Once you've recovered from the trip, you can take the rental car to the Montmorency Falls. History lovers can also take a trip to the Château Frontenac and the Musée de la Civilisation. You can end the evening with a walk through Vieux-Québec, Québec's old town.
Once you have visited all the highlights on your list for Québec, the journey by rental car can continue to Montreal. The trip will only take about three hours with the right rental car.

Ottawa, the capital of Canada, lies directly on the Rideau Canal and is often underestimated. You can rent a car in Ottawa to drive to historic sites, national attractions and government buildings. If you'd like to get something to eat afterwards, you can explore Ottawa's famous and varied food scene. For example, try the typical Canadian lard pastry "Beavertail", which you can pimp with numerous toppings such as smarties, cinnamon or whipped cream.
The last destination of your road trip could be Toronto. Visit the Canadian National Tower, from where you can enjoy a gigantic view over the city. In the case of good weather you can even see as far as the USA. Don't miss the Distillery District if you like beer, good food and history. The old industrial area is located in the east of downtown Toronto and offers numerous cafes, restaurants and other shops. Treat yourself to a cup of coffee and enjoy Toronto!
