    My wife and I are heading up to Quebec city for a weekend for her birthday (she's been wanting to go there for a while!)
    For those familiar with it, what would you recommend? Sights to see, places to eat, spots to avoid, historical areas to check out, etc?

    If you're driving, stop by Sunapee in New Hampshire and say hello.

    It's one of the oldest settlements in North America. The ramparts around the Old City are the only fortified city walls north of Mexico. I'd love to visit there. Actually, the name 'Canada' is in reference to Quebec city.


    I'm sure if you threw a stick down a road, it'd probably land on some chunk of North American history. But yeah...Get a poutine.

    I was going to say "the girls" but now I see you're going with your wife... :D

    Just walk around the old city and be sure to stay in an auberge rather than in a big hotel (much more charming and usually cheaper).

    I don't think I've ever heard a French Quebecker say "ze". That's more of a European thing.
     
  17. You should be excited to see Canadians in their natural habitat.

  20. Putan, with a short u and a long a. That is, if you want to say it like the locals. In English speaking Canada it is Pooteen.
