You are coming to Canada ... we use Canadian dollars here ... like all countries we have our own currency...

Read about it here:

tripadvisor.com/Travel-g153339-s601/Canada:B…

Euros are for Europe. Francs are not used in France anymore.

Thanksgiving in Canada is in October, not November - so I assume you mean the first weekend of December. It will not be full bore winter yet, and indeed the weather will be pretty much like it is in Vermont.

For info on what to do in Quebec City, check the Top Questions in the Quebec City forum. Right now you are in the province of Quebec forum.

Hi Rhonda;

Just a reminder…citizens of the United States require one of the following to cross the border by land.

• U.S. Passport

• U.S. Passport Card

• Enhanced Driver’s License (EDL)

• Trusted Traveler Program Card

Kids 15 and under just need their birth certificates.

If flying you MUST have a passport.

For complete details;

Best Regards

If you are driving up stop at the duty free shop at the border and convert some US money to Canadian, for small purchases, tips, etc. They generally accept US currency, but you might not always get the exact exchange rate, but more importantly, using Canadian currency is simply the polite thing to do. They can't use Canadian currency here. Why should we use US currency there. All other purchaes are fine with your credit or debit card.

As for things to do, explore the old city. It will be getting ready for Christmas so lights and decorations will be going up. Walk around a little after dark to see more lights. Just with exploring the old city for a couple of days you'll find plenty to see and do.
