Quebec City Honeymoon Guide
Earlier this month Kyle and I went on a mini honeymoon to Quebec City. Oh how I love Quebec City! If you ever get the chance to visit then I highly suggest you go. It’s like walking the streets of Europe without having to travel overseas. We had such a relaxed time and we loved wandering the cobblestone streets. If you’re visiting the city anytime soon then I’ve outlined a what our trip consisted of, sort of like a Quebec City honeymoon guide or travelling to Quebec City for the weekend guide.
We decided to stay in an AirBnB just outside the city ( hello free parking ), and then drive in and park right downtown old Quebec to explore each day. The AirBnB was the cutest little apartment, and just my style – modern and monochrome. We love staying in AirBnB’s when travelling because it gives you the option to make your own meals and save a little bit of money on food. Here’s where we stayed!
Quebec City is absolutely stunning. This is the perfect city to just wander the streets and peek inside little shops. We spent most of our time wandering, people watching, and enjoying our surroundings.
If you’re visiting then checking out Rue du Petit-Champlain is definitely a must no matter what time of year you visit the city. The street is for pedestrians only and it’s full with cafes, restaurants, and shops. We’ve been in the winter as well and it’s like a post card lined with Christmas trees and lights – beautiful!
Other than walking around the city and taking in the beautiful sites we decided to visit Marché du Vieux Port – which is Quebec City’s biggest farmers market. We decided to shop the market to pick up something to cook for dinner one evening. There’s nothing better than fresh vegetables from a farmers market. We wound up getting fresh green and yellow beans, homemade quinoa salad, fresh salmon, and cheese curds. Food always tastes 10x better when it’s fresh.
Quebec City has some amazing restaurants, and delicious French food. There are so many options that we had a tough time choosing where to have our dinner out one night. Here’s where we stopped by during our stay:
This is a little café right in the middle of Old Quebec. We decided to stop for a coffee and sit on the patio to take a break from walking. I enjoyed a coffee while Kyle tried a sandwich, which was like a grilled cheese with ham – he said it was amazing. The café also serves tons of pastries, macarons, and cakes. If you have a sweet tooth, and you want to feel like you’re sitting on a terrace in Paris then I suggest stopping by La Maison Smith.
For dinner we decided on trying Chez Jules. The atmosphere was really nice with stone walls, and red accents. For appetizer’s we went with the escargot, and the warm goat cheese salad. Both were delicious, and the escargot comes in the shells like it does in France. For my main meal I went with the tagliatelle past dish, and Kyle had the braised beef cheek. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals, and I would definitely go back.
