"One of North America's Best Tastes of Europe" Quebec by Paul2001

Quebec Travel Guide: 1,576 reviews and 3,492 photos

Quebec City is one of the oldest cities in North America and few walled cities in the Western Hemisphere. I visited on the 400 year anniversary of this special city and was extremely impressed. I had not been to Quebec City for over 30 years and my last trip was all too short. This time I decided to take some time to get to know the city. I found that it was full of charm with it array of 18th century buildings and historical legacy.
I did have a few problems with the town however. It is more expensive than most Canadian cities and boy was it crowded. Still it was worth the visit. More importantly for some is the fact that Quebec looks so much like European town. This is obviously if you do not have the time or money to afford a trip to Europe and want to get a taste of what it is like, then you should consider a visit. I am sure you will find it rewarding.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Very Good Museums, Lovely Architecture.
  • Cons:Some of the locals are not friendly, Crowded, Expensive by Canadian standards
  • In a nutshell:The Most European of North American Cities

    Hi Paul, nice to see you online. I never realized that Quebec City is the only remaining fortified city in North America.

    A nice page. The Artillery Museum looks very interesting, nice to see how things were done of old, and the walls does remind you of Europe. Nice photos!
