There's Never Been A Better Time To Visit Quebec City's Famous Terrasse Dufferin

Fewer tourists means you can dance along the boardwalk.

There's Never Been A Better Time To Visit Quebec City's Famous Terrasse Dufferin

Quebec City is a pretty amazing place to visit. In fact, we don't wanna brag, but it's the most popular destination in Canada for the fifth year in a row. And whether you've never been before or have already seen it for yourself, if there were ever a time to go, it's now — especially to see Terrasse Dufferin.

While we love showing off la belle province, it can definitely become flooded with tourists.

Especially one of the most iconic spots in the city, Terrasse Dufferin in Old Quebec, with its amazing views of Le Château Frontenac, the most photographed hotel in the world and the St. Lawrence River. 

Located along a 425 metre-long path and 60 metres above the water, you can guess there are some of the most stunning views in the city.

Did you know that two million people walk along the famous boardwalk every year? That's a whole lot of love for our capital!

And as sad as we are that we can't welcome our international friends like we have in summers past, it gives Quebecers the chance to explore their home like a tourist.

Like so many places in the province, it's great year-round. Yes — even in the winter! 

But in the summer, it's an absolute paradise.

Not only is it an incredible walk to see some of the best of the city, and it also makes for a fantastic spot for a picnic as you soak in the history and the aesthetic masterpiece that is Quebec City. 

If you thought the terrasse was amazing in the day, just wait for the sun to set over the water and to watch the day turn to nightfall when the city becomes beautifully lit in a way that can only be described as magical. 

And, Communications Advisor of Public Relations for Quebec Cité confirmed with MTL Blog that Terrasse Dufferin is, in fact, much less touristy right now.

Yeah, we're pretty lucky to get to live so close to one of the world's most beautiful cities.

So, if you've been thinking of going to see the amazing Terrasse Dufferin and all of Quebec City, now's definitely the perfect time to make the trip.

Bon voyage!
