I have never been much of a camper.

As I expressed in this post, my family just didn’t grow up camping. Let alone hang out in a yurt!

Quebec City is currently ranked the no. 1 destination in Canada by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine and the walled city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Treasure.

Getting There – From Toronto there are direct flights on Porter and Air Canada. Otherwise, you can connect from any other city via Montreal. Honda Canada was nice enough to lend us a brand new Honda CRV, so we chose to make a sisters road trip out of it. We left at around 10 AM after the traffic died down and the drive takes about 9 hours. We took our time, made lots of stops along the way including:
