There are so many different areas in Quebec City to go for a beautiful walk; however, they do not offer the broad, level broadwalk that you find on Terrassee Dufferin. The walkway begins in front of the Chateau Frontenac along the St. Lawrence River and...More

This wide wooden boardwalk with its green and white striped awnings makes you think of the 1920's beach resorts. Great place to people watch

It's a must do when in Quebec City. Just take a leisurely stroll down the Terrasse Dufferin and get a beautiful view of the St. Lawrence river and the Chateau Frontenac.

Located above the Old Port, this walkway parallel to the St Lawrence River, just below the Hotel Frontenac is iconic. No visit to the Old City is complete without doing this walk.

A must go. Enjoyed the walk along the water. The entertainment on the pier was talented. They all must be approved before performing in the streets so it not just anyone. It was a nice walk and by the water was great.

A must see when you are in Vieux Quebec. Like the city itself, it is rich in history, and is a popular holiday destination during winter. From the boardwalk you see the beautiful Chateau Frontenac on one side, and a calming view of the river...More
