Quebec City in the winter is simply ohmygosh gorgeous. It pretty much has everything you want. Romance? Check. Adventure? Double check. Foodie paradise? Charming? Yes, yes and yes. Here are some peeks of Old Quebec.
We took the Funiculaire (vertical tram) to get to the upper part of Old Quebec and it was breathtaking. It’s only $2.25 to ride! Despite all of the snow, it actually was comparable to Toronto in terms of coldness. I didn’t freeze! It was perfect.
I also really liked lots of the graffiti that I saw there. More pictures to follow from the fabulous winter carnival, restaurants and shopping!
I’m so very excited to tell you all that I’m going to be attending the Québec Winter Carnival next month! The Québec Carnival is the largest winter carnival in the world and runs from February 1st to February 17. I’ve been dying to go to this event ever since we used to have mini Carnivals and sing the Bonhomme song in elementary school. (anyone?).
So, what is the Winter Carnival? The Carnival got it’s roots from the beginning of Canada’s French colony, when people would get together with friends and family before Lent to drink, eat and have an all around good time.
I can’t wait to visit the Ice Palace, eat beaver tails, see ice carving and watch the Night Parade!
Are you thinking of attending? You should! Check out the activities and where to stay.
Check back next month to follow me on my winter adventure!
