Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Chateau Dufresne (Dufresne House) and Westmount. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Rue Notre-Dame, admire the landmark architecture of Habitat 67, look for gifts at Divine Chocolatier, and take an in-depth tour of Cite d'Histoire et d'Archeologie de Montreal.
