QuČbec

QuČbec, with its distinct French-Canadian or Quebecois culture and strong sense of history, offers a wealth of diversity. MontrČal is home to many excellent festivals and the Notre Dame Basilica. It is a city noted for its nightlife, food and museums.
When in Quebec City, the oldest fortified city in North America, be sure to visit the historic battlements on the Plains of Abraham, and the beautiful Chateau Frontenac. The Laurentian Mountains offer a variety of adventures - especially for winter sports. The Saguenay Region is great for whale watching. Or, visit the spectacular Gaspe Peninsula in the South St Lawrence area. Tour the lakes, heritage homes and vineyards of the Eastern Townships.

Mont-Tremblant Park offers kilometres of Laurentian forests and lakes for camping, canoeing and fishing. Explore the 100-kilometre-long Saguenay Fjord, a natural phenomenon with steep, glacial mountains dropping to the river's edge. Six species of whales live here.

Surrounded by water and brightened by 650 parks and green spaces, MontrČal's island city is many cities in one. The second largest French-speaking city in the world, MontrČal is a great combination of old world charm and big city excitement. Explore one of the city's many quartiers; the artistic Plateau MontrČal, and the Latin Quarter with its colorful wall murals, mansard roofs, spiraling stairs and outdoor cafes; the multi-ethnic Main, Chinatown with its pagodas and apothecaries, Little Italy with its markets and cappucino shops. Take a ride in a horse drawn sleigh, or spend an afternoon exploring the city's chic boutiques and bistros. Ride the mČtro, drop by the Insectarium for a look at rare insects from more than 100 countries, or visit the island playground of Parc des Œles with its beach, cycling paths and outdoor skating rink.

QuČbec City is a charming and historic city with a distinctly European cachet. The turrets and towers of the Chateau Frontenac dominate the skyline. Narrow streets climb steeply down to the Lower Town and restaurants are tucked into homes dating from the 18th and 19th centuries. Today, QuČbec's old storied city of citadel, stone walls and ramparts is the only fortified city north of Mexico, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take an exhilarating stroll along the Dufferin Terrace overlooking the Lower Town and the watery blue horizon of the St. Lawrence River. Visit the fascinating MusČe du QuČbec. Situated on the historic Plains of Abraham, it features an extensive collection of QuČbec art from the early years to the modern day.

Located in the heart of downtown Ottawa, along the scenic Rideau Canal, Canada's Parliament Buildings are more than a workplace for the nation's elected officials. The buildings, which dominate Parliament Hill and the Ottawa skyline, are an historical monument, an architectural treasure, and a symbol of Canadian democracy. The original Parliament Buildings - aside from the Library and the southeast foundation - were destroyed by fire in 1916, and then rebuilt.

The centerpiece of the Parliament Buildings is the Peace Tower, which stands 92.2 meters (302 feet) in height. Its carillon of 52 bells chimes the hour throughout the day and night. A tour of Parliament Hill includes a trip up the Tower, from which you'll have a panoramic view of the entire Ottawa Valley, from the fascinating heritage architecture of the downtown core to the gently rolling Gatineau Hills. You'll also have a chance to see the Senate and the House of Commons, where legislation is debated and passed, and wander the ornate halls of Parliament. The best of Canadian architecture and workmanship is on display in the stone carvings, soaring pillars and columns, and beautiful woodwork. And be sure to toss a coin in the Centennial Flame Fountain, where fire dances on water through summer and winter. The Parliament Buildings are the center of Canada's political scene and a fascinating heritage site.
