Driving distance for the day: 181.2 Miles

Rimouski is a nondescript town, but a few hours of driving took us to the charming Quebec City. We first arrived at Levis, then took the ferry across the St. Lawrence to Quebec City.

Quebec City is one of the oldest cities in North America. It is built on the hilly bank of the St. Lawrence River. The view from upper town is breathtaking.

And the city itself is full of charm, with photo opportunities at every turn.

We had some French Canadian food in the city — this plate includes roasted rabbit, roasted duck, smoked duck breast, duck liver and rabbit sausages.

But the best view of the city happens at night — at night the city glows like a gem.

And Chateau Frontenac also looks like a castle from a fairytale.
