Lots of shops and cafes. Easy walking and lots to see. You can take the stairs from the upper old town Quebec right at the base of the famous chateau Frontenac hotel. You can also take the funicular down to petite Champlain for only 2.25 Canadian.

This is the reason for visiting Quebec City. It is a reminder of early life in the colonies. Don't mind the touristy stores and ho hum restaurants who cater to folks like you. Wander around, take in the sights and stop long enough for a drink and let the world go by. Quartier du Petit Champlain is accessible by foot... More

I conducted most of my souvenir shopping from this area and went to Native store and purchased Canadian hand made jewelry for myself and my daughter, we stopped in at a coffee shop and enjoy a...

An easy walk or a short tram ride from the Chateau Frontenac which takes you directly to the street. Cute shops, restaurants and bars available, and always decked out for the season, whether it be the Christmas holidays, Halloween, etc. January seems to be the time when many shops and restaurants closed for remodel but there's still quite a few...

This is a fun and beautiful little street to visit. Mostly tourist shops, but some nice restaurants as well. In winter there is an outdoor fireplace with adirondack chairs at the end of the street.

Super cute location that is decorated with lights and other festive decorations in the winter time. Nice, small shops (some of them sell local products) and cute restaurants. Definitely a place to walk around.
