We just got back home from a wonderful trip to Quebec!
We decided we wanted to get out of town (and I guess out of the country) for a winter break with our girls.
Quebec is a fabulous city! In the winter, it is truly a fairy tale with snow everywhere. We had to pack very warm clothes as some days it was freezing, but we were able to brave the cold since we bought snow rated boots and coats and definitely layered up. Hot cocoa and mulled wine helped too!
Check out my recommendations on where to stay, eat, and more.
