Québec City is a prime destination for authentic travel experiences. I think you’ll agree that the city’s ageless beauty, larger-than-life events, vibrant culture, and delicious food make it pretty well irresistible. Here are my suggestions for new activities and gorgeous meals that will give the likes on your travel photos a major boost.

1 Québec City’s Latest Architectural Gem

Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec has a new do: a new pavilion with a remarkably bold and modern design. The pavilion houses a new collection of works and a new place for foodies, Tempéra Québecor signed Marie-Chantal Lepage. The menu, by award-winning chef Marie-Chantal Lepage, takes you on a memorable culinary journey that’s impeccably simple, creative, and flavourful.

2 New Sights in the Old City

Urban exhibit Unusual Passages is a visual feast that turns the Petit-Champlain and Old Port on their heads. Discover a new side of Old Québec on this outdoor art walk that takes you past plenty of high-end restaurants with inspired menus, including Toast!, Chez Muffy, Laurie Raphaël, Initiale, and L'Échaudé.

3 Québec’s Chillest Building in Town

Dive into Québec’s literary heritage at Maison de la littérature. After all that food for thought, you’ll want to treat yourself to the real thing at La Bûche, a restaurant that serves up delicious interpretations of Québec classics.

4 Best-Kept Secrets

Like microbreweries? With Broue-Tours, you can visit 3 of them, taste their products, and get an inside look at a brew room. The tour will land you in Saint-Sauveur, a.k.a., Saint‑So, which is pretty much where it’s at. Stroll along and try one of the neighbourhood’s hip-and-happening restaurants: Le Pied bleu, Griendel, Kraken Cru, or Le Renard et La Chouette.

5 Take Time & Unwind

Le Monastère des Augustines, recently named the world’s best destination for those looking for a mental and physical reboot by National Geographic Traveler, offers an equally iconic, historic experience. This former monastery was closed to the public for four centuries before being carefully renovated as a wellness destination with modern architectural features. You’ll be delighted by the unique museum, peaceful accommodations, and restaurant focused on local organic fare.

Have a wonderful trendy stay in Québec City!
