I may be in Montreal in the coming months. I hear good things, but don't know much about it. I know this is vague, but that is there to see and do? What are the people like? Please provide recommendations about sightseeing, museums, restaurants, parks, etc. I want to stay within city limits.

Everyone speaks English, don't worry about a "language barrier"

Not everyone but as a tourist you should not encounter any difficulties if you do not speak French.
