It was my third visit to Quebec City, but my first in more than 30 years! While I am astounded at the city's ability to maintain its culture and architecture, I'm also nervous about the extent of tourism.
I should couch this by saying that I did visit in July, and that besides good weather, it's the time of Quebec's well-known "Summer Festival" of music. In addition to the large number of visitors (4.7 million in 2012), I also don't recall seeing so many tour buses, tour groups, shops and restaurants in old town. Yes, I know, it's been decades!
I haven't actually touched upon every stop I made, but the photos will hopefully take you there!
