Expected beautiful villages and cool shops and restaurants. It was somewhat quaint but bit much stopping for shopping or food.

Yes, there are a couple of pleasant stretches along the Chemin du Roy between Montreal and Quebec, but most of it was really disappointing (tacky strip malls with at least one adult-type place). I wouldn’t recommend going out of your way to travel on it...More

From Quebec City to Montreal, this ride is a mixed bag. To Tre Riveres, farmland and small towns, the views were farmland, river and small towns. Traffic on the freeway from Tres Riveres into Montreal can be a mess. Catch the freeway at Tres Riveres....More

The road (Quebec 138, runs right along the shore after you are out of the Montreal area) seems like any good blacktopped state road in the US - I don't think it should be a problem.
