Quebec City, Quebec Professional Review and Guide
"Perched atop the rocky Cap Diamant (Cape Diamond) and overlooking the St. Lawrence River, Québec City offers families a distinctly different vacation experience.

This eTrail is one complete vacation written with families in mind. It’s loaded with exciting things to do, family-friendly places to lodge and dine, recommended side trips, local sources of information, and detailed travel directions."
