First, a warning to folks not familiar with the area, coming from the East, without GPS: coming in through the Kahnawake reservation, there are not street signs! So study your maps carefully, because I had trouble knowing where to turn without signage.
Once there, the beginning was quite busy, with a full parking lot and lots of families with kids there to take walks, pick apples, etc. Once in the reserve with fees paid (plus tax, as always!), it was busy for the first kilometer or so with people pushing baby strollers (never advisable if you ask me, but at least here the trail at the beginning is wide/flat enough) and with little kids. Once you get past the Grande Digue it got quieter. Near North Point I saw a buck. Walking back on the east side of the island was the nicest and most quiet area. Taking the Petite Digue back, I saw 3 great egrets, many mallards, and a blue heron.

I've played this 9 hole course several times now. It is now in it's 2nd year of operation and it continues to impress. The fairways and greens are in pristine condition. Walking on the fairways is like walking on a deep plush carpet. The greens are very challenging with excellent pin positions and hardly a flat green on the course. There's talk that they will be building a 2nd nine. When done this will be one of the premiere courses in the region. It would also be great if they could build a clubhouse at some point.

With more than 150 locomotives, cars, and railway vehicles, this unique museum is for rail fans, train spotters, history buffs and families alike.
The Canadian Railway Museum is a must-see for any rail enthusiast. I spent 4 hours here and could have stayed longer. The display of rolling stock, including several locomotives, is very impressive and you can go aboard several. There's a short free film about the Toronto streetcars called The Red Rocket that's quite enjoyable, plus I highly recommend the longer film about the building of the railway through the Rockies. There was a separate charge for that ($4 + tax) but it was well worth it. The staff are all very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

The Dorval Museum of Local History and Heritage is dedicated to highlighting various events and people who featured prominently in the City’s history. Located in the former coach house of the Forest and Stream Club and enriched by an atrium offering an unparalleled view of Lake Saint-Louis, the Museum combines historic cachet, innovative multimedia installations and original exhibits to offer its visitors a unique experience in the heart of Dorval’s history.
Very interesting exhibits that highlight the history of Dorval. They also have special exhibits that highlight events and things that influenced Dorval and its growth. When we were there they had a special on the Lachine Rapids and what they meant to Dorval.
The museum also talks about the English heritage that strongly influenced the culture of the area along with the French connection. Tribute is also given the peoples native to the land.
Ample parking is available. There are restrooms also inside. There are stairs that take you to he second floor. While some exhibits are in French, they do have translated transcripts available to read.
The host and hostess the day we were there were very helpful and provided some very interesting insights regarding the people in the pictures on display. Definitely worth a visit even if it isn't raining.

The pioneer passion and determination still flow in our veins Domaine Labranche starts with the story of the Desgroseilliers family, fueled by the daily passion and fun as eight generations worked the land of Quebec’s Roussillon region. The family members have the true character of their proud ancestor Medard Chouart des Groseilliers, an adventurer with legendary bravery, a trapper and reckless traveler. He led the first ship that reached Hudson Bay by the northern sea routes. Back from this successful Mission in 1670, he was instrumental in creating the Hudson Bay Company. After the British conquest in 1772, Joseph Prosper, great-grandson of Medard, moved his family close to St. Isidore where now, much like the first settlers, he devoted himself passionately to agriculture. Pleasures to share Over the generations, the Desgroseilliers family diversified its agricultural activities to share the treasures produced on their land with the general public. In the 1920s, in every spring, Willie tapped maple trees located on his land to produce maple syrup for his family and some grocery stores in Montreal. The maple business became so big that Willie built a small shack in the middle of the sugar bush, a friendly gathering place in which to receive family and friends. This is the spirit that still persists today, at the Labranche sugar shack. But why stop there? From the branch whence the sap flows in the spring, there are vines and apples that bear their fruit in the fall. From the spirit of the most recent generation born in 2009, the Domaine Labranche now includes the maple sugar business, a cider mill and winery, where liquor is now produced from the fertile lands of St. Isidore, where you’ll find unique products that highlight the uniqueness of Quebec lands. True to their origins, the Desgroseilliers family deepen their skills, working in harmony with nature, and continue on their quest to introduce and offer high- quality innovative products.
Labranche is a Quebec apple and maple orchard approximately 40 minutes from downtown Montreal. It is an excellent example of rural agri-tourism, and of course in Quebec that also means it comes with a hearty meal. Labranche's cabane-a-sucre was excellent, with several dishes available (beans, ham, eggs, bacon, coleslaw, soup). And you get to choose just how much maple syrup you want to drown your bacon and eggs in (much appreciated by those in our group not born with a sweet tooth). They also accommodated my dairy free needs. On top of an nice meal and tasty desserts, free samples of maple wine and iced and fire cider were available. Each comes in a classy package that would make for an excellent gift or souvenir (I bought one of each cider for a wedding gift). Staff were very friendly and welcoming. The meal was completed with a stick of frozen maple, another Quebec delicacy that will make your visit outside of summer well worth it. I can't wait to return in autumn for apple picking!

Haven't been here for 30 years so I was pleasantly surprised to find a still-vibrant shopping venue offering a good selection of stores. It was bright, clean and seemed to enjoy a good amount of traffic and people seemed to be enjoying themselves.
In this age of declining malls, Fairview seems to be holding its own.

36 Hole prestigious Semi Private Golf Club Club de Golf 36 trous Semi Prive prestigieux
Great golf course, very well maintained fairways and spectacular greens. This semi-private course is a must play for golfers of all skill levels. I recommend playing the atlantide course and not the done quichotte as there's a big difference in quality. Seems like the club put all their efforts into one course. Also, make sure you take your cameras out for their signature hole #15 as the view are just simply spectacular.

My son loves bowling, so we had his 9th birthday party at Quillorama II and all the kids had a blast..especially when they were able to create their own monsters by bowling for certain body parts. The staff is very friendly and went out of their way to make it a great day for our son. Will definitely be going back next year!!

The Caughnawaga Golf Club is a 27 hole public “Parkland” golf course. Complete Golf and Food service amenities, a great practice facility (only grass practice tee, no mats here), chipping green, practice bunker, and 2 putting greens. Located on the South Shore (route 207) minutes off Autoroute #30 and 15 minutes away from downtown Montreal, the Caughnawaga Golf Club is a stress-free, natural environment where you will enjoy one of the best golf experiences in the Montreal area, at amazingly reasonable rates. Our establishment was created in 1967 and is the result of an avid golfer’s dream and determination. It now offers splendid mature grounds, patiently and lovingly groomed over the years through the hard work and dedication of Angus Patton and his family. It also retains the special feeling of a family operated business thanks to the second generation of Patton’s now running it. The Pattons’ philosophy is to provide the public golfer with a first rate, total golf experience.
There is something welcoming when you return to a golf course that you have played before and find it just as satisfying. While nothing spectacular this course is nevertheless always fun to play.No one hole stands out, but overall when you are finished you walk off and feel as though you have had your game tested. Staff are friendly and leave you alone on the course. Pace of play is average. If you are in need of a game this is a good choice to play.
