Just walk around and observe the old houses. Like most places we have visited in Canada, streets are very clean.

Place Royale offers a center of activity, entertainment, outdoor cafes, souvenir shops and benches to simple sit and people watch. Live entertainment from street vendors that must audition to earn the privilege.

Nice very old plaza where Champlains home was located. There are shops to purchase nice souvenirs of jade and other Canadian Gem jewelry and a restaurant with outdoor seating. The old Notre Dame de Victoires is located here built in 1688.

Could not enjoy the history with all the hawking and fake French dressed hustlers all around. It is crowded enough with the tourist. Not able to fully appreciate this historic site.

Once you see this square, you will know why it was used for movie sets. Delightful. Nice place to have a drink and people watch. Most "French" place in Old Quebec.

There is no Casino near old Quebec. There is a casino north of downtown but you have to cross the river to get there. It's quite a distance away.

Sorry, I don’t know. I saw a nice cassino in La Malbaie in front of the elegant hotel Manier Richelieu.
