AOL Travel Editor’s Review

In the fast-flowing St. Lawrence River east of the Old Port, Parc Jean-Drapeau is the city’s year-round playground. Set on the islands of Sainte-Hélène and Notre-Dame, the park started life as the site of Expo 67—the World’s Fair that brought so much attention to the city. Still the site of big, showy events—the Canadian Grand Prix and huge outdoor concerts happen here—a wealth of other distractions also lure locals across the water. With an aquatic park, a sandy river beachfront, the Montréal Casino, La Ronde Amusement Park, and summer weekend festivals, you could spend your whole vacation on the 662-acre islands.
