At more than four hundred years old, Quebec City is one of the oldest cities in North America. It is also the only city in North America that surrounded by a fortified wall (developed by the French to prevent British invasion). After being captured by the British in the battle along the Plains of Abraham, which you can go visit and walk around today, the city was fortified even further with the building of a citadel. You can go and visit the citadel for a charge and a tour guide will give you all of the information about the wars, buildings, and the history of the French Canadian military regiment that still uses the citadel as one of its bases today. You can also observe the changing of the guard ceremony every morning with your entrance ticket.

Walking alone through the stone cobbled streets of Quebec City is beautiful and an attraction unto itself. Most of the buildings here -- including Chateau Frontenac, Canada's most famous castle and hotel -- are incredibly old and have amazing architecture. The Notre Dame Basilica is also impressive, with tours through the crypt under the church on request for a small fee. It is home to some of the most pivotal players in the founding of Quebec and the church, including Laval himself.

The city has an amazing vibe to it and there is an abundance of free shows and festivals that occur throughout the summer and winter months. It is a good idea to check these things out before you get there to avoid missing out with accommodation.

Hostels in Quebec City are mostly located throughout the downtown center and within walking distance of all of the attractions. There are an abundance of restaurants to eat at within the downtown core, but you can also find supermarkets close by for purchasing your own food. Ask at your accommodation for the closest place.
