Baie Comeau, Canada
Baie Comeau is located 260 miles north-east of Quebec City in the Côte-Nord region of the province of Quebec, Canada. It is located on the shores of the Saint Lawrence River near the mouth of the Manicouagan River. The Baie-Comeau region's landscape has been shaped by glacial retreats and extraordinary and unusual natural phenomena such as a meteorite, which caused the immense Manicouagan crater. The region's economy is based on mining, lumbering, aluminum production, hydroelectric production and tourism.

St. Lawrence River & Seaway
The river and seaway is a vital hydrographic system of east-central North America. It connects the North River in Minnesota to Lake Superior , eventually leading into the Atlantic Ocean in eastern Canada. This waterway system is a vital geographic and economic importance to the United States and Canada.

Quebec City, Canada
Quebec City is the capital of the Canadian province of Quebec and the second largest city in the province (behind Montreal). Old Town Quebec is the only fortified city in the U.S. or Canada whose walls still exist. The Historic District of Old Quebec was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations in 1985. It is one of the oldest cities in North America.

Quebec City is known for the Château Frontenac, a historic hotel which dominates the city skyline, standing high on a bluff overlooking the mighty St. Lawrence River. Beside the hotel is Dufferin Terrace, a walkway along the edge of the cliff, with beautiful views of the river. The area around Old Quebec, east of the fortification walls, has a distinctly European feel, with stone buildings and winding streets lined with shops and restaurants. Also near the hotel is Notre-Dame de Québec Cathedral, mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Quebec, the first church in the New World to be raised to a basilica. The Dufferin Terrace leads toward the site of the battle in which the British took Quebec from France.

The Upper Town is linked by the "Escalier Casse-Cou" or "neck-breaker" steps,and also by the Funicular, to the Lower Town, where you will find the ancient Notre Dame des Victoires church, the historic Petit Champlain district, the port, and the Museum of Civilization. Tourist attractions located near Quebec City include Montmorency Falls and the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré.
