Downtown Shopping Walk (Self Guided), Montreal

Have you had your fill of galleries and museums? Then it’s time to get down to some serious shopping and there’s no better place for this than Montreal’s downtown area. With hundreds of stores to browse through, you will be sure to find your heart’s desire.

Rue Sainte Catherine and rue Crescent are rich warrens of shopping malls with everything from top designer stores to fashion shops, from hat and shawl shops to kids’ clothing stores. You’ll find jewelry shops, fine men’s accessories stores and, of course souvenir shops. Another great shopping area in downtown Montreal (especially in the winter) is the Underground City with its 200 entrance points. Actually, it isn’t completely underground; it’s more a system of tunnels that connect a large number of buildings and really is a worth visiting because it boasts over 1500 stores. You can shop here without having to brave the sometimes extreme weather conditions outside.

The city is on several levels and also has bars, restaurants and plazas. Do visit rue Sherbrooke, a major street chock-a-block with department stores, music and video games shops and much, much more. Several side streets running off rue Sherbrooke have interesting stores, including head shops, shops selling leather items and gift stores.
