If you can't afford to travel to Paris, Quebec City is a pretty fair trade. If you do get the chance to go to Paris, though--GO TO PARIS.
Anyway, I spent the August long weekend in Quebec City, walking about five hours a day, eating lots of cheese, drinking more wine, taking insane amounts of pictures (because it's just THAT beautiful), and even going on a ghost tour to check out some of the execution, murder, and haunting sites. Pretty cool stuff. Here are some of my fave pics from my trip.
