Q is for Quebec City
2018 #AtoZ Challenge
After our whirlwind trip to Paris, we’re back in Canada in the capital city of the Province of Quebec.
I can’t say enough about Quebec City. The part that is Vieux-Québec, within the walls I think is as close to Paris as you can get without having to go to Paris.
Opening on the American Thanksgiving, the German Christmas market is a great place to mix, mingle and shop.
Perhaps, the best-known building in Quebec City is the Hotel Chateau Frontenac.
This fairy-tale castle with its central tower stretching high into the sky, located at the top of the cliff, stands guard over the city.
You can walk the boardwalk, known as Dufferin Terrace, from the hotel out to the Plains of Abraham. It’s a beautiful walk in the summer.
The Historic District of Old Quebec (Upper and Lower Town within the wall) is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
I can’t wait for my next visit!
