I have a job offer to work in Quebec city downtown. I've never been to quebec city but I have been to montreal and surrounding areas.
Apparently it's one of the lowest cost of living cities in Canada. Aside from that, I was wondering what your personal opinion is of the city. I hear it gets a lot colder than Toronto, but I'll be living very close to work and plus they pay for transportation.
Is there a lot to do in the city? Aside from the language, people, and architecture, how is it different than Toronto? How is the social life, night life, and general retailers? Do they have american retailers like BestBuy and Famous Players (are movies in french only?) or are they completely detached? How are restaurants there and the food? I assume it's not as diverse as Toronto. Are people laid back or always in a hurry (business mentality)?
edit: Just checked, they don't have a best buy in quebec city :X nearest is laval, not that it matters.
