“The birthplace of French North America, Quebec City is known for its 18th- and 19th-century buildings and cobblestoned streets, as well as the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, which sits atop Cap Diamant, watching over the city and St. Lawrence River.
I fell in love with this place nine years ago when I took a whirlwind guided tour through the historic quarter of Old Quebec, and nearby Île d’Orléans — and decided to make this laid-back city my forever home.
With the feel of a big village, Quebec City has a vibrant food scene, a zest for arts and culture, and popular annual events, including Festival d’été de Québec, summer’s outdoor music party. So whether you’re looking for a lively weekend or relaxing getaway, the city has something to offer. Here are five places I recommend in my current hometown.”
