- Most Montreal locals love a quick weekend trip down to La Capitale, which is why MTL Blog made a list of nine indoor things to do in Quebec City.
- The cold of winter doesn't have to stop you from exploring!
- Find out what you can get up to in our province's capital below!
With the temperature at its very worst here in La Belle Province, it can be hard to come up with fun things to do either on a date or when you're looking for something fun to do with friends. It's especially hard to find fun things to do that aren't just wandering through countless museums, which is why we came up with this list of nine indoor things to do Quebec City.
The activities on this list are perfect a rainy day (or a freezing cold day), and they aren't just drinks and a movie.
Not that there's anything wrong with catching a flick and then hitting up a fun bar - because there are certainly a ton of places in Quebec City worth grabbing a cocktail.
But if you're looking to think outside the box a little bit and maybe have a little more fun than the staple drinks and a movie, this list is for you.
From arcades to water parks and a bunch in between (plus a museum or two, but nothing boring... this is a pretty historic city, after all) there's bound to be something on this list for everyone, whether this is your first time in La Capitale or not.
