1st Time To Quebec City-Suggestions Please?

Jump to last reply

Hello Canadian experts-husband & I are taking a long overdue & spur of the moment trip the last week in March to celebrate my birthday & our 22nd anniversary. We're flying into Burlington, VT, renting a car(he insists) and driving up to Quebec City. Planning on about 4 days in QC with at least one day trip out from QC as we'll have the car, then back to the States to spend a day with our daughter who is in college at RPI in Troy, NY and ultimately flying back out of Burlington. We are a 50-ish laid back couple who are avid amateur photographers, moderately fit, enjoy beauty, history, local culture, good food & wine and friendly people. Our budget for hotels is not too big an issue as we've been saving for this opportunity but also don't want to spend all of our budget on fancy hotels-would like to keep the per night between $150 & $250 USD for somewhere centrally located that is clean & safe with parking available.

I would be very grateful for any ideas for day trips from QC that would be fun & interesting and, of course, suggestions for lodging in QC, any sights or experiences that we shouldn't miss, good restaurants and basically, just any helpful tips that we might need to know. We speak a little French but have read that most of the natives do speak some English.

Thanks in advance for taking time to help us out-it would be much appreciated as we want this to be a fabulous trip!
