A Day In Quebec City

Quebec City

Summer is finally gone and fall is in full effect. The Jacq’s Organics Team took a mini vacation to Canada and we are sharing our family pictures with you. Living in South Florida, we don’t normally experience the beauty of fall. But in Quebec City, the beauty and colors of fall is undeniable. This quaint and historical city is one of the oldest cities in North America where you will find a castle, enchanting cabal streets, French-Canadian cafe’s, boutiques and more.

In Quebec City, the primary language is French and a very small population speak English. But you will get by pretty well because everyone we meet spoke both languages.  Frankly with the delicious French-Canadian food you really won’t care. Believe me when I say that you really won’t care with the outstanding variety of food like escargot topped with cheese (it’s delicious), freshly baked bread, delicious fruit flavored beer and local wine.  Here’s a list of my travel essentials:

Travel Essentials Fall 2013

1. Comfy shoes – feet liberation with tennis shoes for lots of walking. Our pick the classicconverse.

2. Capture every moment with a Nikon camera.

3. Stay cool and warm with a cute versatile scarf. Gotta love polka dots.

Quebec City in the Fall.1

A day in Quebec City is not enough time to properly experience all that this beautiful city has to offer. But we definitely enjoyed the beautiful colors of the maple leaves, the cool breeze and meet the most pleasant Québécois that greet you, “Bonjour!”,  in the streets as we walked by. Au revoir mes amis…
