Discover hotels near Chicago for weekend escapes in Canada
Canada’s predominantly French-speaking province, Québec is home to metropolis Montréal, riverside Québec City – with its fortified colonial core, Place Royale, and nightlife-loving historic harbor, Vieux Port – and a handful of rustic settlements in the east. Outdoor enthusiasts can explore the rugged coastline of the Gaspé Peninsula, marvel at the vast open sky over the taiga and tundra, and zip down snow-covered slopes near the province’s sister cities. Hungry? This part of the world is famous for its poutine, molasses-based St Catherine’s taffy and maple desserts (Québec produces almost three quarters of the world’s favourite pancake topping). Work up an appetite exploring, then treat yourself to some of the sweet stuff.
