The Old City is one of the most popular areas for both tourists and locals alike. Not only because of its charm but also because of the array of restaurants, bars, hotels and boutiques. St-Jean Street welcomes visitors to the Old City and is the pulse of the city’s social and cultural scene. Place d'Youville provides a virtual stage for performing artists and people from all walks of life partaking in such delights as ice-skating!
City Hall is on Côte-de-la-Fabrique, where the abundance of restaurants and boutiques leads to the Place de l'Hôtel-de-Ville, the Petit Séminaire de Québec, and the Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-Québec. The Rue du Trésor is a rather splendid area to discover, where local artists vie for attention and are happy to demonstrate their skills to tourists and local residents. The Château Frontenac and the Dufferin Terrace boardwalk allow visitors to savour the views of the St Lawrence River, the Laurentian Mountains, and the Île d'Orléans.
Plains of Abraham, a historically important area where every sport enthusiast converges to indulge in their outdoor pursuits, whether it is rollerblading, jogging or walking. It is also where people gather for the annual Jean-Baptiste celebrations. The Plains are worth the small aerobic workout to get to the top as the views provide wonderful photo opportunities for visitors taking holidays in Quebec. Although nowadays it is an ideal al fresco lunch area, this area was the site of the 1759 battle between the French and the English and a significant location in Quebec's history.
Place Royale and Vieux-Port are two of the most picturesque areas of Quebec with quaint restaurants, bars, quirky antique shops, art galleries, and designer boutiques. Place Royale is not as busy as the Old City but is just as enjoyable.
On the St Lawrence River, Beauport's picturesque Royale Avenue introduces the visitor to the Montmorency Falls. The magical Île d'Orléans, an island in the middle of the St. Lawrence River offers visitors a chance to relax in quiet surroundings and also to experience nature, despite its close proximity to the city.
