When it comes to language, Québec City is a French-first destination, but luckily for us anglophones, Quebecers are a warm and welcoming people. In fact, most can switch back and forth between French and English faster than you can say “French fries.” Feel free to test this theory on your own. 

Secondly, make sure you pack yourself some formidable footwear. One of the best things about this city is its easy access on foot. That being said, you might want to leave the heels or wingtips in the hotel in favour of some comfortable walking shoes. Your feet will most certainly thank you for it in the long run.

Last but certainly not least, bring your appetite. To say that food here is good is quite possibly the understatement of the century. It goes beyond poutine and steamies at the hockey game. In fact, you’re likely to find your way to some of the most wonderful flavours the province has to offer. Don’t be shy. Ask for seconds.
