What to See and Do in Quebec City – #LexGoFurther – A Ford Escape

I got a lot of recommendations, many from my sponsor Tourisme Québec, about places to see and eat while driving from Toronto through Quebec and into New Brunswick on #LexGoFurther – A Ford Escape.  More than I could use in one trip, but I though it might be helpful for other people doing the same drive, and for me on future road trips east.

Recommendations on What to See and Do (and Eat) in Quebec City

From Julie Tyrios

From the Danielle, Denis & Team at Tourisme Québec:

Here are some ideas for Quebec city and area :

Attractions :

Hôtel de Glace – This hotel impresses through its unique character and magical design. You’ll be dazzled by the majestic ice chandelier, popular ice slide, Ice Bar and ice chapel. Spend the night in one of the hotel’s 36 rooms or suites and enjoy access to the outdoor spas and sauna.

Les Secrets Nordiques – From the base camp at the Mont-Sainte-Anne ski resort, discover dogsledding, snowshoeing, skijoring and kick-sledding.

Pourvoirie du Lac Beauport – This outfitter offers an unforgettable experience in an enchanting environment.

Event :

Québec Winter Carnival in collaboration with Loto-Québec – February 01, 2013 to February 17, 2013
For nearly 60 years, the biggest winter carnival in the world has been celebrating the joys and magic of winter. Experience the thrills and emotions with your family by taking part in a variety of winter activities: horse-drawn sleigh rides, dogsledding rides, children’s village and much more.


Should you wish to discover Québec’s traditional meals, Aux Anciens Canadiens is the perfect place in town.

For more restaurants :


If you are interested to see a nice toy store in the Saint-Roch district, Benjo is the place. (The rumors say that Celine Dion can’t go to Québec City without gooing there) :

St-Roch district (especially rue St-Joseph) and towards the Old Port is the trendy area in town for shopping and dinning.

One other area you might not want to miss is: Quartier petit Champlain  A district recognized as one of Old Québec City’s most beautiful, located at the foot of the cliff beneath the Château Frontenac. Lined with boutiques and bistros, its pedestrian streets offer a romantic atmosphere in every season, but are especially magical in winter, when they are enchantingly lit.
