Which day trip from Montreal or Ottawa?

I'm driving with 2 kids (18 and 14 y old), in June, from Toronto to Montreal. We are planning on stops to see Niagara Falls and Lake, Kingston and 1000 islands, Ottawa and Quebec City. Other suggestions?

I read very interesting things about stops /day trips such as Montebello and Parc Omega, Mont Tremblant,Tadoussac, and Montmorency Falls Park. Any suggestions or advice on how to choose among these, in the summer, with teenagers? We love outdoors - also options such as renting bikes, segway tours, whale watching would be very nice (if this is a time of year for that). Thanks!

Welcome to TripAdvisor, waterlily2014;

It would be helpful to those who can be of assistance, if you provided some additional information.

How many days are you planning for this trip ?

Is this a one-way drive, or a round trip ?

How long (hours or Kilometres) do you wish to drive each day ?

How often do you wish to move from one stop to another ?

The more information you provide the more detailed replies you will receive.

Best Regards

Montreal

Tadoussac is not exactly a day trip! It is 6 hours of diving non-stop from Montréal.

Our plan is to drive from Toronto to Montreal - one way - from Montreal either fly back to Brazil or a couple of days in Vermont.

We have approximately 2 weeks in Canada - initial idea is 3 days in Toronto/ Niagara; drive to Kingston - spend 1 day, drive to Ottawa - spend 1 day, drive to Quebec City (perhaps one day in Montebello on the way to Quebec City) then a day in Quebec City, then 3 days in Montreal. Not sure if we should spend longer in any of the places mentioned or perhaps drive to the other places I had mentioned.

Thanks!
