Montmorency Falls is the Quebec City region’s second most-visited tourist site after the Old Quebec. It doesn’t matter what time of the year it is, a visit to the falls and spending a couple of hours checking out the waterfalls, hiking the trails or a morning walk in fresh air is a rewarding experience. While it is a popular spot for families on a picnic to relax and unwind, there are plenty of fun things to do like taking a cable car ride to the top, going on a hike which involves some tricky rock climbing or zip-lining across the falls for the ultimate adrenaline rush.
Old Quebec city is the historic neighbourhood of Quebec, Canada and is located on the banks of St. Lawrence River. This city is the birthplace of French North America and is sometimes referred as Latin Quarter as well. The area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and you won't find such amazing architectural beauty anywhere else. It has a long history of 400 years. It is home to some of Canada's best restaurants, most interesting historical buildings, and friendly and welcoming locals. It has a mostly French-speaking population.
Sometimes the allure of a far flung destination is overpowering. Perhaps it’s the romance of Paris, or walking past grand cathedrals in Rome. Maybe you long for Spanish culture in Valencia, or would like nothing more than raising a stein in a German beer hall. Great European cities captivate a traveler’s imagination. For many of us, however, life and responsibilities have an unfortunate tendency to intrude. The realities of traveling to Europe, dealing with flight tickets, language barriers, unfamiliar customs…it can seem too much. Fortunately there is plenty Old World charm available in North America. We’ve searched the continent for those places you could easily mistake as having been transplanted wholesale. Come along on our journey to the 10 places in North America that feel exactly like Europe.
