Québec City is definitely Canada’s most historical city, beautifully located on the banks of the St. Laurence River.
The city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only walled city in North America. It is also very French in its feel and the vast majority of the population are French-Speaking. Québec is the centre of Government, with a strong religious feel to the city as well. Quebec is also a great city to do some shopping and try tasty traditional food.Any time of year is good for a visit. Summer draws the mother load of tourists. The crowds create fascinating street life and a buzz wherever you go. And in turn, the city really pulls out the red carpet for visitors: everyone from musicians to acrobats to actors in period costume take to the streets. There's also terrific festivals and oodles of special museum exhibitions and tours. Fall and spring bring beautiful colors, dramatically reduced prices and thinner crowds. And in the winter, Caribou, an alcoholic drink enjoyed by the early settlers, is sold everywhere to keep people warmed up. Even in the darkest and coldest months of January and February, Quebecers have found a way to have fun: throwing the annual Winter Carnival, arguably the biggest, most colorful and most successful winter festival around.
