“Charming and a lovely browse”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

A mixture of fine shops and tourist draws, in a lovely historic street starting at the base of the funicular in Lower Town. Have a browse, and enjoy the shopping.

“The prettiest street in North America?”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

OK, there are other beautiful places in North America. But the view on the rue du Petit Champlain, during winter, on a snowy day, from the top of the stairs at its beginning, is the prettiest sight I have seen in North America (although a native Québécois, as you may have guessed, I have lived in US and travelled quite extensively during these years. Tell me what you think...

“Absolutely charming to behold!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Beautiful boutiques, restaurants and shops, hidden away or lining the streets. Do not miss when you come to Quebec City. Venture downwards from the Chateau Frontenac, and you'll be awed by your discovery!

“Stepping back in time”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Did you know this is the oldest commercial district in North America?

Well, it is.

The streets are narrow and the buildings are so old. There are lots of cute stores and restaurants to check out.

There are musicians all over so you are constantly entertained.

I can't wait to go back.
