    Thinking about trips for next summer, looking for campground recommendations at Thousand Island NP. We would like to spend a few days kayaking the St Lawrence River area and maybe some biking. Is three days enough? any must see things that you would recommend.

    Montreal:
    Looking for campground recommendations close to Montreal. Is three days enough? Do they have a subway system similar to Boston/NY/Washington that we might be able to take advantage of? Any must things to see that you would recommend?

    My Initial itinerary is to travel up I-87 in NY to Montreal (may stop 1 or 2 nights in Lake George area) then after Montreal head west to 1000 Island NP.

    Total trip time 9 days

    Thanks everyone for your replies
    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    They do have a subway/rail network as well as a good bus system. Arguably, the public transit is the best way to get around the city. A three consecutive day pass for the busses and Metro is currently $18 (Cdn) which probably equates to about $13-14 US. This gives you unlimited use of the network. Here is the link for the information site (in English). http://www.stm.info/en/about/financial_and_corporate_information/about-stm

    When we've been in Montreal we've always stayed at parks fairly close to subway/train stations. Montreal has a great museum and attractions visitor pass that gets you into lots of tourist sights. Whether or not 3 days is enough depends on your interest in museums, botanical gardens and that sort of stuff.

    Here's info on the museum pass: http://museesmontreal.org/en/passes/the-passes

    Unless there is a huge uptake in the value of the Cdn $ (I can only hope) I think you'll be ok. Currently the U$ is trading at about U$0.75 for a loonie. We're planning on heading to NYC next summer and that will hurt my wallet exchanging Cdn $ to U$. :(
