Our Road Trip Adventure | Vermont and Quebec City

May 28, 2019
Happy Tuesday friends! It's so great to back and dare I say I feel quite refreshed after our week long vacation! We got back on Saturday and had the rest of the long weekend to recuperate & get everything in order before getting back to work. While planning our road trip, I thought we'd have more time the day we arrived, which was clearly a rookie mistake traveling with a baby!  If I had to do it again, I think I would add an extra day in Quebec City & Montreal, but that's only because Vermont is closer to us and we've been before.  I decided to split the trip up with the first two stops and then Montreal with things I learned in a separate post. Fair warning...both will be very photo heavy posts.

We started our trip in Stowe, Vermont to break up our drive to Canada. Six hours just seemed like too much to go with Sophia on our first go around. We stayed at the Lodge at Spruce Peak which was just perfect! It's not peak season so there weren't many people around and we really enjoyed feeling like we were the only ones there. We didn't do much for our full day in Stowe, but that's because we knew we'd be non-stop in Canada so we wanted to take it easy. You can check out all we did in Stowe in the winter in this post! We had the best burger at the lodge, introduced Sophia to some horses, ordered room service with dessert & ate a pretty delicious pizza at Piecaso

On Tuesday we made our way to Quebec City. About a four hour drive from Stowe, this got us into the city late in the afternoon. Our AirBnB wasn't available until four, so we opted for an early dinner at Le Chic Shack , a photo op near the Farimont Le Chateau Frontenac and called it a day. 

 Picked up this cute crew neck top the day before we left!

We had one full day to explore and took full advantage of the gorgeous weather. I had no idea how hilly Quebec City is and let's just say that I absolutely got my workout in that day! The city is incredibly charming and makes you feel like you've traveled to Europe. We had a late breakfast at Le Omlette, spent some time exploring while Sophia napped and then made our way to Montmorency Falls.

It's a quick drive out of the city to see this natural wonder. The waterfalls themselves are actually taller than Niagara Falls and have a cable car that will take you all the way up. If we were on our own we probably would have gone to the top, but instead we opted to stay on the foot path and get closer to the falls without scaring her. 
I absolutely loved Quebec City and wish we could have experienced more of the restaurant scene, but the two places we picked were family friendly and easy to maneuver with a nine month old, which was my only criteria! 
We also had a picnic in the park for an early dinner when a car drove into the lobby of the Airbnb we were staying in! If you want to see what I'm talking about, here's a link to the new story! Hope you'll come back tomorrow for the Montreal recap!

  7. Always the prettiest pictures... & always love your smiley beautiful babe! She's just always so happy - or at least covers it well for the camera.

  8. What an amazing family trip and sounds like "BabyLove" was a trooper (you know I like to nickname all my friends' babies) LOL. Quebec looks beautiful and I would have never known it was so hilly. Sounds like you got amazing weather to explore!

  9. I saw when you posted about the crash on your Insta, that is mind blowing! I love Stowe so much, especially during the offseason. I'm loving that you guys did this trip!!

  10. What a great trip! I love all of the pictures. We love Quebec city but didn't get a chance to visit Montreal and the boys are asking to go to Vermont so we are considering taking the Airstream this year. So glad you had a great time! Sierra Beautifully Candid

  11. What a lovely place! Sophia is going to be well traveled before she's even old enough to remember it! Makes me want to start traveling more with our kiddos!

  12. I didn't know it was so hilly either! Good to know for a future trip. I LOVE the photo of the three of you in front of the falls!
