    Driving time from Boston to Montreal?

    Hi all!

    Quick question: How long does it take for the Boston to Montreal drive, usually? i assume that the fastest route is i-93 to i-91 across the Derby line at the border, right?

    Thanks! I really haven't a clue and hopefully one of you regular drivers (Eager?) will enlighten me!

    Lightbulb Just six hours

    Six hours, from Logan airport to Champlain bridge. Assuming one 15min stop at Montpellier (Vermont) for gas & munchies.

    Some people prefer NY state all the way, when I was doing it did not have cruise control and I hate driving at 95km/hr when used to 120km/hr

    Also the route is more scenic through the mountains. At this time of the year you might still get snow!

    ...but divorce had me lose weight...I can see the tip now!

    If you're taking 93 to 91, Montpelier's pretty far out of the way. Not worth it, either.
    As for time, let's see, from Boston to my house: 2 and 1/4 hours...from my house to Montreal, 3 and a 1/2 hours, so yes, almost 6 hours stopping only for gas and munchies.

    I agree, highly recommended, plus once you cross over you are on Quebec RT 133, convenient to scoping out Chez Diane, Erotica, etc, on the
    way into the city

    It all depends on who's doing the driving. It would probably take me 6 hrs since i like to take my time driving and enjoy the scenery. The older i get, the more i realize that life is way too short and i'd rather take it all in and not rush through it. On the other hand, i know a particular driver in Mtl who could easily make it in 4 hrs.

    I have to admit, as I live north of the southern terminus of 89, I never drive that way, nor had I considered it. You learn something new every day.

    Look out for speed traps on 89 N of Burlington. Speeding tickets are one of the main industries in the area.

    5 hours is my average...

    I take 93 to 89 with 1 stop in NH & VT and average speeds of 70mph...

    The fastest I've made it up was 3Hrs 45Mins... Left @ 1am, made 1 stop & had a average speed of 95-100mph...

    No kidding.... I can't remember the last time I saw a cop on those streaches through VT.
