back into Downtown Montreal, its time for lunch. We find this nice pub on St. Bishops St called Mckibbins Pub, an Irish Pub. Its a nice pub and the waitresses are really hot. The food is amazing, have Buffalo burgers and Guinness, a perfect meal.
A good way to get ready for game tonight.
Back to Hotel for a siesta before game tonight.
It is evening now and almost time for 730pm game. Take our tickets to the Bell Centre. Its an amazing stadium, lots of people and the energy is high. Montreal is the top hockey town and they love the HABS!!
The game starts and its amazing, the beginning is amazing and game is exciting. Lots of action.
I have lots of photos of the game.
After game we go to the pubs called the 3 Tenors for pizza and beer. Not the best place, its loud and crowded. Food was ok and beer was ok nothing special.
That is the night off for tomorrow.
