If there was a place you could experience Europe without the hassle of traveling overseas, Old Quebec City would be your answer. With its narrow streets and historic architecture, you'll feel like you're walking around in old Europe. Bring along your French vocabulary book- you may need it! The shops and cafés are fantastic. Many wonderful historic hotels as well. Try the Hotel Clarendon. It's the oldest in continuous operation- you won't be disappointed. Just three hours away is Tadoussac, the oldest French establishment in North America where you can embark on a great whale watching tour in the St. Lawrence.
