Quebec City is one of the most beautiful and historically significant cities in North America. The walled city is the only one north of Mexico City to have preserved its fortified colonial architecture. The cobblestone streets, old-world charm and European feel make Quebec City a popular tourist destination. The city is also home to several world-class museums, including the Musée de la civilisation and the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec. There are also plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy in Quebec City, including hiking, biking and skiing in the nearby mountains.
