Quebec City makes for an ideal summer vacation. With temperatures in the mid-seventies throughout the summer months, visitors can comfortably explore this vibrant city even in the depths of August.
Start off with Quebec City’s Old Town, where old walls surround this portion of the city atop the hill and a walk along the cobblestone streets gives way to the front steps of ancient villas.
Then head downtown, just west of Old Town, for entertainment, restaurants and an eclectic local culture. Festivals throughout the year and the ever-popular Cirque du Soleil shows are also popular Quebec City festivities.
For shopping, browse the shops and boutiques in Basse-Ville before stopping at the farmer’s market for fresh produce and treats.
At night, visitors will find everything from cozy corner bars to happening clubs in the Grande Allée.
Lay your head down to rest after a long day of exploring at the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac (pictured above) or L’Hôtel du Vieux Québec.
