Quebec City

A European Atmosphere is present in Quebec as the area is still heavily influenced by its French routes. The cobbled streets are reminiscent of the 17th and 18th century, when the city was becoming what it is today. The cuisine is world class and the café culture of the city is very metropolitan and friendly, meaning you can experience some unique culture whilst in North America.
