There's no shortage of good stuff to do in Montreal and Quebec City. However, along the road from I-93 in NH through Quebec it's a bit more sparse.

In Quebec City, the best thing (IMHO) is to just walk the Old City and enjoy the atmosphere, restaurants, museums, and architecture. Outside the city: check Montmorency Falls. Between Montreal and QC, La Mauricie (sp?) Provincial Park is excellent for kayaking and canoeing, and you can camp there.

In Montreal, there are numerous very good museums (modern art, fine arts, Canadian history, etc). We like shopping Little Italy at Jean-Talon Market on Saturdays. There's also a casino, La Ronde amusement park, Botanical Garderns, etc. See http://www.tourisme-montreal.org/ for more. But to enjoy Montreal you'll need to find a campground a bit out of town.

Beware of Provincial Campgrounds in Quebec

I agree Quebec City is beautiful .. summer or winter.. but if using Provincial parks.. no dogs are allowed in Quebec provincial parks.. just thought some might be interested.. Annie

The last time we were in Old Quebec there were 5 T-Shirt shops for every other shop. All with the same shirts. Real tourist trap, prehaps it has changed.

We are going. Taking the Caravel and likly make it a two day trip up. I think we could make it in a day but it would be a long one. I like to meander and generally stay off the Interstates until time's an issue.

Indeed we had some great meals in the old town. I was just very disappointed to see so many many many T shirt shops. This was 15 years ago. I Esp liked the tour of the fort where the English kicked butt. Of course the history of the area where the rally is going to be is very different.

Should be a good time, esp in the vintage section.

Talking Come One Come All

Okay guys, everyone is expressing an interest in this rally, but according to the host Claude Bouchier, only 18 tt have registered so far. Now we all know, this is going to be a GREAT RALLY !!! So lets show our support to the HOST UNIT! Early registration allows the host to get better entertainment, etc if he knows the exact tt count. So...........what are we all waiting for?

Gail,
You make such a good rally cheerleader that I think you need your own rally to run!

I still have a couple of openings for 2006 if you are interested in running a rally next year (there are openings in May, July and October).
