One popular tourist destination is Old Quebec. This UNESCO World Heritage site allows visitors to explore the old city walls built by the French explorer Samuel de Champlain in 1608. From this walled city one can take strolls along The Plains of Abraham and enjoy breathtaking views of Quebec City from atop Cap Diamant.
Another must-visit destination is Montmorency Falls Park located just outside of Quebec City. Here you can marvel at a magnificent waterfall that is nearly twice as high as Niagara Falls!
Quebec also has a very rich history stemming back to its days as a New France colony from 1608 until 1763 when it became part of British North America following the Seven Years' War. Today, you can explore many monuments and sites throughout Quebec which help tell its important story such as Place-Royale where Samuel de Champlain first established his settlement in 1608 or Fort Chambly which was used by both French and British soldiers during various wars between 1711 and 1814; both are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
