No joke. Quebec City might be the most romantic, cool, gorgeous town in all of North America. Its old town Paris in Canada.

I haven't been to Quebec but haven't heard anything good about DC (how sad is that?!) and have never heard anything bad about Quebec!

Quebec City easily, it's got more of the climate I like (130+ inches of snow a year, beautiful falls and springs, nice, warm summer )....and seems a lot more classy (I've been to both DC and Quebec City). Plus I can go to Quebec City in July and not become part of the sidewalk

Definitely Quebec City! Gorgeous architecture and a European feel. A Very unique city.

I love DC, but there is no comparison with Quebec city. Quebec city is clean, safe, and absolutely gorgeous. The people are super friendly, too, particularly when they find out you're American and not an Anglophone Canadian.

Here are some pics of Quebec city and its suburbs I found at Google Images:

I think I agree with Billiam. I LOVE LOVE Quebec. It's such a cool place to visit, but for day to day life it's a bit too small for my taste. I'd prefer to live in Montreal

Visit? QC
Live? DC

Great pics, JMT!
