Our intrepid travel contributor Elaine Labalme continues her trek through the great white north.

This week she talks about Quebec City, capital of the province, where the old buildings reflect classic architecture and vibrant culture.  “It’s very welcoming and it’s a great respite for a few days,” says Labalme.

Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac: “The castle on the hill,” provides gorgeous views and “reeks with charm.” 

Plains of Abraham: Somewhat like Central Park, this space provides room for snowshoeing, ice skating, and calming walks.

Le Pied Bleu: One of the top ten best restaurants in Canada, the restaurant offers many courses often filled with innards and cheese platters.
