Quebec City

No, this isn't another move a team to Quebec City threads, though I agree that needs to happen!

Anyways, I went to Quebec City this past summer and loved it, so I am thinking of going back this upcoming summer. I am, this time going with a few friends as opposed to with my 'rents so I am wondering what is the cheapest way to survive in Quebec City for five days? We are going to be between 17 and 18 years old so our income is not really high. I'll have around 1.5K saved up or so. We would most likely drive from Moncton (about a 10 hour trip I think). Basically what I'm looking for is info on cheap (like cheapest) hotels and stuff. The thing I love about Quebec is that there are so many things to do for free (street shows and what not).

I know this has been spoken of before, but couldn't find the threads for the life of me haha. If someone could re-direct me for further reference it would be super appreciated!

I'd love to get to Montreal. I am more familiar with Quebec City, having been there twice already. I was going to go see the Habs and Bruins play in March, but alas, work
We may yet decide Montreal, it seems more of a party town (well dur right?) but I will only be 17, as will 2 of my friends. How hard would it be for me to have fun?

Looks pretty cool from the google search. I also like the cheapness of it haha.

Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré is a town just outside of Quebec City, and has quite a few cheap motels. I'd say that considering how low the crime rate in QC is that's not a risk at all. Just a 20+ minute drive to downtown.

Montreal has a better atmosphere for walking outside and has more stuff to do. Quebec has some good ladies clubs like Lady Mary-Ann and the clubs are more or less the same but the best part of the city is sightseeing which is a lot better than Montreal.

Thanks for the tip about Saint-Anne-de-Beaupré, I imagine I'd end up doing something like that. And also, I would not be worried about being robbed, being six foot three has its advantages. (not saying it'd be impossible, but I'm there are... easier targets? )

Anyways, I'd love to go to Montreal for the atmosphere, but I'm not so sure it'd be possible considering the fact I am only 17. I know in Quebec it is a lot easier to get into clubs and whatnot than here, and hell, I could easily pass for older based on my height alone, but still haha. I suppose it'll be one of those decisions we make as we get closer to the date.

If you're 17, go @ Star Bar/Star Club in Ste-Foy. There'll be plenty of people your age.

And don't bother staying in Ste-Anne de Beaupré, even if it's cheaper. If I were you, I'd stay downtown (old québec/ste-foy) so you can walk to where you want to go instead of always having to drive and find a parking.

You might want to come during the Festival d'été if you can, it starts july 7th. Lots of big shows.

Bars/clubs of interest:
- Dagobert
- Maurice Night Club
- Ozone Ste-Foy
- Star Bar/Club
- Pub Université Laval (kinda empty in the summer though)

Pubs:
- Saint-Patrick
- Ozone Grande-Allée
- P'tite Grenouille (live bands)
- Saint-Alexandre

I did a similar trip when I was 17-18 and stayed at the Youth Hostel http://www.aubergeinternationaledequ...ec_home.hostel

It's cheap, well situated, has a kitchen so you can save cash on food AND has tons of young people. We all had a blast.

If he actually want to do things, don't send him to Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré. Jesus. He has to be near the city.

there's plenty of cheap motels if you get on road 138 (Boulevard W.-Hamel). They're surely not 5 stars hotels but they're close enough to Old Quebec and it costs almost nothing.

Ontario's drinking age is 19, I have no chance at all to get into bars there. I have heard that in Quebec they are, shall we say, very liberal as to who they let in to bars haha.
