Quebec City, Canada for Babies
Know Before You GoPrinter-Friendly Version
- At a Glance
The 400th anniversary celebrations may be over but Canada's birthplace still offers plenty of opportunities for family revelry. History is alive here! Costumed interpreters, street performers, age-old fortresses, castles and acres of green space stoke childrens' imaginations. The city's links to the Acadians who settled this area as well as some portions of the Northeastern United States help bring classroom history lessons to life. Delicious, kid-friendly foods (like poutine and sugar-pie), a multicultural and welcoming atmosphere, and an easygoing French spirit makes vacationing easy, but leaving hard.
