Visit Quebec City
Best Time To Go
Quebec is warm and vibrant from June through September. Temperatures peak in time for the tourist season in July and August and are often accompanied by humidity. But travelers looking to visit Quebec City who don’t mind the cold can experience the destination as a quieter winter wonderland, with tons of festivals and activities. Snow often blankets the city between December and April. And each year the city hosts its jolly Winter Carnival to celebrate the season.
There are buses and taxis but Quebec City is a walking city. Many of the winding cobblestoned streets are too narrow for cars, so plan your footwear appropriately. There’s also a ferry that runs seven days a week and links Quebec City with Levis.
July is the hottest month, with an average high of 76°F (25°C), and the coldest is January, with an average high of 19°F (-7°C).
Know Before You Go
With some of the strictest language laws in the world, French is the dominant language both spoken and on all signs and menus. But if you start speaking English, most locals will respond in English as well.
