Visiting the Province of Quebec? Find best campgrounds and RV parks to explore the nature of the Belle Province and its charming cosmopolitan cities – Montreal and Quebec City
Québec is located in east-central Canada.
It is the only Canadian province that has French as its sole provincial official language.
Quebec is Canada's largest province by area and the second most populous after Ontario.
Lovers of nature will find several places to visit including the area of Gaspé with its Forillon National Park, beautiful forests, sea coast, salt marshes, sand dunes and mountains.
Being there consider stopping at Tadoussac to see the picturesque Saguenay fjord and National Marine Park. That is also the gateway for whales watching on the Saint Lawrence River.
The Mauricie National Park and the Mingan Archipelago Reserve are two other examples of the stunningly beautiful nature in Quebec.
Let's start with Quebec's scenery created by nature
Two biggest cities of the province – Montreal and the capital - Quebec City will also charm visitors. Some of the must see sights in the city of Quebec are the Old Québec Dufferin Terrace, Place-Royale Petit-Champlain District, Parliament Hill, Île d'Orléans, l’Hotel Frontenac, nearby Plains of Abraham.
Not far from the capital city you may visit Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré with its Shrine, impressive Montmorency Falls, Mt Sainte Anne….
Montreal on its own has plenty to offer to even most demanding tourists. Old town near Place St Jacques and Old Port, Olympic Park with Biôdome, Botanic Garden, skyscrapers and one of the largest underground cities hidden below the surface. Kids and teenagers will find best time in La Ronde Amusement Park. But Montreal is all about festivities – with International Jazz Festival, Benson and Hedges Festival (fireworks synchronized with music), Festival of World’s Theatre and Cinema to name only few. The bottom line – the old town streets never go to sleep!
Those in need of adrenaline may target Montreal during the Formula 1 car racing (the only one in North America).
