Our Quebec Itinerary: How Long in Each Place?

The 5-night Quebec province itinerary was as follows:

  • Drive from Boston to Montreal (5.5 hours)
  • Stay in Montreal 2 nights at the Omni (note: all hotels are affiliates)
  • Drive to Mont Tremblant from Montreal (2 hours)
  • Stay in Mont Tremblant 1 night at the Fairmont 
  • Drive to Quebec City (4 hours)
  • Stay in Quebec City 2 nights at the Saint-Paul
  • Drive to Boston from Quebec City (7 hours)

Depending on your driving desires, if you’re coming from anywhere around Boston or New England, you may want to break up the trip into or out of Canada with an overnight stay in Vermont. There are plenty of cute towns on the way, including covered the bridge beauty, Woodstock, VT. and the kid-friendly family resort, Smugglers’ Notch.

Montreal or Quebec City?

For people with limited time, the question always arises: “Is Montreal or Quebec City better if I can only visit one?” Now, the conventional wisdom in Boston is to pick Montreal because it’s a shorter drive, and has excellent food, music, and European flavor, BUT… I urge you to read on.

Though Montreal is very cool, I found Quebec City positively MAGICAL. In my opinion, if you can only choose one, Quebec City is WELL worth the extra hour and a half driving. It is one of my favorite cities in the world, and I’ve been to a lot of cities! There is nothing like it, and I cannot recommend it enough. 

Now without further ado, here are tips on what to do in Montreal, Mont Tremblant, and Quebec City, Canada…
