What if Quebec was the best part of Canada? A completely legitimate question as this province seems perfect on many points.

For others, you can settle for places in France that look like Canada. Quebec and its lively and welcoming cities is paradise.

UNESCO was not mistaken there. And then people. They are cool people in Quebec!

Not forgetting the Charlevoix crater…
