Old Quebec, its labyrinthian streets beckoning behind mammoth stone walls, is one of our favorite places in the world. No other location in North American reminds us so much of Europe. The French language, omnipresent floral displays (perhaps not in winter!), parks, cuisine, and culture always strike us as unique and enchanting.

A view of the St. Lawrence

The huge city walls, declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site, are the only such fortifications which remain in North America.

The Chateau Frontenac, said to be the most photographed location in North America, gracefully looms over the city and the adjacent boardwalk offers stellar views of the beautiful St. Lawrence river.

Founded by Samuel de Champlain in 1608, Quebec is one of the oldest cities in North America. The 'upper town' is connected to 'lower town' by a convenient funicular and a variety of restaurants and independent shops line every cobbled street.
