Fodor's Review

This park, named after Abraham Martin, who used the plains as a pasture for his cows, is the site of the famous 1759 battle that decided New France's fate. People cross-country ski here in winter and in-line skate in summer. At the Museum of the Plains of Abraham, check out the multimedia display, which depicts 400 years of Canada's history.
