My brother and I will be taking our first ever road trip together to Quebec, Canada this summer. I have zero experience traveling with kids and could use as much advice from you as possible.
He’s 13 year’s old and we’re leaving from Pennsylvania driving north into Quebec. We’re going to Montreal and Quebec City but it’d be nice to see what else there is to do outside of the cities. Along the way, we’ll probably make a few pit stops. It’s a 7 hour or so drive to Montreal.
I’m really excited about this trip. I’ve been traveling around the world for three years and to a 13 year old, that’s a really long time. We get along super well and he considers me the travel expert that has his own business. We’re both gamers so I imagine there’s going to be some paintball involved somewhere along our trip.
I think this is going to be something really great for the both of us. We’ve never done anything big like this together and I’m usually away traveling and just visiting during the summer months each year.
Planning and What I’ve Done So Far
I bought a Lonely Planet Quebec book that he has been highlighting and taking notes on before our trip. I told him that I’m depending on him to do a lot of the research and so far that has got him really excited to find out what there is to do.
We haven’t really planned out how long the trip is going to be but I’m thinking about a week.
Accommodation will probably be mostly in private room hostels.
What advice do you have for traveling with kids? Any activities you know of in Quebec for kids?
