Reasonable price for family tour. Excellent interpretation by Parks Canada guide. Every Canadian should tour the Plains of Abraham to understand how Canada was born. Do the promenade walk from the Plains to the Fairmont hotel, simply beautiful!

This is a very important part of Quebec's history. Our local guide did a great job explaining how this modern day park changed the course of history. It is well kept and is used by tourists and locals alike.

This is basically a long walk in a very nice and large park with lots of Canadian history behind it. If you want to go deeper into the history aspect, then there are museums to visit as well.

More for the history buff. Lots of walking, many, many stairs up from the riverfront. Parts were closed in preparation for the big music festival that was being held just after we left.

While we were too late to enter the museum, we spent hours just on the grounds. The Plains are quite large and a lovely walk, run, or bike ride. You could picnic or exercise, or take a leisurely stroll. A Martello Tower (or two) are on site. The Joan D'Arc Gardens are exceptional.

We only had time to drive around and make short stops. The cannons are amazing to see and learn about. The flowers are beautiful and the whole area feels green and cool.

And the Plains of Abraham is a BIG part of the reason why. This is a huge area with several historic sites you can visit, or simply enjoy a stroll around the perimeter, or in the nearby gardens. If you continue further, you'll find the Museum des Beaux Artes (showcasing the talented artists of Quebec - though, be aware this... More
