Driving from Prince Edward Island to Quebec City

Jump to last reply

HI
We are holidaying in Canada September 2006 and we plan to spend 6 days in PEI and in getting to Quebec city by driving. Does anyone have suggestions for our time in PEI and also the drive to Quebec City. We are Aussies so we are used to driving long distances.

    Basically, you've got two routes to choose from. One is up the east coast of New Brunswick, through some fishing villages and some logging towns. There's a great park on the way, too.

    The alternative is to drive across the province through Moncton, Sussex, and Fredericton,a ndup the pastoral St.John River Valley, through agriculture land --mostly potatoes.

    On both routes, you cross from new Brunswick into forests in quenec and keep going until you geet to the south shore of the St. Lawrence River. turn left, and keep driving until you find yourselves across the river from Quebec City.

    The drive up the NB coast is significantly different from the ocean views from PEI, so it is not more of the same as you'd have seen on the island.

    I believe the St.John river route is faster, but only by a couple of hours.

    To me, the deciding fgactor would be how willing I was to stop and look around on the way.

    If you are against deadlines, Moncton - Sussex - Fredericton gives you great views out the car window, and you are in enough towns to get a decent lunch and a few snacks. My last trip involved leaving Moncton about 10:30, stopping in Fredericton for about an hour for a meeting, stopping outside Fredericton for strawberryshortcake (season is over by September) and arriving in Quebec City in time for dinner. Otherwise, I drove fast.

    But if you have two days for the trip, go up the New Brunswick coast, stop at the parks, explaore the tidal flats, ex[perience the Acadian / French culture.
