Traveling to Montreal/Quebec City First Time!

Jump to last reply

I have already gotten some great comments and advice on the subject in the Fodorite Lounge but wanted to post here, of course. There will be four of us who have never been to Canada before .... DH & I, grown son and 16 yr. old GD. Son & GD live in Boston area, so we'd drive through and pick them up and go from there. I've ordered travel books but would love any comments about the destination (we'd go in July) and why you liked (or not) your visit there.

I'm especially interested in how to split the days between the two. I had started out thinking 3/3 but am now thinking maybe four nights Montreal, two nights Quebec after comments in the Lounge. Between the four of us, we love museums, hockey, music ... outdoor concerts, jazz, good restaurants ... especially French, seafood. We like to be in the center of historic areas and then able to walk to take public transport to do things, though we will have our car when needed. We love nice hotels with character ...

Do you think six days are enough to scratch the surface well of the two areas? Thanks so much for any help you can give. :) The trip will probably start July 26, and I think we'd go to Quebec City first.
