[A.J. Kinik and Michelle Marek write the wonderful blog, "...an endless banquet"--covering Montreal and its cuisine in an entirely personal and wonderfully insightful way. They'll be guestblogging here this week.]
Welcome to Montreal! Bienvenue a Montreal!
Happy belated St-Jean!* And happy belated Canada Day!**
In conjunction with the release of the July/August issue of Arthur Frommer's Budget Travel, which includes our somewhat irreverent roundup of the culinary, commercial, and ludic landscape/s of Montreal, and to kick-off our week of guest-blogging at Budget Travel Online, our cartographic division here at "...an endless banquet" took it upon itself to create a series of ultra-high-tech maps in order to assist you in your journey/s (both virtual and real) across our fair city. Consult these maps online or download them onto your very own personal computer and you'll find virtually every single one of the suggestions contained within our exhaustive "My Montreal is Better Than Yours" field report, plus a few bonus suggestions. They're relatively accurate, and, better yet, they're free, absolutely free.
So, without any further ado:
one large-scale A.E.B. map of central Montreal:
the A.E.B. Map of the Main, the Lower Main, and the Plateau:
and our A.E.B. Map of Mile End, Little Italy, Villeray, and Parc Ex (and Outremont, too):
Thanks for reading,
Anthony & Michelle
*"La St-Jean" is June 24, St. John the Baptist's saint day. It's also the fete nationale of Quebec.
**Canada Day, July 1, is, of course, our national holiday.
