No visit to Quebec City should miss a stroll along Terrasse Dufferin. There isn't a great deal to do (unless you're there in winter and fancy going on a toboggan), but it's very picturesque before or after you visit the Chateau.

Although it doesn't take much time to see it all, you get some of the best places to take photographs, Whether you overlook the St. Laurence, or admire the Chateau Frontanac, you need to visit the Terrasse before you leave

Kudos to the city fathers for having the foresight to protect and preserve such a large expanse of area in the old city. Surprisingly large area of boardwalk, both length and width, with extensive improvements that are well maintained. Helpful displays.

Wide board walk with its history explained and offering breathtaking views of the St Lawrence. Steps up to the historic Plains of Abraham, again with splendid views.

The wooden promenade/terrace was covered in ice this morning which made for a careful walk along the fence. Few people were about at 8.00am so we were able to take wonderful photos of the chateau, the citadel, the ferries, the river etc.

Very comfortable to have a break there with a cup of coffee. You can have a good view of the river and the opposite side.

The terrace consists of a wood plank walkway with gazebos and benches from Château Frontenac to Citadelle of Quebec. It's beautiful and provides an amazing view.

It was the Thursday night when we were there... They were spectacular. I believe the rest of August is Thursdays and Saturday evenings. It started around 9:30pm or so.
