I am dying to go back when the weather is beautiful like in your photos! My husband and I went a few years ago just before New Years and there was a terrible snow storm- we ended up driving home to New Brunswick in it!

I love the architecture- very Europeon looking (or at least the 2 countries I’ve seen in Europe :-D). The little walkways between stores and all the flowers make it look so inviting.

I adore Quebec City! Have been there in winter but would love to go in autumn.

Did you go to the Saint-Alexandre pub? It’s fantastic.

So beautiful! I have never been to Canada, but my parents honeymooned in Toronto. :)

So pretty! I’m going there for the first time on the May 24 weekend for a wedding and am soooo excited!

So cool that we can go to a place like Quebec City without leaving the country!

Have a nice weekend :)

I love the Chateau Frontenac. I stayed there during a class trip in high school- Quebec city is so beautiful!

Quebec City is such a fun place to visit. They have a great vegetarian restaurant there- Le Commensal, highly recommend it if ever you have the chance to go back!

I love Quebec City because it’s a little taste of Europe in North America; the same is true about Old Town Montreal. It’s a lot cheaper to visit those cities (even from the US) than fly France.

My husband, son and I went to Quebec City for the winter festival in 2007. Our son was only one when we went. He was bundled up in his snowsuit and all you could see was his tiny face. He wasn’t bothered by the freezing temps one bit. The snow was piled high and yet the city still looked quaint and beautiful. However, we have been talking about going back during the summer ever since. These photos will definitely inspire my husband and I to book a trip ASAP.

Do you say the Frenchy “ke-bek” or “Kw-uh-bek?” Haha, I live in Washington state and so most people here say it the “Kw” way, not the french way. I took many years of french though, so I say it the Frenchy way.

I was in Canada many years ago, in the late 80’s. My work team was opening a new Mervyn’s store in Ann Arbor, MI, so on the weekend, we went across the border to Canada. Very pretty from what I remember. I’d love to go there again, just to get a taste of Europe, as I’ve never been to Europe, I’ve been to South America though. Hubby lived in Europe for 5 years so he knows the beauty of it. Have to add this to my list of vacations in the future.

I’m lucky to live one hour away from Quebec City. It’s a gorgeous city. Matter of fact, I’m going to spend the weekend there next week!

Weather is getting warner and a lot of people will dine outside, it’ll be great.

We took a family vacation to Quebec when I was in high school. It was my pick! I studied French in high school (and college), so I thought it would be cool to go.

I don’t really know much about Quebec, but it is definitely on my “to visit” list now!

I loved Quebec when I went there on a school trip on 8th grade. My fiance was also on that trip (obviously not my fiance at the time!) so we have all these picture of our 13 year old selves in Quebec. I would love to go back!

We stopped there for a day during a month-long class of studing the geology of eastern Canada. I absolutely loved it there, so beautiful! I remeber we ate at a place that had belly dancers come out during dinner and the boys couldn’t stop talking about it the rest of the trip;)

I love the little street in the 5th picture. It looks like someplace I’d just want to hang out in all day!

Happy weekend!

I LOVE these 1,000 word posts. I had never even considered going to Quebec but looking at these pictures I might have to add it to my list of places to visit.

My sister went to Quebec City when she finished high school on her way to Montreal. 10 years later and she’s still there – never made it Montreal! :P I hope she never leaves, I love being able to visit her there :) Beautiful photos!
