    I'd like an explanation why people would want to go to Montreal to visit? I know most people communicate in English, but most people in Montreal do not. But if that doesn't bother you enough to not visit, what things do you like/dislike about Montreal ?

        In the Province of Quebec most do not speak English. From my experiences most do speak English or some english in Montreal.

        My daughter loves living there as an 3D animator and published comic strip cartoonist.

        Love the fine arts and old architecture plus weird comedy.The english from Ontario have clubs.and the French have partys. Many beautiful sexy women there, love visiting, Personally I would not live there, must be more of a Spanish or Dutch cultured kind of guy.

        Wow, this is an old thread. I only asked, particularly because I'm a resident of Montreal and have been for all my life. I'm bored of it and decided to question (20 months ago) why anyone would want to live here - or visit for that matter. Things have changed since then. French is still used more often than English here, but there are more English speakers nowadays compared to the past. We had a shitty Premier back then...

        Besides the language it's decent here. There is a lot to do here, but I can't help but think there are much more exciting cities than this one despite Montreal being a party city for young people in their 20's and 30's. Most people here are hipsters who enjoy getting drunk pretty much every night. We're friendly usually, too.

        But anyways, if you have more perspective on the city it would be appreciated to hear!

      Man, was that ever a long time ago... I think the Expos haven't been around for about 10-12 years now I think.

    I like the old-timey/historical feel of a lot of the buildings which can be hard to find in other major Canadian cities.

    Lots of really cool little cafés and bistros, nice restaurants, a foreign feel in an unforeign country (assuming you're from Canada/US).

    If you're sticking within the city most people do speak at least a bit of English in my experience.

      Oh yeah, the food and the cafes and bistros are great. But Montreal sure does get a lot of tourism, it's crazy ! Yeah, but I find most don't. Although I do notice places with a lot of Anglophones.
