How to spend the greatest Holidays in Quebec City
The Holidays are, for many of us, the opportunity to return home and celebrate with family.
My hometown being Quebec City, this is where I love to go back during this festive time because everything seems straight out of a Christmas movie!
As you probably already know from this Winter photos article or this one about the German Christmas Market, I love winter in Quebec City!
Here is some inspiration if you ever spend time in Quebec like me during the Holidays. And you, how do you celebrate the Holiday season?
Arrive at the Gare du Palais, because it’s pretty magical! You will have the chance to arrive to this station if you arrive by train or by bus
Eat a Greenpoint pizza from Nina Pizza Napolitaine (or any on the menu, because they’re all good!) Tip: Ask for a seat at the bar to see the pizzaiolo in action and warm up near the wood oven
Even if it’s Winter, I recommend this great drink at Nektar Caféologue: the Cold Brew! If you are adventurous, try the “fudge” version
Take a walk along the Jacques-Cartier Valley, a beautiful national park 30 minutes away from Quebec City!
Take a walk in Old Quebec during a storm (and take lots of pictures of the falling snow!)
Visit the Château Frontenac from the Terrasse Pierre-Dugua-de-Mons
Take a walk from St-Roch to Limoilou via the St- Charles River Walk
Go to Montmorency Falls to watch the sugar loaf form near the highest waterfall in Canada
Browse through all the books at Maison de la Littérature during a snowy day
Go grab a coffee and some donuts at Saint-Henri microtorrefacteur, because it’s the best doughnuts I ever had and the place is so Instagram-friendly
Go to the Observatoire de la Capitale during a snow storm. The visibility may be reduced but it will give you very unique photos
Go snoop at the shop of the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec. The place itself is simply fabulous as is their selection of books and objects
Brunch at La Bûche restaurant to have a sugar shack experience in the heart of Old Quebec!
Continue with a visit of Petit Champlain which is so magical during the Holidays!
Walk in the Old Port area and admire the beautiful facades
Eat one of the best poutines in Quebec at Chez Ashton. I highly recommend taking small portion to have enough room for what’s next…
Take a dessert Chez Muffy, one of the most beautiful restaurants in Quebec City and also one of those with the most history. While you’re there, take the opportunity to admire the beautiful lobby of Auberge Saint-Antoine
Have a coffee or a Moscow Mule at Maelstrøm Saint-Roch
