About us and about Walk Montrealdirections_walk
We know about all the commercialized attractions in this beautiful city, but, this site is about those neighbourhoods that have character and charm and historical meaning.
These walks are throughout the Island of Montreal, which encompases several municipalites, but, all on one beautiful island.
Take a couple of hours and find one of these places and simply walk among the streets, see the people and admire what it is all about...so join us and Walk Montreal !
We both enjoy going on urban walks, discovering neighborhoods that can tell a story. We like to feel a part of them. So the best way that we decided to honour and give respect to these neighbourhoods was to share them with the public. And this is where we are today.
This website is to encourage people to get out and walk. First and foremost, get some exercise. Most of these walks are 2.5 to 3.5 hours in length and they are fun. Secondly, we want you to not just walk anywhere, but, to find these historical neighbourhoods and see the buildings, see the people and maybe stop for a quick snack or coffee. So you benefit and the neighbourhood benefits. It's a win-win situation.
We have also spotlighted Street Art and Alleys.
Even though we have pictures of streets and buildings in the public view. If anyone is interested in a specific photo and would like to know where it was taken, please contact us and we will let you know. And if you wish to have us remove a photo, feel free to contact us and make a request, we are more than happy to oblige.
This web site is a work in progress and we expect to add more walks in the near future.
We are a mobile friendly site, so you can follow along on your mobile phone or tablet as you walk.
So please, look thru our website and see the photos and prepare yourself to Walk Montréal !
