We suggest that instead of making the 5 hour drive, you book yourself a train ticket to Quebec City so you can put your feet up, relax and enjoy the trip. 

 

Read a book, watch a movie or just look out and enjoy the scenery as you travel in comfort towards your destination.

QUEBEC CITY WINTER CARNIVAL 

 

Quebec City is home to the World’s Biggest Winter Carnival where you can enjoy the snow sculptures, dog sled races, the Ice Palace, a snow bath and many more carnival activities.

Inside the frozen walls you can enjoy a cornucopia of winter activities that range from rappelling down frozen cascades to even trying ice canoeing… if you are feeling romantic, you can go for a skate together at Place D’Youville’s rink, which is well known for its Old Quebec romantic feel.

After a day outside, you can enjoy great cocktails and an intimate setting (with a spectacular menu) at Legende, a trendy upscale restaurant on Rue Saint Paul. We recommend that you call for reservations in advance to ensure you get a spot at this popular venue in Quebec City. 

 

Nightlife

Maurice Nightclub

75 Grand-allee Est 

 

This very popular nightclub was formerly a three-story mansion that has been converted into 3 floors of dancing and drinks.  

 

If you are headed to Chez Maurice, you should dress to impress. When you’ve had enough of the dancing and music, you can head down to its ‘Societe Cigar’ to enjoy a stogie and smooth jazz for a more relaxed atmosphere, if that is what you are looking for.
