I've decided to go to Montreal this weekend. I've book a hotel just blocks away from both Old Montreal and The Gay Village. I am super excited. Now, who has advice for visiting Montreal? I know a few sights I want to see like the basilica and the Museum of Fine Arts. My hotel also has access to the Underground City. I know I want to go to some of the clubs in The Village, so which ones are the best? Any advice will be welcomed. Do I need to get Canadian dollars there or will they take American as well? I know I need to get at least some cash. Also, my French is really terrible. I can basically order food. Is this going to be a problem? I spent three weeks in France once and my limited French was okay. Do most people in Montreal also speak English. I know these are some dumb questions, but I would love to know as much as I possibly can before I go.
PS Before anyone says it, I have an Enhanced Driver's License so I don't have to have a passport.
PSS Please give as much advice as possible.
