Eté 2008

by samuel2007

Bonsoir, vaut-il mieux Juillet ou Août en été 2008 pour visiter Quebec ?

Re: Eté 2008

by Jefie

Bonjour! Dernièrement, nous avons eu plus de belles journées en août qu'en juillet, mais cela peut changer bien sûr. Au mois de juillet, il y a le Festival d'été de Québec (musique d'ici et d'ailleurs). Je crois qu'en 2008 le festival aura lieu du 3 au 13 juillet. Durant la première semaine d'août, il y a aussi les Fêtes de la Nouvelle France. En 2008, nous célébrerons le 400e anniversaire de la ville alors il devrait y avoir plusieurs activités spéciales au cours de l'été. La programmation complète n'a pas encore été dévoilée, mais vous pouvez consulter le calendrier des activités à l'adresse suivante : http://www.monquebec2008.com/

Merci pour les renseignements et l'adresse du site. Nous ferons un autotour avec moins de distance qu'aux Etat-Unis (plus de 4000 kms en 2 semaines !) et des pauses plus longues sur le trajet pour se reposer. Espérons trouver des divertissements mais aussi du repos.

Pourquoi ne pas revenir: dans 10 ans par exemple !

Travel Tips for Quebec

Chateau Frontenac

by HORSCHECK

Visit the Chateau Frontenac (see photo) and the Terasse Dufferin just next to the Chateau which are definetely the first sights to see in Quebec. The Chateau was built as a hotel in the late 19th century by the General Manager of Canadian Pacific Railway.
The wide boardwalk of Terasse Dufferin has a panoramic view of the St. Lawrence River, the town of Lewis on the opposite shore and the Laurentian Mountains. The Terasse Dufferin leads to the Citadelle up the hill.

Petit-Champlain

by vaara

Depending on your tolerance for fellow tourists (and don't kid yourself, if you're here you ARE a tourist!), you'll either love or hate this little street nestled between the cliff under the Château Frontenac and the Old Port. Fortunately, it's a pedestrian street, so you won't have to dodge cars as in the rest of the old city.

A BIT OF HISTORY : Fifty years...

by LeDragon

A BIT OF HISTORY : Fifty years ago, most people in my region, south of Québec city, lived on farm. But the farming was not enough to take care of their large family ( lots of ten children and even more ). So the men used to go for the winter working in the forest. So today, lots of men around here relate to lumberjack and pretend to know all about the forest ( the myth of 'les coureurs des bois'). And women of Québec are somewhat strongminded and straitforward. Look, their mothers and grandma used to take care of big family and farm, all by themselves for our long winter.

Other largely unknown fact, between 1860 and 1900, half a million french canadians leaved to reach the USA. This departure was close to one third of the Québec province at this time! Most of this population have children now in the New England states of the Union! Stephen King often use french canadian name in his stories !

The Ultimate Travel Companion!

Before I go on any trip, I always make sure to purchase a travel guidebook, epecially from the National Geographic Traveler series. They not only provide me with important information and advice, but the illustrations contained in their books are simply beautiful.

Wonderful Urban Park..Montmorency Park

by Greggor58

I easily stumbled across this little gem of a park while avoiding the stairs from the Lower Town to the Upper Town...in fact the location is significant historically and within the park is a monument to the first "settlers" of New France and a historical site placard set here by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada...

Its significant lies in the fact that between 1850 and 1866 the Parliament of the Province of Canada was located here in a building where the park is today.. In this time period the Capital was alternating between Toronto and Quebec...a political issue intended to preserve some appeasement between English and French Canada.

The Quebec legislative Assembly was also located here until a fire destroyed the building in 1883...

There is a statue placed here honoring Louis Hebert who it is believed is the first European to build a home and establish a farm in what is now Canada.
Louis Hebert and his wife Marie Rolet arrived in New France in 1617...in fact three years before the Mayflower arrived in Plymouth...
On the back side of the statue is a plaque honoring the earliest families to establish themselves in New France...

There is also a statue of George Etienne Cartier....this man was a political figure who was instrumental in various transactions that made the Colony of Canada stronger in a time of growing American influence in North America,particularly The Confederation of the Canadian Provinces and Territories...

It is set just on the cliffs overlooking the St.Lawrence River I guess it would be North East of the Chateau.

Its a beautiful little green space set on the fringes of the hustle and bustle of Old Quebec...
