    Hey Joe! Spencer’s suggestion for you and your wife to go to Montreal and Quebec City is a great one. I would, however, fly to Montreal and rent a car from there. Given your short time frame, the drive would take too much of your time. Boston to Montreal is about a six hour drive, then add on another three to Quebec City. If you have four days, that’s basically two full days of driving. I grew up in NH and went to university in Montreal, so I’ve done this route many times. Montreal is a great foodie city—hard to get a bad meal—and wonderful for people watching. Enjoy!
