Our Trip to Quebec City took longer than expected as I mentioned in my last blog post it took us 13 hours instead 8 hours. I don’t know how we survived the snow storm but one thing is for sure, Buick Enclave got us to Quebec safe and well entertained. we did use the built-in wifi that comes with the car. We also had the most amazingly comfortable ride. Choco even fell asleep the whole time.
Quebec City is such a picturesque city to not to visit during winter months, even though it was really cold, the pretty architecture will make up for it. I listed a few of the places I went to and would recommend for you to check out when you’re there
- Le Château Frontenac Fairmont – The Hotel itself is a known trademark of the Old Quebec city, here you can stay, play and eat. Staying here was a dream come true and we were able to bring my dog Choco without worrying about him being a dog. It also has 2 beautiful restaurants inside ( Bistro Le Sam which is more trendy and fun, you can check out Champlain restaurant if you want to go for fine dining and romantic dinners). They also have ice skating and tobogganing right outside the hotel.
- Quartier Petit Champlain – This is just below Frontenac and you’re in a winter wonderland. I would never get tired going back here and forth. The place is so stunning and perfect for a short walk and photo op. They also have cute shops that you could go shopping. I love going here during night time for the beautiful lights that give the street a better ambience.
For Food :
- Bistro Sous le Fort – I love this place and it so photogenic outside. They are also vegetarian-friendly and the menu is French – Canadian and European.
- iX pour Bistro – probably one of the best meal I’ve had while we were there. I love the service and ambience of the place. They also have a massive wine list. Definitely, need to order the onion soup as your starter. All in all, amazing experience.
- Chez Victor – One of the best places to go for poutine which is a Trademark of Quebec. They also have amazing vegetarian selections.
Things to do:
- Ice Skating at Patinoire Place D’youville – Such a stunning place to go ice skating, with the perfect backdrop of the old Quebec.
- Montmorency Falls – Believe it or not, this falls is so much more beautiful during winter. The falls look so beautiful with ice and the falls even stop because it has frozen. Such a sight to behold.
- Observatoire de la Capitale – This is the perfect place to see the whole Quebec City, I’d like to call it the mini CN tower, overlooking the whole town. Perfect to go for sunset.
I can’t wait to be back during Summer days to capture the city in a different aspect of light. I’ll keep you posted for the next one! :p
