Quick Stop in Quebec City, Canada
As the title of this post mentions, we decided to do a quick pitstop in Quebec City and I’m definitely happy we did! We immediately found a parking spot and started roaming the streets of Old Quebec City.
We quickly walked up-hill and stopped to admire the architecture of the Monument Mgr. François-De Laval on the corner of the street.
We continued up-hill to enter The Fort Museum but since were on a time-crunch and it was only 7am, with the museum opening at 10 am we had to continue onward.
We stopped to take a breather at Place d'Armes and snapped this picture of the beautiful Fountain Monument of Faith.
Next we made our way to Saint Louis Street where we bumped into the Maillou House National Historic Site with it’s beautiful light blue window trimmings.
Also, isn’t the copper roof on the Ministère des Finances just gorgeous?
We didn’t have a set list of places we wanted to see so we just walked around admiring the pretty storefronts and charming architecture.
After getting lost through the beautiful streets we came across City Hall Park where we stopped to make sure we didn’t wander off too far from where we parked.
Since it was so early there really wasn’t many stores open so we couldn’t shop for souvenirs but at least I got a few great pics!
Walking around was so peaceful, we got so caught up on trying to get a good view of Fairmont Le Château Frontenac that we had got completely turned around and started walking in the wrong direction of where our car was parked. Just when we realized that we didn’t know where we were going is when it started to rain heavily so we had no choice but to quickly look at google maps and start sprinting in the right direction.
That concludes our trip to Quebec City, for it being our first time I was so impressed on how charming and calm it was. I definitely have plans to return in the near future!
