Save Place
Baie-Saint-Paul, QC, Canada
The little town of Baie-St.-Paul has been a haven along the north shore of the St. Lawrence since the 1670's, when the French began settling here. Today, just a couple of hours from Québec city by car, it's an artist's colony full of charming...

AB-93, Alberta, Canada
Not sure where to go from Glacier National Park, we decided to follow the advice of two Canadian residents whom we just met at a hostel in Montana. They insisted we follow Icefields Parkway from Banff to Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada....
Save Place
Old Quebec, Quebec City, QC, Canada
While walking within the walls of Old Québec a few years ago, (my fourth visit, but the first for my wife), this blond-maned horse caught my eye. Incidentally, in Québec French, "blonde" is more than just a hair color. It's often used to mean...

34 Rue Saint Louis, Québec, QC G1R 4P3, Canada
Housed in the oldest residential building (dating to 1675) in Québec City, Aux Anciens Canadiens is a restaurant that appeals to both locals and visitors. Traditional specialties like tourtière (a baked meat pie) might include...

2931 Rue Masson, Montréal, QC H1Y 1X5, Canada
Madre restaurant is good at any time but their brunch is definitely one of the best in the city. The poached eggs and chorizo bubbles with caramelized onions and the french toast are delicious! Read more about my experience at Madre on my blog.

3663 Park Rd, North Vancouver, BC V7J 3G3, Canada
The Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge, in northern Vancouver, is one of Lynn Valley's best-kept secrets. The 50 meter high bridge stretches across a beautiful canyon with waterfalls and deep pools below. The best part is, it's free of charge. Crossing...

3895 Boul St-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2W 1X9, Canada
Schwartz's Hebrew Delicatessen is the most famous smoked meat restaurant in Montreal. The unique flavor of its meat is credited to a 10-day curing process and an 80-year-old brick smokehouse. It doesn't hurt that they sell so much meat that you're...

1615 Rue Saint-Denis, Montréal, QC H2X 3K3, Canada
For every chocoholic out there, trust me on this one. When in Montreal you must go to Juliette & Chocolat! Hot or cold, white or milk, every dish is served with origin and vintage chocolates. I have tried sundaes, crepes, and fondue and none of...

1490 Rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montréal, QC H3G 1L3, Canada
This place has unfortunately closed. This recently opened French pastry place carries some of the best pastries in Montreal. A must try!

Donuts, the best donuts, need I say more? The coffee is excellent too! Coffeeshop by day and restaurant by night...

1266 Avenue du Mont-Royal E, Montréal, QC H2J 1Y4, Canada
People who haven't heard of macarons by now probably live under a rock. Not just yet another French dessert to travel across the pond, macarons are a delightful bite-size sandwich-like treat, with a thin, crusty envelope and a flush, jam-like...

1 Côte de la Citadelle, Québec, QC G1R 3R2, Canada
Drive half a day north from Boston, and you arrive in French-speaking Québec City, established in 1608 on a strategic bluff above the St. Lawrence River, still surrounded by its wall. Charles Dickens' 19th-century description of the place still...
Save Place
32 Avenue Bégin, Lévis, QC G6Y 4B8, Canada
One of the best views of Québec City is from the water; take a ferry ride across the St. Lawrence river from the base of the old city across to Lévis. (A round-trip is a relaxing half-hour at most.) Looking back at Québec, you'll agree with...
