Thinking of Quebec City vicinity...

LinLee(z5 MI)February 10, 2004

Hi

My DH and 2 teens are taking a trip (10 days) to the Montreal/Quebec City vicinity this August. The itinerary is still in the planning phase. What are the Âmust seeÂs of this region garden wise and other if we are more nature people than shopping people?

Travel Agents seem to think that everyone vacations to shop.

Thanks

You may want to consider the Biodome de Montreal

The Montreal Botanical Garden

There is a zoo (www.jardinzoologique.ca/) in Quebec City as well as an aquarium (Parc Aquarium du Quebec).

All are worth a visit to learn more about the natural history of the area as well as viewing exotic species of plants and animals.

If you are visiting Montreal first and then on to Quebec City, with a return through Montreal you might want to consider train travel from Montreal to Quebec City and back to Montreal. I have found the pricing to be fair; the trains prompt. And the parking in Montreal is secure.

Travel from Montreal to Ottawa to Quebec City to Montreal, is one heck of an experience! Much info of local transportation (cabs, buses, rail, etc.) on the web.

Here is a link that might be useful: VIA Rail Canada

Thank you for all the info. We are even able to take a train to Toronto...I hadn't thought of that before- us being from the "Motor City" area.

Don't forget Le Domaine Joly-de-Lotbinière, in Sainte Croix-De-Lotbinière ( 45 minutes West of Quebec City) and Parc Marie-Victorin in Kingsey Falls (between Montréal and Quebec). Domaine Joly de Lotbinière is a Canadian Heritage site featuring one of the most spectacular hiscorical garden of Eastern Canada. http://www.quebecdusud.ca/fiche_attrait.php?L=en&FicheID=423&S=3

For Parc Marie-Victorin, it's Quebec most beautiful park featuring giant three-dimensional mosaic installations. http://www.quebecdusud.ca/fiche_attrait.php?L=en&FicheID=353&S=3
