Two hours is just enough time to get a taste of Old Quebec city, especially if you're like us and you arrive there on a Sunday, when there isn't much traffic.

Old Quebec city with its cobblestone street side cafes, horse drawn carriages, fine restaurants will please most romantics. We were able to squeeze in many bronze statues (historical figures on horseback), and centuries old buildings since there are so many of them within a short walking distance. We also had time to stop for a coffee, baguette sandwich, and an ice cream cone before we left.

Driving across Quebec I felt that the province had such a European feel. Maybe it was the language, the food, or the architecture. Whatever it was, it was nice to taste. While passing along the freeway beside the Saint Lawrence Seaway there are some magnificent views to take in, showing how vast this waterway is, and why it is an engineering marvel.
