Quebec or Montreal

I am going to post this topic in both forums, but I have got 5 days in late October to spend in both cities. I will visit both but which one should I stay longer in and why!

I'm travelling on my own and like to see the sights, I'm not into art galleries or churches.At night I like to see some popular theater/ show and then like to find a good bar for a few beers. I want to go to the Hockey in Montreal, so that will depend on the schedule when it is issued.

Having visited both cities many times, and based upon your input, I would probably recommend 3 days in Montreal and 2 in Quebec for you. Montreal is a much larger, more metropolitan city, and therefore offers a wider variety of sports, theatre and night-life. Quebec City is smaller, much more European, old-world - the only walled city in North America, I believe, and one of the oldest - 399 years - with much history, restaurants to die for - and so much of it readily accessible on foot. I would stay within the walls, if at all possible. Have a great trip.

Ellis, I just found this query now. I've answered on your Mtl forum post (in case you'd be counting ;-) ... ). See you in Québec, and I hope you'll be here on time to see and hear the thousands and thousands of snowy geese migrating south then.

QCTraveler: your post is a good resumé of my thoughts, and other posters' thoughts as expressed in the other post.
