FG Video Itinerary: Quebec City With Kids
With it’s sophisticated French food, museum culture and focus on local history, Quebec City didn’t at first glance seem like the ideal place to travel with a 4-year-old. But we spent the better part of a week there and found plenty of activities that kept us and Tiny Traveler well fed and highly entertained. Check out the video and see the list of places in the video below.
• Upper and Lower Old Town, Quebec City: The heart of Quebec City. You’ll spend a lot of time wandering the narrow streets looking for fairy tale characters.
• The Chateau Frontenac Hotel: It looks like a castle and TT loved exploring the giant lobby looking for the resident princess.
•The Museum of Civilization: The hands-on Once Upon A Time exhibit is the ideal choice for kids 8 and under if you have a rainy day. Kids 8 and up will like experiencing an earthquake and playing with tornados in the hands-on Earth Unveiled exhibit (be prepared for all the interaction to be in French, of course).
• Les Halles du Petit Quartier: 1191 Avenue Cartier, near the Plains of Abraham. Local and homemade food, coffee, snacks. Great place to stock up for a picnic.
• The old town Funicular, the Montmorency Falls gondola (there’s a playground at the top of the gondola and down below on the far side of the falls), The Québec–Lévis Ferry across the St. Lawrence River.
