Québec Vacation Packages
Québec’s motto is “je me souviens” (I remember). To the more than half a million residents of Quebec City, this means more than just honoring the lessons learned from the past; it also expresses the delight in preserving monuments and traditions while enjoying freedom and showing “joie de vivre” (lust for life). To experience the charm of this historic port city, join the easy-going locals in historic squares, splendid museums, fresh-produce restaurants and cliff-top parks.
Québec City was one of the earliest European colonies on the continent. The settlement on the St. Lawrence River was a fur-trading post, established in 1608 by the Frenchman Samuel de Champlain. Most residents today cherish the French language and Gallic traditions, even though more recent immigrant groups also add their culture to the mix.
Set out to explore Old Québec (Vieux Québec) on foot or by bike. All major historic and family attractions are within easy reach from the Old Port Québec.
Browse the shops and enjoy fresh local produce in the old stone buildings of Petit-Champlain, North America’s oldest commercial district. Admire the ornate Church Notre-Dame-des-Victoires in Place-Royale in Quebec’s Lower Town.
Rue de Petit-Champlain is where you can get access to the cable railway that will transport you to the Upper Town. Enjoy the magnificent views of the river from Dufferin Terrace, a promenade atop the cliffs, or get active in Battlefields Park.
You could spend days in Old Québec, but don’t miss other exciting parts of the city. Saint-Roch, for example, is known for its artists, trendy bars and galleries. It’s also worth making the short trip to Montmorency Falls, which freezes over in winter.
If you are into history, art, gourmet food, shopping and wintersports, you won’t regret a visit to Québec City. Aéroport International Jean-Lesage is just a short drive away from the city and gives access to Canada’s stunning wilderness.
