Quirky in Quebec

As we first drove into Quebec we stopped off alongside the St Lawrence River as our road into the city was right next to it. It was a great introduction to Quebec, to admire the view on such a stunning day.

From then on, it just got even better. Our hotel (Hotel Jardine Ste-Anne) was situated right in the center of Quebec City which meant we got a sneak peek before we set out to explore. We drove up and down the cobbled streets, round and round one roundabout and finally down a cute small street to our hotel- so glad it was valet parking as getting down the street was enough lol.

Our hotel was in an old building but part of a new building, Mother was very happy that we were on the old side as it adds to the character of the stay. The building was an old house/home and converted into a hotel and it was very cute as it had a living room and a fireplace at the top of the stairs.

Of course, pretty much straight away we went out to explore. We were located close to a square which I believe is called Place d’Armes, this was surrounded by lots of restaurants and shops as well as the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac. It was just so lovely, honestly felt like I was on holiday (I know I was but in the same country mostly doesn’t feel like you are). And I must say Quebec city was my favourite place of our road trip! I think mum can agree?!

For the first day (half a day after we arrived), we spent the day roaming part of the city. It was lovely weather, some may say a little hot but I never moan about warm weather! We ate, we took in the scenery and tried to be that little bit french that day. The second day, we drove to a nearby waterfall (it is saying on google maps a 45 minute drive but I’m sure it only took us 10 minutes lol) which was nice to see, but you can only look at waterfalls for so long ey.

We then headed back to the city to roam some more (areas we hadn’t got too the previous day) and found some right gems!

I couldn’t recommend Quebec city enough to anyone, I would visit anytime and would also like to see it in the winter (I bet its beautiful). If anyone has visited in the winter, please let me know in the comments if its worth going? I feel I have more pictures than words in this blog post but I’m hoping the pictures do it justice.

 

Until next time…
