### Guided Tour of Old Montréal (Friday) The conference venue is adjacent to Old Montréal, the historical part of the city. This tour will take you through narrow cobblestone streets lined with buildings that date as far back as the 1600s. We'll pass by many souvenir shops, galleries, and restaurants, as well as take in some of Montreal's landmarks. Since we're not too far from the conference centre, grabbing lunch at one of the restaurants along Rue St-Paul before heading back is a tasty possibility! *You'll be responsible for paying for your own lunch.*

### Guided Tour of Plateau Mont-Royal (Saturday) One of the most well known neighbourhoods of Montreal, the Plateau Mont-Royal is characterized by brightly coloured houses, cafés, book shops, and a laissez-faire attitude. It's the location of some famous attractions on Saint Laurent Boulevard, including Schwartz's Deli (famous for its Montreal smoked meat), and a weekend street fair during the summer that sees extremely crowded streets. In 1997, Utne Reader rated it one of the 15 "hippest" neighbourhoods in North America. Note: This tour will required 2 metro tickets ($6.00). If you can, please buy them before the tour to avoid line ups.
