Québec City is the official capital of Quebec. If you are planning to visit just for the daytime, I would advise you to stay overnight. The city appears magical after nightfall. Thus, it deserves much more than a quick and rushed visit. I found this city to be the perfect place for a weekend trip. If you want to explore the city in a new light, here are a few things that you need to do.
- Take a Walk Through the Old Quebec
Visiting Old Quebec was just like a trip to a fairyland. It is an only-walled city of North America. It has been declared as the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Spend an entire day to discover the quaint area. Take a stroll in the incredible streets or sip of hot chocolate.
- Take a Food Tour of Old Quebec City
Being a food this is something that really excited me. While walking through the cobblestone, you can get a recount of the vibrant history of this area from a local tour guide. The food tour makes a stop in different tasting locations. There is no better way to learn about the delicacies that this city has to offer than to take this tour.
- Go for skating at Place d’Youville
In case you are visiting during the winter season, the best way to embrace it is throughput on skates and just hit the ice. At Place d’Youville, situated next to the fortress-like outer wall of the city, you will be able to glide along with the view. If you do not have your own skates like men, you can rent them on site. You can have some super-duper fun in here. There is no admission fee to this ice rink and the ice is cold even in a warm climate.
