14. Re: Driving to Quebec City and onto Montreal

today, 3:07

Many many thanks for all your advice,we left Tremblant early and got through road works and had a great drive through some very picturesque villages as advised. Now final questions on our final route.We need to get back to Stanley Street Montreal to drop the car but think its wise not to get there until about 7.30 to miss the rush hour.Sooooo are there any suggestions where we could stop off on the southern side between Quebec City and Montreal for a few hours and secondly what bridge would be recommended for getting to Stanley Street Montreal.So many thanks for all the advice so far it really has made a difference to our first visit to Canada

You could stop in St-Lambert, which is right beside the Victoria Bridge. The bridge reopens it's lane to the city around 7h15 pm. If you have a GPS, then any bridge between Jacques Cartier, Victoria or Champlain is fine... (I prefer Victoria as you will be on Stanley St within 5 minutes of your arrival on the island.)

In St-Lambert, Victoria St is the main commercial street where you may eat, have coffee, etc

Maybe pick some villages among beauxvillages.qc.ca/carte_eng_ensemble.htm

As you may have read, the A20 highway is VERY dull...

Is you have a gps Victoria Bridge is indeed more direct. If you take Jacques-Cartier bridge, driving on Sherbrooke street all the way to Stanley is very nice.(some congestion could still be expected a few blocks east of Papineau street)

Nature and a bit of culture at Mont-Saint-Hilaire, one of the small "Montérégiennes" mountains in the Plain of Saint-Lawrence. It is a UNESCO World Natural Preserve and belongs to McGill University. Some trekking around. Also this village has seen many good artists so there is a small museum and if the church is open then you can have a look at some frescoes by our last great church decorator, Ozias Leduc. You can also drive to the Manoir-Rouville Campbell nearby, now it is a small luxury hotel but you can have a drink and walk around the grounds. This was one of the last of the manors built under the Seigneurial Régime and in the 60/70's was the home and workshop of ceramist and sculptor Jordi Bonet.

History with a bit of culture, then stop at Village Québécois d'Antan near Drummondville, so almost halfway between Québec City and Montréal.
