From The New York Times:
We are two adults and two boys (ages 3 and 7) staying a July week in Montreal and Quebec City. We intend to rent an apartment. Any suggestions as to usual places of interest — children’s museums, parks, cruises, etc? We will use public transportation.
Kah Heng Phon,
Both cities are très family friendly. Montreal has kid- and adult-friendly options like the lovely Mount Royal Park, the Insectarium (4581, rue Sherbrooke Est; 514-872-1400; www2.ville.montreal.qc.ca/insectarium), the Biodôme de Montréal science center (4777, avenue Pierre-de Coubertin; 514-868-3000; www2.ville.montreal.qc.ca) and the amusement park Ronde (22, chemin MacDonald; 514-397-2000; www.laronde.com). For more ideas, including dining and hotel options, take a look at “36 Hours in Montreal” by Aric Chen (Oct. 22, 2006). There are several day cruises in Montreal, including the Bateau-Mouche (514-849-9952; www.bateaumouche.ca), with a route around the city on the St. Lawrence River with family discounts.
