Old Port of Montreal

The Old Port of Montreal (Vieux-Port de Montréal) is the historic port of Montreal, located along the Saint-Lawrence river. It no longer has any industrial activities and is now a recreational area, with many activities like the Montréal Science Centre, the Clock Tower (and its beach), a skating rink or a ferris wheel (coming soon).
