Although Montreal is the largest city in Quebec, Quebec City is the capital of the Quebec province. Quebec’s official language is French, but English is also common as well.
If you’re staying in Quebec City, Old Quebec is a great section of the city to walk around in and explore. You can walk by the St. Lawrence River, see the Chateau Frontenac, and even take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage. While you’re by the river, you can visit the Aquarium du Québec. Visit Montmorency Falls Park to see the impressive Montmorency Falls. You can zip line over them or hike around them.
