"Au Petit Coin Breton" offers the best crêpes this side of the Atlantic. If I did not know a was in North America I would have sworn I was in Saint Malo, France while I was eating these delectable delights. Great béchamel sauce, excellent service. Oh Là là.

Going by foot and taking your time will help you avoid the crowds. There are also many small buses in the old part of town which will take you to all the main parts.

Our worry about not knowing enough French was needless. As soon as we said "Bon jour" they could tell we didn't really speak French, and happily spoke to us in English. However, we continued to sprinkle our conversation with Merci, and S'il vous plais...and they either appreciated it...or were amused by it...but it brought plenty of smiles!

We enjoy exercise and we walked everywhere...so if you stay in the Old-Town area, everything is within reasonable walking distance.

We had heard of the "Elf on a Shelf", but in Quebec they have something called the "Elf Lutin" which is a little bit different (they are bigger, and come in many different costumes)...and irresistibly cute. We each bought one to take home. There are Canada and Quebec products that are unique, and also boutiques and department stores. Plenty of choices for fun and different Christmas gifts!

Quebec attracts an array of people, and therefore an array of cuisine. Within walking distance from the Chateau there are dozens of high quality restaurants. Quebec also has a rich domestic history of comfort foods and fine dining, a rare mix. The wait staff at restaurants was also particularly well versed.

Take a walk around old Quebec. It has a unique feel that blends together French culture and Canadian pride. It is unlike any place in North America, but will remind the seasoned traveler of it's original patron-country, France.

There is hardly a place in the city that would not be a nice place to stop for a kiss. The views are excellent. If you have the money a carriage ride will blow your mind. Picnic in the park? Possibilities are endless.

Old Quebec at it's core is a culturally rich city, and therefore interesting for people of all ages. Whether it be the history behind the culture, or the general new experience for the children. The friendly populace also makes it a safer than usual place.

Au Petit Coin Breton. I studied in Rennes France and traveled frequently to Saint Malo... where I had the best crêpes in the world. Until I have the time and money to return to France I will be going often to Quebec..and to my favorite restaurant.

Quebec, while not renowned for it's museums, seems to have them in abundance. The museums often get exhibit loans, which allows you to see pieces from all over the world. (I saw a full exhibit on Greco-Roman sculptures no more than a 10 minute walk from my hotel).
