If you only have a few days in Québec like I did, I recommend visiting the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec, especially if you are interested in art history. Admission for adults is a bit steep at $18 but you definitely get your money’s...

Québec has a great farmer’s market called the Marché du Vieux-Port. Located in the center of town, (160 Saint-André Quai), the market is a short walk from both the trendy Saint-Josephs shopping and dining area and the the port at. Naturally, this...

Having worked in the music industry for nearly two years before switching to travel writing full-time, I attended more concerts than I can count. However, Québec Festival d'été made my record label days seem like a walk in the park. The festival...
27 Rue Couillard, Québec, QC G1R 3T4, Canada
Tucked quietly away from the main tourist sites, the small Epicerie de la rue Couillard offers beautiful breads and specialty meats, along with a great selection of regional cheeses --- altogether, a great one-stop-shop to grab everything you need...

310 Rue Saint-Roch, Québec, QC G1K 6S2, Canada
When I say that La Barberie is Québec’s coolest hangout I’m really not exaggerating. I promise! For starters, there is no food on the menu snacks (at least on the day I visited). This is actually not a bad thing because you can just bring your own...

A few minutes from downtown Quebec, you can visit the waterfalls on the Montmorency River. These falls are about 98' higher than the grand Niagara Falls. Montmorency Falls drop over the cliff and down into the St. Lawrence River. There is a metal...
