One of the most charming and friendly shopping districts you will ever find. Great finds, tremendous food, on a cobble-stoned French Canadian street steeped in history.

A must for any visit to the capital. It was recently voted "the most beautiful pedestrian street in Canada". It's Canada's little piece of Europe.

You feel like your in the south of France, just beware of the crowd of tourists that swamp the sea when the cruise ships arrive.

Nice stores, chocolate, and ice creams for the family! Recommend taking the lift up to the Fairmont and seeing an outdoor street performance. As far as the street, the cobble stones are beautiful and the stores/cafes remind you of Europe.

Highly touristy and eclectic. A chance to sample Quebecois culture and art with a heavy focus on aboriginal trinkets and art.
