Travelling between Toronto towards Montreal and hopefully Quebec (if have time) by car for 9 days in September. Any must sees/must dos on or off the beaten track? Any accommodation recommendations? Any help would be appreciated!!
consider joining couchsurfers, I always find when you are in a place for a shorter amount of time you get stuck with the commercial/touristy things and places.
That way someone who lives in Montreal/Quebec can show you the ropes.
The streets I liked best in Montreal were St Laurent and St Denis lots of cool cafes, bars and vintage shops or boutiques.
Make sure you go to Juliette en chocolate
Best hot chocolate I ever had.

I just stayed at the Jail hostel in Ottawa which was a cool experience - definitely recommend it. Also heard of an aerial park in Gatineau (short drive from Ottawa) where you do this cool adventure course in trees, zip-lining etc. I didn't end up going to it but will on my way back there in mid-Sept. The website is campfortune.com
For Montreal, I agree with Roxy: St Denis & St Laurent in the Plateau are the best streets. Also nearby is the reknowned poutine place called La Banquise. Went to a cool bar/pub last night off St Laurent called Dieu du Ciel where they brew their own beer. Try the Hibiscus one!
There's a sweet restaurant called O Noir in Montreal where you dine in pitch darkness. The waiters are blind as well, and if you go on a Sunday there's a live band (also blind). almost 8 years ago
