Anyone driven from Portland, ME to Quebec City?

Jump to last reply

Our family is planning to go to Quebec City and surrounds for a week for our family summer vacation.

Flying DC to Portland non-stop is about $1200 less (total) than flying to Quebec City (with a layover in Montreal or Toronto).

The savings are significant enough that I am considering going the Portland route - including staying in Portland the first night to be fresh for the 5-1/2 hours drive.

I am getting push-back, however, from DW who feels that the drive would be SO boring and desolate that it justifys both the increased budget and the layovers going and returning.

We have no first hand knowledge of what lies between these two cities and need first hand knowledge. The input of "strangers", we agreed, will be the decinding factor.

What can we expect along this route???
