Spend a weekend skiing and dining in and around "le petit" Paris. No plane ticket required.
Few places in North America evoke Europe as authentically as Quebec City. Founded in 1608 by French explorer Samuel de Champlain, this 400-year-old walled city is France without jetlag, Europe without the euro. Cheek-by-jowl stone buildings line narrow streets. Horse-drawn carriages clip-clop along. Street entertainers jockey for attention.
In French, it means "shelter from the storm." And cozy indeed is the sanctuary provided by 2-foot-thick limestone walls, a massive fireplace and the four-poster beds swaddled with fluffy duvet comforters.
