I'm currently planning a bachelor party for a friend, and plan on holding it in Montreal next month. There a some people in our group who have a passing familiarity with the area, but mostly only know the nightclub scene. (Which, if they're correct, is in St. Laurent. I couldn't find anything online to verify.)
So far, my research shows that most of the happening is in downtown Montreal, Mont Royal, and Plateau Mont Royal areas. However, searching for stuff to do repeatedly turns up historical/slow-paced activities in Montreal (e.g., Vieux/Old Montreal, Place de Beaux Arts).
Given this, can anyone provide recommendations for activities? I'm mostly interested in daytime activities, but I'm open to nighttime ones as well. (And if it makes any difference, we're from the US, and know no French.)
