Montreal & Quebec in March

Hi,

I am thinking about visiting Montreal & Quebec City during the last week of March next year. The hotel prices seem cheap during this time.

Does anybody know what the weather is like then and if it is a bad time to visit?

Thanks.

You just never know with the weather. March is still winter, so it could be very cold and there could be lots of snow, but maybe not. Whether you want to take advantage of the low hotel rates depends on what you plan to do while there. There are only a few things (gardens, outdoor cafes, boat rides)that would be better in warmer weather. Just dress for the climate so you'll be comfortable when out and about (if you're missing anything, you can always go shopping). If the weather's really nasty, just head for the underground city.

It's tied for worst time of the year with November. Cold, maybe snowy, probably grey, probably icy underfoot if not slushy.
But...
Go north of wither city,andyou'll still find great ski resorts, worth a visit for a day even ifyou do not ski. The restaurants are just as good, and the museums and art galleries have good exhibits, too. Just plan less time in Quebec City and more in Monteal thanyou might have in the summer when you'd stroll around the old part of Quebec City.
Early March will likely be below freezing during the day.

Hey, Steven. March is plain yucky. It smells like spring in the air, but it's still wet and slushy on the ground. But, Montreal is great indoors in winter : lots of shopping in the underground city, many trendy and chic restaurants, great club-hopping and people-watching, and museums. The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts has a Monet exhibit from January to May. Quebec City is more romantic and intimate, but still worthy of a 2 to 3 day visit.
A la prochaine!
