Do you love to shop? If so, then Montreal is going to be paradise! Saint Catherine Street should be your first stop in the downtown Montreal area, which is the epicenter of all that is fashionable and in-style. Edgier styles and fashions can be found on Saint-Laurent Boulevard which has more unique and risky wardrobes which some fashionistas fancy. Those not wishing to visit the wilder side of clothing are encouraged to shop along Sherbrooke Street, where traditional attire can be found. Shopping tends to be dependent upon the weather, but in Montreal if the temperature's not right, be sure to visit the "Underground City" which also has its fine share of elegant shops, without the nuisance of weather.
