Default trip to Canada

So my girlfriend and I are driving up to Montreal and then up to Quebec City in a week. I haven't been to Montreal for a while, and I've never been to Quebec City. I have a few questions:

1) Should I be really cautious about speeding?
2) Anything definitely recommended to do in either city?
3) Should I exchange a bunch of US cash before I go, find a bank when I get there, or just use my check card for everything?

Thanks in advance.

A bit of cash doesn't hurt but using your bank or credit card works pretty good. Places that don't take one or the other are extremely rare.

If you can, try and stay in the Old part of Quebec City. There are more than a few great pubs and for fine dining you can't go wrong at Le Lapin Sautee.

Brunch at Le Chateau Frontenac is a must but it'll run ya at least $150 for two.

Speeding is always dodgy, but luckily we don't have highway troopers up here with wireless interac machines

Have fun with your trip.

I think the Montreal guys should compile a list of what to do and places to see/eat while in Montreal and Quebec City. This question comes up every so often!

Max speed on freeways is 100Km/h (60 m/h) but if you go at that speed my grand-mother will pass you and you will catch a cold. Serious, If you go at
120 km/h (75 m/h) you are safe. Bad timing for a trip to Montreal and Quebec city imo. Winter just finished and we are cleaning things up. Best time would
be in July. In july in Montreal there is sooo much things to do that 1 week would be a minimum.

Go Montreal

Just for laughs festival
Jazz festival
La Ronde - 6 flags
International fireworks competitions (2 times a week)
F1 Grand Prix of Montreal
Beer mondial
Montreal casino

Free shows outside all the time.

Best time for a visit in the province of Quebec is in the summer, winter and the falls (north of Montreal). Spring is here now and they are cleaning things
up atm.

Don't need cash, bank cards and credit cards are enough.

My favorites restaurants in Montreal:

La queue de cheval
40 westt
Wienstein and Gavino's
McDonald's

I mean, Montreal is renowned around the world for their restaurants, you have hundreds of restaurants you can go and be very satisfied. Just in the
Montreal old port you have easily 15 good restaurants.

I know you're coming here in a week but I'm posting this for others that might be looking to go somewhere this summer. Do I like my city or what?

Did I talked about Montreal night live? naw! that's right, you are coming here with your girlfriend.

In Montreal, check out Crescent Street ... but like it was mentioned above, do that some time mid Summer. On Crescent you'll find the nice cars, the beautiful ladies and a few resaurants and pubs/bars.

Thanks for the info. I'm coming this week because it's school vacation week here in NH, so I have a week off from teaching. Plus, my girlfriend and I just need to get out of this area for a while. It's only 200 miles from here to Montreal, and 280 miles from Quebec City back home.

We're staying in B&B's in the old section of each city. Should be nice.
