We’ve all made one: a list of must-visit spots before we die.
Fiji, New Zealand and Cuba (we can dream, right?) are faves. Even Quebec City.
Friends just returned from a 10-day blitz, where they nibbled on poutine (cheese curds, just in case you’re not familiar) and meandered along cobblestone streets. “It was like being in Europe,” they said.
A chic city with a French accent across the border? We’re sold.
Couples, take that honeymoon or needed getaway to Quebec City vacation rentals, which range from chic apartments (click photo) to full-on chalets. The featured property caters to urbanites who appreciate the value of antiquity (St. Roch is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city and a hotbed for restaurants, shopping and museums), but prefer to live in contemporary environs.
Check out that gleaming galley kitchen, which beams with its shiny wood cabinets and stainless steel appliances. The 1,800-square-foot space is “open-house ready,” banishing clutter for neat lines, candles and linens in bold colors. Plus, that view of Uptown from the living room simply stuns.
What say you, readers? What destinations are on your bucket list?

Where should we go with a party of six?" No stranger to travel--and traveling with kids--she is a young mom who ODs on the Internet when it comes to planning family trips or buying clothes. Here's hoping she finds you the vacation you deserve.
