Local Area Attractions
Is the heart of French Canada. Nowhere else in North America is the appearance and atmosphere of an old-world city so complete. Québec City looks and feels very European; perhaps that is why the entire old section of the town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985. http://www.quebecregion.com/en/quebec_city_and_area/old-quebec?a=med
Parc de la Chute-Montmorency is a few minutes from Québec City. Located between the river and the cliffs, it's one of the province's most spectacular sites. Montmorency Falls (83 m) dominates the landscape. http://www.sepaq.com/ct/pcm/index.dot?language_id=1
