Trip Planner:   Canada  /  Quebec  /  Quebec City  /  Terrasse Dufferin

Terrasse Dufferin, Quebec City

A stroll along the wide boardwalk of Terrasse Dufferin brings to light the area's colonial cannons, the grand architecture of Chateaux Forntenac, and views of the St. Lawrence River. Artists and performers frequent this terrace in summer with entertainment, and it's a good place to find and souvenirs. Watch for a revealed archeological site that offers glimpses of the excavated remains of the fort beneath. Take the guesswork out of planning a Quebec City vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Where to stay in Quebec City

Most accommodations cluster on the west side of the St. Lawrence River, with the city's split-level old town offering the widest range of options and best access to top attractions. Stay in the upper town to be close to the castle and enjoy views over the river. What the lower town lacks in panoramas, it makes up for in historic charm and access to riverside cafes and restaurants. If you want a less-touristy experience, consider the up-and-coming neighborhood of St. Roch, whose cafes, bars, restaurants, and artistic spaces make it an alternative traveler's paradise.
