If you're visiting Montreal, it's well worth crossing the river and spending a day or two in Saint-Lambert. It's a small city that's best experienced in the open air by strolling along the harbor, relaxing in one of its 30 parks, and admiring the blend of modern and historic architectural styles. Le Balcon d'Art showcases an exciting selection of art from across the ages, while the Saint-Lambert Municipal Memorial Library acts as a hub of cultural enrichment for residents and tourists alike. Cycling enthusiasts will appreciate Saint-Lambert's vast network of bike trails that transport riders out of the urban environment and into a rural idyll of luscious meadows and long-forgotten chateaus.
During the summer months, Canadians from the surrounding areas descend on Saint-Lambert for its annual festivals, including Festival Classica, Foire d'Art Contemporaine de Saint-Lambert, and, most notably, Saint-Lambert Days, which takes place in the downtown core and combines music, street performance, and local products.
Saint-Lambert is just a 10-minute boat ride from one of Canada's major urban centers, Montreal, from which nationwide air, rail, and bus connections are available. Saint-Lambert's central train station also provides regional rail and bus links.
