"Like Europeans, the Quebecois..." Quebec Warnings Or Dangers Tip by noahsdad

Quebec Warnings and Dangers: 24 reviews and 14 photos

Like Europeans, the Quebecois seem not to have heard of non-smoking sections in restaurants. Choose your table carefully. Also--duh--it's cold: once, we visited between Christmas and New Year's at the same time the province was hit with the worst cold snap in 40 years. IT WAS 40 BELOW--where Celsius & Fahrenheit meet, where you have to plug in your car so the oil doesn't congeal, where the air stings. You don't want to wander around the old town when it's 40 below (although we did see a living nativity complete with Mary, Joseph, a baby Jesus, and a donkey, but NO ONE watching them!). By the end of the week, it was in the 20s F, so it felt 'mild'!
