Top 10 Things to do in Dorval, Canada

July 21, 2017 Velvet Champine

Dorval /dɔːrˈvæl/ (French pronunciation: ​[dɔʁval]) is an on-island suburb on the island of Montreal in southwestern Quebec, Canada. In 2011, the Canadian Census indicated that the population increased by 0.7% to 18,088. Although the city has the largest surface area in the West Island, it is among the least densely populated. Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport constitutes about 60% of the city's land, forcing all of Dorval's population to be concentrated in the southern part of the city.

Very interesting exhibits that highlight the history of Dorval. They also have special exhibits that highlight events and things that influenced Dorval and its growth. When we were there they had a special on the Lachine Rapids and what they meant to Dorval.
The museum also talks about the English heritage that strongly influenced the culture of the area along with the French connection. Tribute is also given the peoples native to the land.
Ample parking is available. There are restrooms also inside. There are stairs that take you to he second floor. While some exhibits are in French, they do have translated transcripts available to read.
The host and hostess the day we were there were very helpful and provided some very interesting insights regarding the people in the pictures on display. Definitely worth a visit even if it isn't raining.

Reserve Faunique Marguerite d'Youville

Reviewed By M H - York, PA

First, a warning to folks not familiar with the area, coming from the East, without GPS: coming in through the Kahnawake reservation, there are not street signs! So study your maps carefully, because I had trouble knowing where to turn without signage.
Once there, the beginning was quite busy, with a full parking lot and lots of families with kids there to take walks, pick apples, etc. Once in the reserve with fees paid (plus tax, as always!), it was busy for the first kilometer or so with people pushing baby strollers (never advisable if you ask me, but at least here the trail at the beginning is wide/flat enough) and with little kids. Once you get past the Grande Digue it got quieter. Near North Point I saw a buck. Walking back on the east side of the island was the nicest and most quiet area. Taking the Petite Digue back, I saw 3 great egrets, many mallards, and a blue heron.

Notre-Dame Basilica

Montreal's oldest Catholic church, built in 1656, is known for its intricately designed interior, which includes stained glass chronicling the history of the city.

Reviewed By Anne19511231 - Montreal, Canada

Notre Dame Basilica is a must see in Montreal. Very close to The Old Port this church is magnificent! The architecture reminds us of some of the most noteworthy churches of Europe. The interior is awe inspiring. Include the visit while enjoying Old Montreal. As most tourists will tell you, this place is a taste of Europe in North America. I love my city!

Oh the pastries and treats here are to die for. Reasonably priced and so delicious. The outdoor vendors were scarce because of the season but this places rocks even more in the warmer weather. Parking can be tricky on weekends

Fairview Pointe Claire

Reviewed By peter_sonnenberg - Port Colborne, Ontario

Haven't been here for 30 years so I was pleasantly surprised to find a still-vibrant shopping venue offering a good selection of stores. It was bright, clean and seemed to enjoy a good amount of traffic and people seemed to be enjoying themselves.
In this age of declining malls, Fairview seems to be holding its own.

Old Montreal

Stroll, bicycle or take a horse-drawn carriage through the narrow cobblestone streets of Montreal's famous Parisian-style historic district, filled with cultural landmarks, museums, boutiques, sidewalk cafes and restaurants.

So much to see and do here. Plenty of great restaurants and sites to see plus tons of cool little shops. So reminds me of Europe but not as busy and much closer to home.

Our young daughters wanted to see this Expo and, quite honestly, I had little interest in seeing the exhibit.
I was pleasantly surprised to see the admission was free and the exhibit exceeded all expectations.
Very large exhibit that covers every imaginable theme from movies to musicals represented.
TIP *Expect to spend about half an hour.
