Top Tips to a Fun Winter Weekend Getaway in Quebec City

Circa 1884 slide near Chateau Frontenac
Good food, Great friends, Best destination We love our kids. Honest. Now, that said, many moons ago we discovered that one of the best way to rejuvenate from the ongoing pull of parenthood is getting together with old friends or going on our own to explore a new city. We know from heading often to Mount Ste. Anne that nothing quite matches Quebec City in wintertime. Sure, going during Winter Carnival is an absolute blast.

Why We Are Visiting Places That Will Likely Disappear In Our Lifetime

The Many Faces of Travel When we finally made the decision to take this trip around the world, a big part of the planning process became "where do we want to go?" Each family member was given a choice of 3 priority destinations that would fulfill a lifelong dream of theirs. If you could pick 3 places to travel in the world, where would you go? Our loose, plan not to plan itinerary is to see the world in all its glory. Yet we realized that many of the places we wanted to see are also ones that are being threatened
