My Absolute Favourite Photos Of Quebec City

Although I will forever and ever be team Montreal (a girl’s gotta represent, yo), I have to give Quebec City some well-deserved credit. The only walled city north of Mexico keeps luring tourists in, enticing them with its old-world charm, its European flair, and, of course, its undeniably photogenic attributes.

And when you’re admiring the view from the waterfront or walking on some of America’s oldest streets, it’s hard to argue. The city knows how to please without even trying. If Quebec City was a girl, she’d be the kind of #flawless girl who wakes up in the morning without a hint of a zit and a breath that doesn’t smell and hair that feels like the fur of a newborn golden retriever. If Quebec City was a girl, I’d hate her instantly, out of sheer jealousy.

To prove my point, here are the 27 best photos of Quebec City out of the 1000+ I’ve taken over the years. I could’ve been more selective, but I presumed you wouldn’t really mind the overload ;-) There are worst things in life than too many photos of this gorgeous town.

    Nice photos! The Parc du Bastion de la Reine is one of my favorite spots to shoot Chateau Frontenac.
