1. Champlain (including Rue du Petit-Champlain)
Part of le Vieux-Québec. It doesn’t even compare to Toronto’s Distillery District or Fort York as it is infinitely more charming. Lined with boutique shops, artisan galleries, and restaurants, the street Rue du Petit-Champlain has often been dubbed as the prettiest street in Canada. Despite being so tourist-heavy, you won’t find a single Starbucks, Subway, or McDonald’s here. Yay~
It’s like Toronto’s Harbourfront… only because it’s next to a body of water too. Otherwise, it’s so very different! Again it’s much nicer with lots of little shops.
It’s like Scarborough according to my husband. I’m not sure if I’ve really been here…
It’s like Roncesvalles Village – similar to Saint-Roch but with less hobos… Many international restaurants (Viet, Thai, Mexican, etc.) can be found here!
An example of a suburb: Sainte-Foy
It’s like Mississauga with Laval University being a large version of UTM (brutalist architecture, surrounded by trees, etc.).
The other four suburbs (les banlieues) of Québec City are Les Rivières, La Haute-Saint-Charles, Charlesbourg, and Beauport. I’ve never been to these four suburbs, except Beauport. And look what they’ve got!
