When in Quebec city, do make time for a tour of this island. Many of us have ancestors who came from Europe in the 1600 hundreds. There are so many wineries, breweries and cideries along with Apple orchards, strawberry growers, chocolate makers, bakeries and nougat...More
I enjoyed the drive. Here is why:

- Best way to see the fall/autumn colours
- There are some small family owned restaurant to have a snack
- You can stopover at some farmers markets...More
If you're visiting Quebec City, don't miss driving the Chemin Royal Road on the I'lle-d'Orleans! The island is so very beautiful. Our hotel in Rue St. Jean in Quebec City's Upper Town was only two blocks from a Hertz rental car agency. With our GPS...More

I did not understand how a road could be an attraction until we got to Ile D'Orleans. The Chemin Royal circles the entire island and is dotted with little towns, restaurants, wineries, sugar shacks, etc.
Ile d'Orleans is like a trip back in time to...More
My wife and I spent 7 nights in the Frontenac Suite at the Royal Dalhousie Condos overlooking a water park (well over 50 surface mounted fountains!), and the Saint Lawrence River. The view through the floor to ceiling windows is amazing. The over 2,000 sq....More
