....a special road trip section....
Join us on a road trip thru the historic Châteauguay Valley !
This road trip is fantastic.
Plan for a full day of about 8 hours for driving, stopping, taking pictures, restaurants, old churches, scenic roadways, cows, apple orchards, charming little towns, more pictures and the Battle of Châteauguay Museum.
***always make sure you fill up with gas whenever possible and check your cell phone stays charged, as you may find yourself exploring back roads off the beaten track***
