The true way to dive into the city’s French Canadian culture is meeting up with the locals—and understanding that all it takes is a smile, some repartee, and a carefree spirit to enjoy one-of-a-kind experiences. Only the warm, Québec City way.

Places Timothy visited during his trip to Québec City:


With over 25,000 works of art, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec offers a first-hand look into the creative mindset that has shaped the city’s psyche for over 400 years. 

Dufferin Terrace

Dufferin Terrace is located at the foot of the most widely photographed hotel in the world, the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac. It offers breathtaking views of Québec City's riverscapes and provides a history lesson on the city’s transformative years as the cradle of French civilization in North America. 

Hôtel de Glace

As the only ice hotel in North America, Hôtel de Glace, which is entirely made of snow and ice, is an architectural marvel that surrounds visitors in a magical, winter wonderland. For a day trip or an overnight stay, Hôtel de Glace is a bucket-list attraction during Québec City’s snowy months.

Old Québec

As the birthplace of French North America and the only fortified city on the continent north of Mexico, Québec City is bursting with European charm that entices visitors to discover its fairytale architecture, quintessential cobblestone streets, unique boutiques and art galleries, as well as a wide variety of fabulous restaurants and cafés. 

Nina Pizza

The pizzeria everyone is talking about! Nina Pizza, nestled in the heart of Québec City’s St-Roch district, serves up certified Neapolitan pizzas made with premium ingredients and cooked in a traditional wood-fired oven imported from Naples. Pizza never tasted this good. 

La Bûche

La Bûche pays tribute to traditional Québec cuisine with its sugar-shack atmosphere, Québec folklore and an eclectic menu that includes copious amounts of locally sourced products. From maple syrup delights to seafood and game dishes to Québec’s famous poutine, La Bûche is a must-stop! 

Griendel : Brasserie Artisanale

Griendel : Brasserie Artisanale is a cozy craft microbrewery that produces a wide selection of quality beers. Along with its typical mouth-watering brasserie menu, Griendel : Brasserie Artisanale hosts many different events, including live bands, games and karaoke nights.
