Summer is the perfect time to visit Quebec City, a UNESCO World Heritage site, which is the only walled city in North America north of Mexico. In addition to all the history, dining, and ambiance the visitor will enjoy any time of the year, summer (July) brings the renowned Quebec City Summer Festival, the largest artistic event in Canada. A short drive from the city center will bring you to many attractions along the St. Lawrence river, such as the Montmorency Falls, the bucolic Île d'Orléans, and the 17th Century King's Road, which leads past historic homes and chapels of that era. Pay a visit to the majestic Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, the second oldest pilgrimage site in North America.
