Quebec City

Of course, while in the Provence of Quebec, we had to go to Quebec City. First off, it is extremely pretty in old town Quebec and inside the walled part of the city. We also had an awesome artist loft that we rented for a couple of days. But I think Quebec City wasn’t for us; it was very touristy and, other than walk around a square mile of city and look at old buildings, there wasn’t much to do. And we didn’t find any great restaurants or cafes – it was just mediocre tourist fare. The one time we branched outĀ of Old Quebec with a walk by the St. Lawrence and St. Charles river, we were rewarded by a nice coffee shop, which just goes to show what we want out of a vacation.

So Quebec gets a C: worth travelling to for a day from Montreal, but I don’t think I would go out of my way to get there again.

Obligatory Chateau Frontenac. Got to take a picture of the fancy Canadian railroad hotel.

The best part of Quebec was how pleasant and walkable the streets were.

There is a couple small parks around Quebec City, so we went leaf peeping!

    I always enjoy viewing your vacation through the blog. I also remember Jasmine’s very tasty blackberry cobbler crisp, yum!
