A quick stop in Quebec City was such a great idea. This city has so much to offer in terms of breathtaking views. I only heard of this place from family and friends but little did I know that I would instantly fall in love with it! Quebec is a beautiful city full of old french architecture and I felt like I had stepped into a town in Italy or France. I was really worried about not being able to speak french but most tourist sites have people who speak English as well.
There is so much to see in Quebec City so if you end up going there and falling in love, just remember that if you live there, you get paid to learn how to speak French. Here is a link for more information on how to get paid to learn French in Quebec.
I spent one full day in Quebec City and I will definitely be going back to do some more exploring there 🙂
Here are some of the pictures that I took while there:
To do list of course!
You must check out Montmorency Falls in Quebec. This was a spectacular view and such an exhilerating experience. These falls are 83 meters high. There are staircases that allow visitors to view the falls from several different angles. Once you reach the bottom, I dare you to look up and see the number of stairs you just climbed down! It is an absolutely amazing experience.
Beautiful street art.
One of my favourite things to do is to just wander the streets of an unfamiliar city or town. This wandering the streets lasted pretty much half of the time spent in Quebec City.
I loved these moments.
Witnessed a photo shoot and then decided I wanted my very own photo shoot:
Make sure to visit Le Chateau Frontenac Hotel in old Quebec. It is a luxurious hotel as well as a historic site. It is perched atop a tall cape overlooking the St. Lawrence River. This is known as the most photographed hotel in the world. Best of all, there is a cafe Starbucks there 🙂
Make sure to visit the Plains of Abraham. This is a historic area within the Battlefields Park in Quebec. The land is the site of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, which took place in 1759.
Going home, see you in the winter time Quebec!
