Summers Are For Road Trips – Quebec City

I love Quebec City, specifically Old Quebec.  I’ve never been to Europe, but I imagine it’s like being in a European city. Founded in 1608, it’s one of North America’s oldest cities. The Chateau Frontenac is reported to be one of the most photographed hotels in the world.  I took my fair share of pictures.

If you are planning a trip to Quebec City, I highly recommend this hotel.  The location in Upper Old Quebec is perfect.  You can walk everywhere you want to go.  There are so many excellent restaurants, cafes, and shops in Old Quebec (or you can just wander the streets for hours admiring the architecture).  The people were friendly, the food was so good, the coffee was the best I’ve ever tasted, it was just an all-around excellent experience. I tried to use some of my high school French, but when the server responded in English, I took that as a sign that maybe I should stick to my first language!
