With European influence, gorgeous churches, and cobblestone streets, Quebec remains a prominent province that captures everyone’s heart when they visit. The province is so welcoming that it’s a perfect place to live the joie de vivre – as the French say for “joy of life” and leave the stress behind of the everyday hustle and bustle. It’s a place where you can truly let go, and let whatever is coming, come freely.
Quebec is best explored in the summer
From the cosmopolitan south to the beautiful natural wonders of the north, Quebec is a region that is best explored in the summer – which is why now is the perfect time to go. The summer is also a great time to go because of the numerous festivals that happen in the city, such as the Quebec City Summer Festival and the Montreal International Jazz Festival both of which happen in July.
The summer also makes the region the most beautiful and welcoming, as there are 27 different national parks you can explore. From hiking to rock climbing and camping, summer is the perfect time to go, as the winters are extremely cold.
Discover Montreal and Quebec City
Montreal is probably the most frequently visiting city, with its museums, churches, and historic buildings such as the Basilique Notre-Dame. Quebec City is also home to Musee National des Beaux-Arts du Quebec which houses artwork by Picasso, Dali, and Monet to name a few. Many people speak French and you can hear it at the numerous different sidewalk cafes and 5-star restaurants that fill the entire city.
Apart from all the city life has to offer, there are also many adventures that Quebec offers as well. From wildlife cruises to kayaking, this region will be sure to leave lasting memories for you and your entire family. While Montreal can offer incredible culture and nightlife, sometimes knowing you can take a day trip to a quiet and peaceful place is great.
In addition to this, some of the best and most exciting places to eat and stay at happen to be the various different farms, orchards and bed and breakfast accommodations that are outside the city.
