The Chateau Fontenac in Quebec City is Canada's most photographed hotel and the city's most famous landmark. Chateau means castle. This luxurious hotel of 610 rooms and guest suites has perched atop Cape Diamond since the late 19th century and many famous people have stayed there. At an average price of $600 CA per night, I did not stay there but wandered through the lobby pretending like I was a famous guest there too.

The Plains of Abraham are approximately 2.4 kilometers in length which I walked one morning while recreating in my mind the battle of September 13, 1759. In 1759 the fate of New France hung in the balance as French and British troops (the generals Malcolm and Wolfe) clashed on the Plains of Abraham. The French defeat would long remain a painful memory, and both generals succumbed from battle injuries along with many others. Today, history is kept alive through monuments, statues, museums and information boards. The Plains of Abraham while a key tourist destination is also heavily used by locals and tourists alike for jogging and running, ball games, socializing and walking and admiring the views of the St. Lawrence River below.

From the Observatoire De La Capitale, Old Quebec City looks like a model village from a toy train set. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985, Old Quebec City is the most intact fortified town north of Mexico, retaining its colonial architecture for over 400 years. It is the birthplace of French North America. There are many cafes, and shops. Yes, there is poutine, crepes, great coffee, and maple syrup everywhere. There is also Maple Sugar Pie! Old Quebec City is so fun to explore, and there are many walking tours and events to take in.

Old Quebec (French: Vieux-Quebec) is a historic neighbourhood of Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. Comprising the Upper Town (French: Haute-Ville) and Lower Town (French: Basse-Ville). The Lower Town is along the river, and is the original, older part of town, lots of nice restaurants, hotels and the Musee de la Civilisation is located there. To get to the Upper town which is larger with even more restaurants and hotels such as the Chateau de Frontenac you can walk up steep streets, many stairs or take the Funicular, a rail elevator that takes you up the cliff in a sort of gondola from the Lower Town to the Upper Town. It was such nice weather while I was there, that I used the stairs or walked the streets. Afterall, I needed to burn off the crepe habit that occurred while I was there.

From the Observatoire De La Capitale this is the view from the west. It looks beyond old Quebec to the modern city of high rises and highways. There are many more neighborhoods to explore beyond the fortified walls of Old Quebec City and were interesting as they were not tourist focused, I had to speak more French and the cafes and shopping were just as marvelous as that within the walls, reflecting more the daily life of those living in this great city!
