A good old stroll through Old Town: On the shores of the mighty St. Lawrence River, you will find one of the city’s most coveted gems, Old Québec. It’s like walking through the 17th century, but with Google Maps pointing the way.

Winding down with high tea: The crown jewel of the city sits high above the port, in the centre of Old Québec. A beautiful castle, the Château Frontenac is the most incredible spot in the capital to enjoy a cup of afternoon tea. Bottoms up!

Blackcurrant cravings: Just a short trip outside the city centre, you will find Cassis Monna & Filles on Île d’Orléans. This agricultural acreage is home to a wine cellar, a restaurant and a dairy bar. Take your pick, or better yet, visit all three!
