Best Things to Do in Quebec City
If you're mesmerized by towering fortresses and lavish castles, you'll be more than satisfied just wandering the ancient cobblestone streets of Old Québec. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is the only walled city north of Mexico. Inside its fortifications, charming cafés and antiques shops rub elbows with historic attractions like the Citadel and the Notre-Dame Basilica. When history starts to repeat itself and all the sights start to blend together, take in a breath of fresh air at Battlefields Park or Montmorency Falls. You can also combine history and nature with a walk along the scenic Terrasse Dufferin, where your stroll will be supplemented with fantastic city views.
