6 night trip to Montreal/Quebec City in late December?

Jump to last reply

Thanks in advance for any advice. I've got some vacation time left to use this year so my wife and I were thinking about taking a trip to Montreal/Quebec City right before Christmas. We're from Chicago, so it isn't too far of a flight. We've already had a few warm weather/tropical vacations so this seems like a nice change of pace, while still being affordable.

I was thinking we could fly to Montreal, spend 2 nights, train to Quebec City, spend 4 nights, fly back to Chicago. In late December is there enough for us to see/do to keep us occupied that long? We're in our mid twenties and enjoy sightseeing, eating/drinking, and I'd like to try some winter activities. I routinely play ice hockey so I'd enjoy checking out some of the picturesque ice rinks/paths available for public skating near Christmas. Dogsledding sounds like an awesome excursion to try as well.

Does this seem like a good trip idea/plan? What types of things could we see/do during that time of year? (Most of the other posts/guides I've found list things to do during the summer - I'm curious how we'd spend our time in the winter)

Thanks!
