There are many ways to get to the Saint-Laurent Boulevard, as you can see on the Visitor Information page. However, if you are planning to visit Montreal’s Main, we strongly recommend travelling by foot. It is the only sure way to soak up the surrounding history and the cultural heritage while on your stroll.
If you are coming by car, park it strategically: at a “Parcojour” (a zone where you pay 8$ for a whole day) or a private parking lot will allow you to take the time you need for shopping, lunch or sightseeing.
One thing is certain, you will need time on your side. As if the Saint-Laurent Boulevard didn’t have enough to offer you, it is also the ideal canal connecting you to other appealing streets such as Duluth and Prince Arthur.
In fact, you could very well take a different route each time you come explore the Boulevard. And that is precisely what we suggest you to do, even if you already have your favorite destinations in mind.
We actually have a section called “The Main Bucket List” on our website. We strongly recommend you to go take a look if you need a bit of inspiration for your next visit. Many Quebec bloggers and well-known figures from the artistic field often share their favorite spots on the Main. We hope that it’ll lead to some delightful discoveries.
But don’t take it from us alone: Les Amis du boulevard Saint-Laurent offer a 10 part audio-guided tour of the Main with the aim of highlighting the Saint-Laurent Boulevard and all its hidden facets.
