After our few days in Boston, we rented a car and drove about 6 hours North to Quebec City in Canada. It was an easy drive, through New Hampshire and Vermont, before we reached the US-Canada border. Going through the border was also a breeze, and we soon found ourselves looking at French signage on Canadian land.
We made a quick pit stop to see the beautiful abbey at Saint Benoit Du Lac, and because they have an on site cheese making facility, we couldn’t leave without purchasing some cheese to take with us.
We scored the absolute BEST Airbnb in Quebec. I mean, this place was AMAZING! It was sparkling clean and beautifully furnished with a modern, neutral aesthetic. It was conveniently located close to many restaurants, shops and landmarks within walking distance. It was VERY well stocked with amenities, blackout shades in every bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen, and double paned windows to block out noise. The host definitely knew hospitality, and made sure that any guest staying in his home would be comfortable.
I can’t emphasize enough how much we loved our Airbnb, and would highly recommend this place to families visiting Quebec!
We only had a few days in Quebec, and the weather was on the cold and rainy side, so we didn’t do a whole lot. But, we did hit some of the landmarks, such as the historic Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac, La Citadelle de Quebec, and Montmorency Falls.
We also ate lots of delicious food, such as its famous poutines, and we discovered the absolute best onion soup and french crepes at a place call Le Billig Creperie-Bistro.
We also discovered a beautiful all-white library in Quebec called the Maison de la Litterature library, and even though all the books are in French, the library is so pretty it’s worth checking out!
After our few days in Quebec City, Bridge and I drove about 2.5 hours west to the city of Montreal! Blog post on that coming up next…
