Quebec City and Montmorency Falls
Posted: April 25, 2015 - 12:51 pm

As the weather improves and gas prices remain somewhat reasonable, planning a road trip might enter your thoughts. If you crave getting beyond the borders of our two little towns, nee the borders of our country, consider a visit to Quebec City and a side trip to Montmorency Falls. While known for its winter carnival and famous ice hotel, the city is a marvelous destination in warmer weather, perfect for families, couples or single travelers. Travel services abound and tourist offices are readily available, staffed with English speaking assistants.
