My mum and grandma are coming out for their first time ever this July. Neither of them have been this far east; mum's on Vancouver Island and grandma's in central Alberta, so this trip is A Big Deal for all of us.
Mum had the excellent idea of taking the train to Montreal for the day. This sounds like a lot of fun! I've never been there, so I don't really know the lay of the land. Do you have any suggestions of sights that we could go see? (Keep in mind we'll be restricted largely to walking, though a taxi here and there might be okay, too.)
Are there any yarn stores in the downtown core I should be aware of, so I can "accidentally" trip into one or two?
