I would appreciate hearing from people who have recently traveled to Canada. I've heard so much about Quebec City that I wanted to camp there in our travel trailer and see the city, however when I looked up the only campground in the city there was a comment that we should not go if we are English speaking only. One needs to speak French. I did not see any warnings about Montreal. Advice on this issue would be appreciated.

We live in Ontario and travel quite frequently in Quebec. Quebec City is the most beautiful city in the world, so don't let the language stop you. We stayed at Valcartier Park, which is about 1/2 hour outside of Quebec City. Downtown is gorgeous. Cochon Dingue is a funky little restaurant downtown. The Valcartier waterpark is large, clean and great for kids. Quebec City is very French, but in the restaurants and campgrounds, they will try to speak English. Tourism is important to both these cities.

We also stayed at the KOA south, just outside of Montreal. It isn't too fancy, but you can get into downtown Montreal in 15 minutes which is a huge bonus. Old Montreal is incredible in the summer on the weekends, with buskers and overflowing patios. The biodome is great for kids, there is La Ronde, an amusement park. Just the atmosphere of downtown is great, and most people in Montreal and tourism there, will speak English. They appreciate if you try to order something in French, even if you butcher the language, it is fun to try.

Have fun, you will love these cities!
