    My wife and I and another couple went in December to experience the European-like Christmas Markets and had a wonderful time. Old Quebec City is almost like being in France. Friendly people and delicious food.

    We spent two days exploring the area's shops and restaurants. Great variety of places to visit. Lighting at night was wonderful and the the area felt very safe. We were there right before Halloween, so everything was decorated. Plenty of places to take photos!

    A great place to relax in the sun or in the shade with great views over the water and the Lower town. You can take the funicular from here (right near the statue, located in the glass house) to reach the Lower town, or you can wall all the way to the Citadel (the entrance is on the opposite site though, if you want to visit it). Lots of information about the origins of the terrace and several musicians to entertain you.

    A very romantic place, if you like history and it reminds me of so many historic European cities.

    To one side, there are several hotels, some older than others, with probably bird eye view over this whole location.

    To reach the lower town you either take the funicular from the Dufferin terrace for 5 CAD one way/per person (the entrance is located inside the glass square houses right near the statue - don't forget to press on the door to access this area) with the capacity of the funicular of max 6-8 people and going every minute, reaching the old town in 1 minute.

    The other option is to walk all the way here, if you have the energy, and immerse yourself in more touristic attractions with lots of over prices cake shops/ice cream shops/nougaterie or restaurants and fashion shops far detached from the French or European fashion though.

    Cobbled streets located near the water, the ferry not far from here, a gorgeous piazza with people watching as in the style you find in most of Med countries, if you are fortunate to be here on a sunny day.

    When we walked into the Place, the first words out of my wife's mouth were, "this is SO PRETTY!" This from a woman who's been to Paris (twice!), Rome, and Rio de Janeiro. The colonial buildings around it are close to you, but they don't push in on you; they just add elegance to the scene. It's small, not grand like Piazza Navonna, but it's one of those small spaces that glamorizes easily. When we went, the Place was done up for the Holidays; but I see in Google Images that they do it up for spring and summer, too. Add some tables and umbrellas in the summer, and suddenly it's the French cafe culture. You could spend fifteen minutes here or an hour. Either way you'll enjoy the time, and the thing is: tomorrow you'll remember it and you'll want to come back.

    I love Quebec City! Short flight to experience French cuisine, cobble stone stone streets in one of the oldest cities in North America. And, these French speakers are actually Friendly! Let me not forget to mention the great exchange rate for our dollar.

    Our guide on our food tour of Quebec City mentioned were should check out Sant-Roch to get away from the touristy part of the city and see were the locals hang out.

    This place has a grittier artsy vibe than the historic part of the city, that's not necessarily bad thing.

    We strolled up and a down Rue St. Joseph with stores and cafes. She stopped into a awesome and trendy eye glass place (Les Branchés Lunetterie Inc) and an hour later left with two new frames she had never seen before.

    We also strolled into a high-end corner gourmet food store with all sorts of locally sourced foods.

    It's about a 15-20 minute walk from the Old City. It's worth your time.

    Less tacky than the resort village of Mont Tremblant itself the village of St Jovite is named after the wooden church established in the first half of the nineteenth century. A monumental bell stands outside next to a board advertising a Stradivarius violin festival. The village itself is a mecca of mainly mid range gastropubs and restaurants (if you want more of a fine dining experience it’s evening only and at the grill
    Saint Georges) but perhaps best for groceries, ceramics and other craft snd cookware but not fine art. The only gallery is a disappointment of garish kitsch.
