We are coming to Montreal in July to visit my stepdaughter who has just emigrated there. I've looked at the Forum postings for things to do with kids and think that my son will probably enjoy the science museum and La Ronde.
Couple of questions - between July 15-21, are the Canadian schools on summer vacation and what are the lines likely to be like at La Ronde? Is there a better day to go there (i.e. Friday as opposed to Saturday or Sunday) to avoid the crowds?
Are there any other 'must see' things to do? We have a hire car, although we will have spent a lot of time driving around and would prefer not to go on long-distance drives if we can avoid it. Where can we go that doesn't involve a lot of walking? Planetarium?
We're thinking of checking into Le Square Phillips as it seems pretty central and is a suite hotel with a pool. Is the area safe and near to most tourist attractions?
Thanks so much for any help.
