Friday Favorites From Quebec City, Canada!

Bonjour!  Today I am delighted to link up with   lErika from A Little Bit of Everything and Andrea from Momfessionals for their weekly Friday Favorites Link-Up!  If you want to go somewhere in North America that feels like Europe, you will definitely want to visit Quebec City

IMPORTANT:  In order to visit Canada, you must provide evidence of your COVID vaccination! 

How to Get There

From Massachusetts, Quebec City is a six hour drive.  However, you can also fly there.  We drove because there was no direct flight from Logan Airport in Boston

Where We Stayed

Most people think of the Hotel Fontenac (the tall building in the picture) when they think of Quebec.  It is a beautiful hotel:

However, we stayed across the street from the Fontenac at Auberge Place d'Armes.  If I went again, I would stay at the Hotel Clarendon which is bigger than where we stayed, and it has a lobby.

All the action in the city is in Old Quebec which is a walled city.  Old Quebec is very charming and historic.  Everyone speaks French and English (usually with a French accent).  There were so many shops and restaurants.  There were a LOT of tourists!  Canada closed its borders during COVID so tourists are making up for lost time!

Most importantly, you can walk every where!  We had at least 20,000 steps every day!  In Quebec, they even have a sidewalk sweeper which almost ran me over when I was looking in a shop window!  Check out these beautiful butterflies made of flowers: 

If you want to get outside of Quebec City...

One day we took the bus to Montmorency Falls.  When you arrive, you have a choice:  walk up almost 500 steps for free OR take the gondola for $16 round trip.  I took the gondola while my husband ventured up the steps.  He was quite proud of himself but was unable to walk back down.  Cost:  $14 one way ticket down.

Anyway, this waterfall is bigger than Niagara Falls.  There is a bridge that allows you to walk on top of the waterfall.  You can even zipline across the falls or do rock climbing.  

Another beautiful place we visited was St. Anne de Beaupre.    St. Anne was Mary's mother (Jesus' grandmother).  The church is extremely ornate and beautiful.  I bought a St. Christopher medal in French and had it blessed by the priest who happened to grow up in Springfield, Massachusetts!

300th Peloton Ride!

I do love my Peloton!  I reached a huge milestone last Sunday.  My Peloton name is Mrs. Watermelon!  I am the name next to the llama with the pink blanket!

As always, thank you for visiting the blog and checking in.  If you have been to Quebec, please let me know about your trip in the comments!

Happy and healthy weekend!
