    Hungry? Eat at the Chickenburger BEFORE you go through security. It's super awesome and actually an authentic Halifax thing. I recommend: chicken burger with mayo and fried onions and a coke.

    Do not plan on sleeping on the benches here, they have separating thingy between them. That being said, it's clean, there's free wifi, and you can easily find power outlets. Awesome airport

    Montréal's famous landmark, Notre-Dame Basilica, is a visually pleasing if slightly gaudy symphony of carved wood, paintings, gilded sculptures and stained-glass windows.

    You put your own baggage on the conveyor here; make sure to put soft bags in a bin. Legends right by Gate 18 has an awesome lobster roll.

    Great neck & back massage by gate 16. They also do feet massage. 10$ for 10 mins, then 5$/5mins. Very relaxing before a flight :-)

    Place d'Armes: This recently renovated square is framed by some of the finest buildings in Old Montréal, including its oldest bank, first skyscraper and Basilique Notre-Dame.

    Very airy and easy to navigate. If you have a long layover but don't want to leave the airport, take a wander to the adjacent hotel to hang at their lobby. Avoid Maritime Ale House.

    Clearwater sells a softer (less dry) version of dulse than the grocery store. Give it a try! Approx $4

    An excellent airport, but the new luggage drop-off system that requires you to get your bags into the scanner yourself after the ground staff clear it, feels like a duplication of effort!

    If you have your truck/car dropped off during the day for your late or early AM arrival, make sure the car/truck is put in daily parking spots not hourly. It will be costly at 03:00 AM pickup

    US departure section has nothing in it - just a crappy coffee shop. Go through customs as late as you can. Chicago and Philly flight often delayed/cancelled, check online before leaving home
