“Bike and Sea .....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Wonderful "promenade" for biking .... taking you to or from the Old Quebec Port , sneaking along the Fleuve St-Laurent .... You can park your car at both end or even along the trail for free ..... And more you can connect to Levis via Pont de Quebec and come back to Quebec by the Ferry ..... Unique ....!!!

“Worth the trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Can get crowded on a warm day, but there are nice shops, cobblestoned streets and a pleasant feel to this ancient part of this magical city.

“Nice area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Nice area to go for a walk. Very pretty and near the Frontenac. In the summer there are some street performers that do their acts here which are family friendly.

“Beautiful, clean, & safe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Very nice area near the iconic Frontenac. Street performers often set up near statue and it is a challenging walk along the Govenour's Promenade (300+) steps takes you to the Plains of Abraham and along Citadel. Had the promenade to myself for a 7:30am walk - people sleep in here. Starbucks at Frontenac a bonus.

“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

A great view. There are always entertainers in the area to amaze and listen too. Take a self guided tour in the old mansion below the board walk. It's only a few dollars, nice and cool. It shows the foundation and rooms from a few hundred years or work.
