Quebec City/Montreal trip in less than a week!!

Jump to last reply

Hi folks,

It felt like it would never get here...but finally, our trip is rapidly approaching! Yay!!

Normally when I travel I have just about every minute planned out. But all of the reading I've done has given me the notion that I will want to relax, wander, and take in the lovely architecture, enjoy an afternoon snack at a cafe or sit in a park and enjoy nature. Truly a different pace than most of my vacations but I'm game!

How has the weather been for you folks? It's been a soggy wet mess here in Michigan for the last week. We leave next Thursday - I'm hoping for a bit of blue and sunshine for at least part of the trip! Here's a very loose outline of what I hope to see and do - your feedback is appreciated!

We are leaving Detroit on Thursday afternoon/evening and are driving to just outside of Toronto and will spend the night.
