OT: Good place to take some vacations? ( with travel included, i dont have a car)

Hi

Im lookin forward to take some vacations in about 3 weeks, and i would like to get out of this Montreal Island to a cool place where i can relax for 3-4 days, have some place where i can swim a bit.Im seeking something not too expensive, and where they can offer a travel service from montreal too.
Looking forward to take some vacations where there only woods around me, out of the urban zone.

Thanks if you have any suggestion!

Charlevoix would be a good start as a destination. Fresh air, plenty of organized trips.

And miss the parade? Probably a good idea, fans will burn down the city.

Cheap bear, VAN-HAB, what you do in your spare time should remain between you and the bear. Crazy west-coasters.

Anyone who does not take advantage of that deal is clearly a terrorist.

You're paying the ticket here, it has nothing to do with Euro.
Its the price of the plane ticket which is usually a lot more expensive than that.

I know, I travel frequently.

I was pointing out that the cab ride from the airport in Rome (Fiumicino) into the City would almost cost you as much as the pre-tax cost of the flight.

Not everywhere... In Portugal a beer costs 20 cents tax in... you can eat great meals for less than 10$... public transportation is quite cheap aswell.

One of the best places to visit in the Charlevoix region.
I took a couple of pics while i was there:
.................................................. ..

This one is high up from the camping ground
looking down on Tadoussac:




And i took this one of the sailboat named "Marie-Clarisse"
coming in the bay of Tadoussac, emerging from the fog:




And this is one of the ferry you
need to take to go to Tadoussac:
