Quebec is at 250 Km of Mtl , so 2-3 hours and not 3-4. No, at least 3 hours given standard driving conditions, trust me I know, I drive there and back every weekend
Places to See, Do=
A really nice place to visit is the Musée de la civilisation. Many thematical exhibitions and a lot of activities for the whole family. Near the magnificient St-Lawrence River, it's a beautiful place to walk through.
There are other big places like the Musée de Québec, zoo and aquarium that should be pointed out. 18.104.22.168 22:02, 20 Aug 2005 (EDT)
The sugar shacks on Ile d'Orleans are regarded as tourist traps. They are not the real ones where you can get the traditional meals. The Quebecois prefer ones in other areas, especially the Beauce (south of Quebec City). An example is Cabane a Pierre in Frampton (http://www.cabaneapierre.com/englishversion.htm). This might be more appropriate for the Chaudiere-Appalaches page.
