Things To Do In Quebec

Known as one of the most European cities in North America, Quebec offers history and culture at every turn. One of the most interesting activities in Quebec is a walk through Old Quebec (also known as Old City). Since Quebec is the only North American city where the original gates, defenses and ramparts were preserved, you'll find excellent examples of a fortified colonial city you won't see elsewhere in North America. Make sure to stop at the Dauphine Redoubt, the Citadel and Chateau Frontenac.

History buffs will be delighted at not only the number of museums in Quebec, but also at their quality. If a museum tour is tops on your list of things to do in Quebec, start at Musee de l'Amerique Francaise – the oldest museum in Canada. It provides a wonderful overview of French culture in North America through artifacts, holographs and more. You'll also want to include a visit Musee du Fort, especially if you're a military battle aficionado. Six of the city's 18th-century battles come to life during a sound and light show. Finally, don't miss the Museum of Fine Arts (Musee National des Beaux-Arts du Quebec). One of the museum's pavilion is a former 19th-century prison, an interesting juxtaposition alongside more than 2,600 pieces of art.

Another of our favorite things to do in Quebec is taking in the city's notable architecture. If you, too, appreciate a city's architectural virtues, make plans to visit Notre-Dame de Quebec Cathedral, the Chateau Frontenac hotel and the Ursuline Monastery. And if you visit during the Winter Carnival Festival, you'll be able to see ice sculptures.

If a trip here sounds cool, fly to Quebec with American Airlines. From skiing and ice skating to cultural tours, you'll find there's something for everyone to do in Quebec, and we look forward to helping you get there.
