I haven’t been to Canada since I was 12 so it was really nice to spend some quality time with my family out there, especially my grandma. She just turned 91 not too long ago!

My mom and I also spent the most of our time going on a road trip to Quebec. Our first stop was the lovely Mont-Tremblant, which I found out about through a friend who raved about the gorgeous fall foliage. Shortly after, we spent a day in Montreal. But my favorite part of our trip was our final stop in Quebec City.

We started off the day in Quebec City by fueling up on croissants and coffee at La Maison Smith. It was the perfect stop because we were just steps away from Petite Champlain, one of the more notable neighborhoods. The brick streets and quaint shops were charming all around.

As we continued to hit all the sights, along the way I got an amazing shot of Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac. This beautiful hotel reminds me of that Ed Sheeran song about a castle on the hill. With the trees showing signs of fall at the park nearby, it just felt absolutely perfect to be in Quebec at this time of the year.

After walking around town, we worked ourselves quite an appetite. When you’re in Quebec, you eat poutine. And one of theย bestย spots for poutine is Le Chic Shack. Ok, I have actually not tried much poutine before, but my research online said Le Chic Shack was the place to go. Between this and the poutine I had in Montreal, hands down Le Chic Shack gets it right.

As the sun was going down, I made a point to head over to Jacques-Cartier National Park. The drive alone was amazing, with hills filled with red, orange and yellow trees. We arrived close to sunset and the colors were so vivid that the photos just don’t do it justice.

After a quick drive around the park, we headed to dinner over at Cochon Dingue and it was probably one of my favorite meals of the trip. My mom had a quinoa salad and I indulged in a croque monsieur. Also, the hot chocolate was an absolute treat. It was the perfect way to end the day!

Quebec City is a place that could be written into a fairytale. This colorful town draws you in with it’s inviting little shops and delightful neighborhoods. I highly recommend this place and hope to get the chance to return in the future.

Heyyyy Megan! So awesome that you made it up to Canada! Isn’t it lovely? And so glad you had poutine! Quebec City is so gorgeous…but Montreal is my favourite actually. Nice little escape that feels a little like Paris (but so does QC)!! Love the outfit too!

Reply

I forgot you’re in the Canada area! I didn’t see much in Montreal but that’s because I barely had time to explore so I will definitely try once again when I make my way back. There was a few places I missed that I would love to see like Ottawa and a few surrounding lakes. Definitely going to try to make my way back there again!

Reply

Obsessed with your outfit choices, and the Fall colours! I’ve only been to Montreal but never Quebec City or Mont-Tremblant (which I hear are much nicer with more to do!) Sounds like you had a great time in Canada! Xo

Reply

Aww! I am glad you had a chance to spend some time with your family. I have never been to Canada but your photos are inspiring to go visit!

It is wonderful that you were able to go visit your family, and what a great time of year to be there. The beautiful fall colors make a lovely backdrop for you photos. Love the plaid skirt, you reminded me to get my fall skirt out, as fall is totally in full force here with winter not far behind so I better wear those plaid short skirts before it snows! We would like to travel across Canada one day to see all the gorgeous nature along the way, and the different architecture.

Reply

Wow, looks beautiful! You could frame that photo with the beautiful Fall foliage in the background of that cute house! I’ve never been to Quebec but how fun is it you got to go again and loved it. Love the plaid skirt paired with the top!
