The 87th National Convention is being held in Qu├®bec, the unique walled city on the St. Lawrence River. No other destination in the world offers Qu├®bec’s compelling mix of features and attractions. The very heart of the Qu├®bec City region is the St. Lawrence River, which arrives in a flourish from Montr├®al, squeezes through the Qu├®bec-L├®vis narrows under the cliffs of Upper Town, then rushes on to the Atlantic in a widening expanse of water and nature. This unique combination of geography adds to the region’s scenic appeal. The city itself also abounds in attractions. Historic Old Qu├®bec is the best known of all. This lively walled part of the city, with its winding streets and quaint town squares, traces its roots nearly 400 years back to the founding of the city in 1608, and is the cradle of French civilization in America.
