Perched atop the rocky Cap Diamant (Cape Diamond) and overlooking the St. Lawrence River, Québec City offers families a distinctly different vacation experience. This provincial capital is the only fortified city north of Mexico. From the seventeenth through the nineteenth centuries, Québec was vital in the ultimate defense of all of northeastern America. The historic district, Old Québec (Vieux Québec), has been proclaimed a “world heritage treasure” by UNESCO. The French influence dominates in culture, cuisine, and language; at least 95 percent of the population is French-speaking. It helps to speak the language, although it’s possible to get by without it. Just minutes from the city, your family will find outdoor activities in stunning natural settings. 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.
