Montreal and Quebec City in August

Jump to last reply

I'd love suggestions on how to maximize the Montreal/QC experience - 4 nights in Montreal and 3 in QC. I was wondering if 2 days in QC and a trip to Baie-St. Paul would work? Baie-St. Paul sounds gorgeous and different. We are hoping to book a place in the Plateau and figure we can check out the day sites and hang out in the neighborhood at night - sound about right? We're all for renting a bike around the park (just like home!) and would be open to checking out the Biosphere and Botanical Gardens (are they easily accessible by public transportation?). QC, from what I hear, is very small and easy to navigate. Any particular things we should focus on while there?

We'll fly in to Montreal from NY on a Sat. and arrive either at 9:25am or around noon. We'd leave Montreal on Wed. and train or bus (thinking bus - apparently it's about 20 minutes longer but half the price - yes? no?) to QC and we'll fly home out of QC on Sat.

All suggestions and local info is welcome! Thanks in advance. This site has always been helpful and, once in Rome, provided me with the opportunity to meet wonderful travelers who were there at the same time as I was - and that made the trip doubly special.

Thanks again!
