    I'm trying to figure out which weekend trip should I do Columbus Day weekend. Should I go to Montreal, a city that I loved and I've been to twice during the last year? Or Quebec city, a city that I've never been to, but I've heard it was boring, but a little cheaper? Is Quebec city a fun city to go to? I haven't heard too much about it.

    I'm not sure I'll do anything too touristy. Just drink a lot, eat good food, go to some clubs, and get some French-Canadian ass.

    Quebec City is great, but for touristy stuff. Yes, there are a few cool bars but for what you aim to do, go to Montreal. Or spend one day in Qc City, you'll have enough.

    If what I heard from one particularly hot boy from Quebec City told me after I gave him the pounding of his life... Quebec City guys go to Montréal to do their serious partying.

    Mind you this was during La Fiérte (Pride) when Montréal was packed with all kinds of boys from all around. ;)

    Are you just going for a weekend of sex and partying or do you actually have any interest in the historical aspects of places? Quebec City is the only walled city in North America.. probably the oldest, and has a lot of interesting things to see and do over a weekend . I would go just to see it.. you' may just love it regardless of what others say. Montreal will always be there.

    If Columbus day is Canadian Thanksgiving day I would do Montreal since there is a big gay circuit party that week end. Quebec city is a quiet provincial place for culture more so than party and fun.

    Enjoy!

    Montreal is fun in a Sodom and Gomorrah way. I've never seen so many bathhouses and strip joints on one block.

    Thanks for the advice, actually I think I might try spending a day in Quebec City, then the next two in Montreal. They are only like 3 hours apart, right?

    "Pourquoi ne pas voir les deux?" - You have to drive through Montreal to get to Quebec City anyway. Do Montreal, then do a short day trip up to Quebec City to sightsee then go back to Montreal. Everything there is open late - so you can get back at 10 p.m. and hit the Village icon_smile.gif

    Quebec City is a whole nother world compared to any other city in Canada or the US.. Most of the people do not speak English yet I wouldn't expect them to be rude or anything to you because you maybe can't speak French.. that's part of the fun of it and makes it memorable. Go to a gay bar there and who knows you may just find some hotty or group of guys to sit around have a good time . When you're a visitor in a smaller place than a big city people tend to be more accomodating to visitors. imo

    Actually yes, this is somewhat of what I'm looking for, which makes Quebec City so intriguing for me. I think it's somewhat of a fun novelty to hang out with a group of guys who cannot speak English. Even though I don't speak French.

    If you like history and old buildings, try Quebec City. If you like hot gay men who speak a foreign language, go anywhere in the Province. If you want the foreign men and clubs, your flight should land in Montreal. Bon chance!

    I love Montréal, but I spent five years in Québec city while I was at university and loved it! it is slower pace than Montréal but it is beautiful. The big park in downtown, the Plains of Abraham, is always beautiful but especially so in the fall. I would also suggest that you take a short drive and go to Ile d'Orlean. Orleans Island is about 15 minutes outside of Québec city and there are all kinds of bed and breakfasts and great small restaurants a lot of which are right on the water. I would also suggest that you go up into the mountains north of Québec City they are also very beautiful. Take the ferry to Lévi. Just stay on it and make the round trip. You will have some stunning views of the Chateau Frontenac and the city. Really great at night. Most of the local cafe culture has moved down to the lower city and left the upper to the tourists. And yes a lot of people speak English to some degree.

    If I go to Montreal Fri and Sat, and Quebec City Sunday, will La Drague be exciting Sunday night?
