I kicked off my East Coast Adventure to Quebec City one of North America’s French speaking city with nearly 95% of the residents are native French speakers and where French culture thrives. The city has long and rich history, colorful culture, interesting language, amazing architecture and friendly, classy and fashionable people.

Check out these places I visited during my trip.

I would really suggest taking this hop on hop off bus tour for $41.00 good for one day to see the best of what Quebec City has to offer.

Rue Saint-Paul

Montreal’s oldest street and was named after Montreal’s first governor, Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve. This street has wide array of antique, local shops and restaurants paved with cobblestones in many parts and stacked with buildings whose exteriors have been around for hundreds of years.

Petit Champlain

Still part of Old Quebec but on the lower part of it. It is the oldest commercial district in North America. Named after Samuel de Champlain, commercial district who founded Quebec City in 1608. This is the one of the picturesque pedestrian  streets in the world.

It hs been a great experience to be in Quebec City. It was like being in a different country as you get to feel strong French culture everywhere. It makes me also want to learn the language as I find it sound romantic and sexy, staying in Quebec for few days I have been in love with Francophone music as well even if I don’t understand the lyrics it is just sweet music to my ear. In this historic city I’ve noticed that life is more keep it easy feel and everyone dress so classy without even looking that they are trying hard to be fashionable and classy.

I will look forward to visiting you again soon Quebec and maybe I will come back and I’ll find the love of my life in the most romantic city in Canada!
