One of North America’s Oldest Cities – Quebec City

Quebec City
Quebec City today is one of the most European feeling cities in North America, with its beautiful Château Frontenac hotel, French influences on architecture, and fortified city walls. Located on the St. Lawrence River, Quebec is northeast of Montreal, and north of New Hampshire and Maine. Settled in 1608, Quebec City is one of North America’s oldest cities — only a handful of other North American settlements outdate the Canadian city.

Lensmaster Squidster has created an excellent resource on her lens, Quebec City Today. The lens features a list of fun things to do in the city, links and live feeds from web cams in Quebec, videos, and reviews.
