Explore Canada's riverside on this tour as you leave Ontario skirting along the Ottawa River. You'll cross into Quebec to travel down the St. Lawrence River and Seaway north to Quebec City, and finally south to Montreal. Begin in Ottawa, Canada's capital, to visit the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the Peace Tower, and Sparks Street Mall, offering shops, restaurants, and theaters. Drive northeast to Joliette and stop at the Manoir Boucher-de-Niverville, a restored mansion that has been filled with local antiques. Travel northeast to Quebec City where you can tour the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac, and the Dufferin Terrace. Head south for the last city on your tour, Montreal. Make sure to schedule time for Place Bonaventure, and Olympic Park--the site of the 1976 Summer Olympic Games.
