Quebec City is one of those places where you visit and then fall completely head over heels for and then move there. Well, I’m not ready to move there just yet, but I’m sharing my favorite highlights from my winter wonderland trip with my friend Dina. First of all, Quebec City is only a three hour train ride from Montreal. The train station in Montreal is easy to navigate and it’s part of the Underground City (Montreal blog post coming soon).
I had to wear my Canadian tuxedo while traveling because let’s be honest, who doesn’t appreciate a good denim on denim look. Also, it’s imperative that you wear snow boots at all times. I repeat, if you’re going to Canada in the winter you must wear snow boots. Your toes will thank you forever and ever. Moving on, the train ride flew by quickly and they even handed out chocolate snowmen to all the passengers. How adorable!!
Upon arrival, we took an Uber to Hotel Manoir Victoria, a really cute and renovated boutique hotel located in Old Town and just a few minutes from the train station.
Every street is so cute and you forget that you’re constantly going uphill.We had to go take pictures of Château Frontenac. It’s the most photographed hotel in the world and no wonder because the views are amazing. There’s also a toboggan slide, but the line was really long. Maybe next time. We did find the maple syrup though! It was the best Canadian dollar I spent on the entire trip.More pretty Quebec City scenes. Another picturesque part of the city is le Quartier Petit-Champlain. It’s full of little shops and artists and again, every side street is so cute and perfect.
The Morrin Centre is also a must see if you love books. It used to be an old prison and has been transformed into an amazing library. You have to take off your boots and wear slippers for the preservation of the wood floors. It felt like I was back in time when I was reading and exploring the book cases.Of course Montmorency Falls is a must see!Isn’t this city just sooo magical?! I really can’t wait to go back, but preferably when it’s warmer out!
