GUEST,LynnT BS: Travel Hints for Canada? (84* d) RE: BS: Travel Hints for Canada? 09 Jun 09

This thread has great timing!

Richard and I are getting married in July, but we are taking our honeymoon from June 24-July 4 (life is uncertain -- eat dessert first!) to attend several French & Indian War reenactment events in upstate NY and Canada (it's the 250th anniversary of that conflict). We're starting in DC, going up to Ft Ticonderoga via the Delaware Water Gap, canoeing one day on Lake Champlain, then onward to spend a few days in Montreal before scooting back home before the July 4 traffic chokes us.

I appreciate all the Montreal ideas, but if we are on a budget, are there particular areas of town we should seek to stay in -- or any to particularly avoid? In DC, for example, one could get a hotel room for cheap in Anacostia or out on Central Ave, but I would not recommend that to anyone; I'd be more inclined to suggest staying in Falls Church and taking the Metro into town.

Can anyone offer similar ideas for Montreal? Or suggest a particular (budget) hotel or b&b?

Many thanks!
