Quebec City is located at the mouth of the St. Charles River which flows into the St. Lawrence River. It is not part of the Maritime Provinces but is a starting point for going to the Maritimes.   You can fly there and then take the train to Nova Scotia.   The city was founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain and is the capital of Quebec Province.  Quebec Old City has been designated a historic monument and is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.  French is the main language spoken in the province and Quebec is known as "la Nouvelle France".

Quebec City's most famous landmark is the Fairmont Chateau Frontenac where Steve and Sally stayed.  It was built in 1892 for the Canadian Pacific Railway and dominates the town.

September & October is a good time to go to Quebec to see the fall colors.
