Quebec City, Canada – Vacation Packages

By Miss Julie | December 24th, 2006

Quebec City is a charming and historic city with a distinctly European cachet. The fact that it’s French-speaking certainly doesn’t hurt. The turrets and towers of the Chateau Frontenac dominate the skyline. Narrow streets climb steeply down to the Lower Town and restaurants are tucked into homes dating from the 18th and 19th centuries. From Old Quebec City, you can see some of the finest ski hills in North America. Only thirty minutes from downtown, five downhill ski resorts beckon to ski buffs and nature lovers: Mont-Sainte-Anne, Stoneham, Le Relais, Le Massif and le Centre Castor.

If you don’t want to leave town, there are stil plenty of worthy attractions including the Musée de la Civilisation, featuring historic architecture, the Musée de l’abeille, a Honey Economuseum and the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency, magnificent falls one and a half times higher than those found at Niargara, with 35,000 litres of water cascading down each second. Shopping is also excellent in Quebec City, boasting the Place Laurier, the largest shopping center in Eastern Canada, the Quartier Petit Champlain, full of established shops selling gifts, food, crafts and fashions, and Galeries de la Capitale, a mall with an indoor megapark and rink.
