If you want a honeymoon with some of the flavor of visiting France right here on this continent, look north to the charm of Quebec City. Picturesque Old Quebec is the only walled city in the Western Hemisphere north of Mexico. The city’s Fairmont Le Château Frontenac (pictured, above) may be the honeymoon castle for you and your Prince Charming as it has welcomed kings, queens, presidents, celebrities,and diplomats for more than a century. Film buffs may also recognize the castle as the set of Alfred Hitchcock’s movie, I Confess, starring Montgomery Clift. Lovers in Quebec can enjoy horse-drawn carriages, step back in time to New France via the Place-Royale, and enjoy views of the St. Lawrence River from the Old Port. Parts of the old town are often closed to traffic, so you can take in local shops and landmark spots while strolling arm and arm without sidestepping a single auto. quebecregion.com
