Southwestern Quebec

article - Southwestern Quebec

Southwestern Quebec is a region in Quebec. The culturally rich and lively city of Montreal is the focal point of the region. North of the city and the St. Lawrence River lies the Laurentian Mountains, a popular recreation area, especially for skiing. South of the city and the St. Lawrence River are many small towns, farms, lakes and hills. Parts of this area were settled by Loyalists from the American Revolution giving the area a bit of a New England feel.
