When visiting this beautiful place you will be amazed of the view of The St Lawrence Seaway. This place overlooks the city below and it is heavenly in its strategic location as one can view the seaway as the vessels travel along the seaway. This area is a tourist location and there are thousands of tourists during the busy summer... More

Though of historic import and a site I wanted to see--it was anticlimactic on our city tour... we had planned to grab something to eat and have a picnic there, but there was little in the way of food to be purchased at the snackbar on site. Kind of disappointing.

We went in January for the large outdoor skating loop. There are skate rentals there as well as a heated area to change out of your shoes. The ice wasn't the smoothest but it was still a great place to skate.

If you are Canadian (or a Canadien) go so the spots where so much the nation's destiny was forged. Impressive and thought-provoking.The Martello Tower was also fascinating--soldiers must have been a lot tinier than me back then!

Serene while we were there ( although the Rolling Stones had played there a few nights before). Beautifully kept and historic place. Many important battles fought there. Views are wonderful.

Ringing in the 2016 on the Plains of Abraham was unforgettable! We were fortunate to visit Quebec City for the first time between Christmas and the New Year and heard this was the place to go on New Year's Eve. The DJ music selection, fireworks, light display, and merriment of the crowd lent excitement to our celebration. We felt safe... More
