The ten days we spent on Chris’ farm in Regina went by very fast. Too soon, we were hoping on a plane again, this time to my house in Québec. If you’ve never been there, it’s definitely a place to visit. I love this city so much, mostly because of how pretty it is. Between the walls of the Old City, history was made and that’s what I love about this place. Everything around you has been there for centuries already (well, almost everything).
Unfortunately, since we were there at the beginning of the spring, there wasn’t any leaves in the trees. If you go during the summer, Québec is way prettier. And if you can’t get there in the summer, then I’d say go in the winter when the snow makes everything magical.
For a quick city tour, you should start at the Rink Place D’Youville, walk to the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, take the Promenade des Gouverneurs, check out the La Citadelle de Québec and the Plains of Abraham before walking to the Parliament Building and Grande Allée.
There’s also plenty of things to see in the lower part of the city like Marché du Vieux-Port de Québec, the Quartier Petit Champlain and some shopping on Boulevard Charest Est.
Québec is worth the stop, I promise! Most people I meet on the road tell me they loved it and a lot tell me it’s a place they want to visit. Isn’t that great?
