Out and About in Québec
Québec is truly one of the most beautiful cities in North America. See for yourself by beginning your trip at Old Québec—a UNESCO world-heritage site. Walk along the picturesque streets, and take a ride on a horse-drawn carriage; be sure to visit the Citadel—a 300-year-old fortress—while you're in Old Québec. After you've toured the grounds, check out the Citadel's corresponding museum to learn more about Québec's storied past. Be sure to take a stroll through Terrasse Dufferin for the best views of the St. Lawrence River, and afterward, rest and relax by staying at one of the lovely Québec hotels found nearby.
Eating and Drinking
Starting to get hungry? Go to Quartier Petit Champlain. You'll find quaint storefronts, cafes, and bistros in this remarkably beautiful area, with sumptuously cooked duck or rabbit that is sure to delight. Or if you're feeling less adventurous, you can just as easily sample some wines, with a selection of cheeses and cold cuts, at a classic bistro. After you've had your fill of delicious food, stop by Nouvo Saint-Roch—Québec's most cutting-edge neighborhood—to hang out at all the coolest clubs. You'll definitely have a blast. When you're done partying till dawn, head back to your hotel to get some beauty sleep. Hotels in Québec are known for their dedication to comfort.
