My husband and I are traveling up to Quebec City for a wedding from Charlotte, NC in early October. The flights are outrageous ($650). Does anyone have suggestion on alternative travel? We will depart on a Thursday (am) and need to be back by Sunday (pm). We are leaving the kids w /the grandparents so any tips on "must see" while in Quebec would be awesome! Thanks

If you can, I suggest you fly to Burlington, Vermont. It`s a small airport but very friendly. Then you could rent a car and drive across the border. You`re looking at about a 4 hour drive. It`s a boring highway but well worth the money you`ll save. It`s very easy to follow signs to Quebec City (highway 20). Try booking a hotel/motel in Levis. It`s just accross the bridge from Quebec City but much cheaper. You can pretty much walk around and see the Plains of Abraham (battlefield), The Citadel, the Old Port & Chateau Frontenac (take pics to show the kids a real castle). Parking is a bit of a pain and if you can get bus shuttle service it`ll save you a headache. Lots of Cafes, shops and history. An evening stroll along the St. Laurence is very romantic ;) AND if you have a car you can drive to the Chutes de Montemorency which is also very easy to get to. Montreal is 3 hours from Quebec and abt 1 hour detour, if you have time.
Enjoy!

If you had more time, another option might be to fly to New York, which would cost approximately $200, and then take a train from New York to Montreal, and finally another train from Montreal to Quebec. The train travel would run you about $110, but it would take at least two days to complete the trip. The $650 flight might be more acceptable if you get to see Perce Rock or the Saguenay Fjord while you are in Quebec. Whale watching at the St. Lawrence estuary is also very popular.
