One of the oldest European cities in North America, Quebec City encompasses the "Historic District of Old Québec”, declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site which presents travelers with an older world charm. The city has been beautifully embedded with its history, displaying an extensive French influence, with the smell of fresh-baked bread, the taste of creamy cafe lattes, and buttery croissants pleasing the senses without fail. The bustling streets during the winter carnival are a witness of the city’s popularity as a tourist destination. The well-known sites of Quebec City, especially in the neighborhood of Old Quebec, can be traveled on foot in order to save money on transport, hence leaving travelers with more bucks to spend on souvenirs to capture memories for a lifetime!
RTC, Funicular, Taxis and Bikes. On passing through the walls of Old Quebec, nearly everything you wish to see or do is in walking distance. But if the weather's too chilly or you're tired, the city's RTC (or Réseau de Transport de la Capitale) Métrobus shuttles visitors around the historic area with six different routes. Or you could consider a ride on the funicular, a steeply sloping railway connecting Haute-Ville (Upper Town) and Basse-Ville (Lower Town). If you plan on taking a day trip or two, you can rent a car in town or at the Jean Lesage International Airport. Another option for exploring is by bike. Bike paths start from the Old Port area, travel along the river and out to the suburbs.

Bus (Metrobus): There are six bus routes that offer transport throughout Old Québec, stopping near many of the neighborhoods' most popular attractions. A single ride general ticket costs only CA$3 or CA$3.50 (about US$2.75) if you pay in cash. Discounted fares are available for children, teens, students, and seniors. Unlimited weekend passes, one-day passes and five-day passes (Monday through Friday) are also available.
Taxis: Taxis are plentiful in Québec City. While you can get them on the street, you may have better luck catching one if you approach a designated cab stand, which you'll find near all the major attractions. The meter starts at around CA$3.45, and each extra kilometer (approximately 0.6 miles) costs CA$1.70
Funicular: This cliff-side elevator travels 210 feet at a 45-degree angle between Basse-Ville to Haute-Ville. The funicular opens every day at 7:30 a.m., but the closing time varies between 11 p.m. and midnight depending on the season. Rides cost CA$3 (about $2.40) per person.

Though Quebec City may not seem like much of a party place given its historical importance and European architecture around the city which gives out a vintage feel, there are more than enough fun and happening activities to occupy the travelers’ nights. If you don't have a story about partying in Quebec City that makes a tale from a weekend in Vegas pale in comparison, then you're missing out. From dance-oriented nightclubs like the Maurice Nightclub in a gutted Victorian-style mansion to Le Dagobert, which offers almost every genre of music, booths that surround big dance floors, lasers, and a huge sound system! Sounds like a fun package, right? In addition to regular bars and nightclubs, boîtes à chansons (“boxes with songs”) are small clubs that feature casual evenings of music. They’re a regional specialty. These places promise a stellar experience and a taste of the city’s nightlife that you just can't miss!
