Travel Tip: Quebec City
I recently traveled with my family to the capital of the Quebec province and found that it lives up to its reputation as the crown jewel of French Canada. Quebec City is one of the oldest European settlements in North America and indeed it has that European flare. The city is very walkable and safe. While there, my family and I took a biking tour in which we were able to enjoy beautiful views of both the St. Lawrence River and the city. And we drove about a half hour or so outside the city to Montmorency Falls where the views were outstanding. Some of the most popular landmarks in Quebec City include the Chateau Frontenac, a hotel, and La Citadelle – a fortress that surrounds the old city. There are also a few very nice museums within the city – the museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Civilization, to name a couple. We certainly enjoyed the food in Quebec City as well as the architecture. With its European feel and proximity to our region, it’s a very interesting place to visit.
