Montmorency Falls in Quebec, Canada, was one of the most beautiful sites I have ever seen. I know TLC said not to chase waterfalls, but I just can’t help myself – I LOVE WATERFALLS. It’s just something about their majestic beauty and grandeur. I’ve been driving people nuts talking non-stop about Canada, but I truly never expected to love it as much as I did. A summer trip might already be in the works..
Only two crazy girls would go somewhere colder than Chicago for winter break, but I’m truly grateful that my best friend went along with this insane idea. We had one of the best vacations together ever. In fact, I’m pretty sure we’d both rather be in Canada right now. We split our trip between Montreal and Quebec City. I highly recommend both cities. There is just so much charm everywhere and you truly feel like you’re in Europe.
My other crazy idea is to start learning French. I took a semester of French in the sixth grade and remembered a few phrases from my older sister and long and behold, I had those French-Canadians think I knew French! Everybody was extremely friendly and very helpful when we inquired about random stuff.
Anyway, back to the Falls. We took an Uber to the Falls from Old Town in Quebec City, where we were staying, and about thirty minutes later we arrived. There was no entrance fee and we walked around the grounds for a few hours. Right away we were taken aback by all the natural beauty. Honestly, I think the snow made everything look purer and it made us forget about how cold it was that day. Montmorency Falls is actually about thirty meters taller than Niagara Falls (which is on my Canada list). There are also many activities to partake in while there like riding the cable cars, snowshoeing, zip- lining (in the summer), etc. The suspended bridge above the Falls was sooo cool. I never expected to get such great views! The sound of the water and feeling the bridge move a bit made it so thrilling to walk across the bridge! Needless to say, definitely put Montmorency Falls on your bucket list!
