Any tips or ideas would be greatly appreciated!! We have lodging booked as we needed to stick to a budget and I found great deals.. plus we need internet connection for our laptop on the road. We love gardens, music and sites of historical and cultural nature.
Whew...with gas prices the way they are we opted for a new Toyota Prius.. see our trip details and sign our guestbook!
Enjoy your journeys...

In Montreal, have a beer at a terrace on St. Denis Street (Latin quarter), take a walk on St. Laurent or Crescent street. Eat a a French Restaurant (I suggest Le Petit Extra on Ontario near Papineau) and take a walk in Old town.
Don't miss the Terrasse Dufferin, the Chateau Frontenac beside the St. Lawrence, the basilique Notre-Dame and the old town (basse ville) in Quebec. Have a night of great jazz at the Clarendon Hotel (corner of Des Jardins & Ste-Anne) go eat a Poutine at an Ashton restaurant, have dinner at Le Cochon Dingue in Old town or have a pic-nic at the Plaines d'Abraham. Try a B&B in Orleans Island and stop by the Montgomery falls.
In the Gaspesie region (near NB), have a morue dinner with Matane shrimps at a roadside restaurant.
Have a great trip and take it easy!:-)
