Quebec is one of my favorite places in the world. It has an abundance of natural beauty, French language and a simlar cuisine, a rich history and wonderful people. One thing Quebec is NOT is "a slice of Europe next door", as many advertisements in the US claim it to be. In fact, the francophone population was cut off from its old world roots earlier than the 13 British colonies. What you'll see in Quebec is a unique slice of North America that you'll never forget.
Most of this page is focused on our trip to the Gaspe and Quebec City in 2000 and to Tadoussac in 2004. While Quebec is a much bigger province than that small slice, a trip north and east of Quebec City is PLENTY to take in.
Of course, everywhere you'll go you'll see evidence of the province's French heritage. The quebecois are justifiably proud of keeping their culture alive for the 200 years since the Battle of Quebec. But don't be put off by the politics of the currents ebbs and flows of the independence movement. The people of Quebec will welcome you no matter what language you speak.
Despite all the Quebec indepedence hoopla, there are plenty of residents proud of their British past as well. The citedel, in fact, is a well-preserved Bristish fort built to protect Quebec City from the Americans, who attacked it twice (including one losing effort by Benedict Arnold).
