I flew back to Toronto last month to attend Paul’s cousin’s wedding in Kingston. They had this amazing pie instead of a wedding cake and we cruised into the sunset through the 1000 Islands.

But before the festivities, I booked a trip to Quebec City with my sister Amy and spent a fun week eating and exploring our way through La Belle Province and even stopped at this unique spa on a boat on our way home. Quebec City is currently ranked the no. 1 destination in Canada by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine and the walled city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Treasure. Here are a few of our travel tips for Quebec City:

Quebec-Bridge

Getting There – From Toronto there are direct flights on Porter and Air Canada. Otherwise, you can connect from any other city via Montreal. Honda Canada was nice enough to lend us a brand new Honda CRV, so we chose to make a sisters road trip out of it. We left at around 10 AM after the traffic died down and the drive takes about 9 hours. We took our time, made lots of stops along the way including:

Big-Apple-Cobourg

I’m packing my bags and heading to the airport today because I’m off to Quebec City!

Yes, there are some nervous butterflies about getting on an airplane that I talked about recently – but I’m hoping that I can get it under control and not let it overshadow this girls getaway with my sister Amy. I’ll be landing in Toronto first, then picking up our sweet ride – a Honda CRV from our friends at Honda Canada and then making the 8-hour road trip with stops along the way to Quebec City.

One of my first stops will likely be a St. Hubert’s for their chicken + Chez Ashton’s for their poutine!
