Pont Jaques Cartier bike path - Montreal's 2nd best view of the city is now open for 2011
Go to the Pont Jacques Cartier. Ride the sidewalk to the lookout on the bridge. Enjoy the view. This is the 2nd best view in Montreal. (The Mont Royal Chalet lookout is the best.)
Look down, way down. That's the fresh water of the St-Laurence river.
Once you have your fill of this great view, continue to the other side of the bridge. Explore!
You can also explore Parc Drapeau's various islands. There's a new workout-station park on Ile Ste-Helene. Why can we have one of these in Mont Royal park?
