Logo   Excursion to Québec, Canada
The wonderful foreign cities and towns of Québec, Canada are only a few hours' drive from the borders of New England USA, and well worth the excursion.

Winter Sports

Skiers and snowboarders, in particular, will find lots of wonderful opportunities. This is a place where they really know how to enjoy winter! More...

Vive la Différence!

You'll notice lots of things that are similar in the USA and Canada, but also lots of things that are different. Vive la différence!
