Enjoy Spring in Quebec City
Warm weathers are finally here, and this time they are here for good. Get inspired by these five suggestions to discover incredible places to enjoy the sun in Quebec City during the spring.
A Blooming Orchard
No need to wait for September to come to visit an orchard! From mid-May onwards, apple orchards are blooming with flowers all over Quebec City and its surroundings. Take a moment to admire the thousands of pink and white flowers and let yourself be charmed by the magic of spring.
Suggestion: head over to the Cidrerie Verger Bilodeau on the Île-d’Orléans and take the opportunity to tour the island. Fun and wonder are on the agenda!

A Baseball Game
The new season of Quebec City’s baseball team, the Capitales (website available in French only) begins on May 17!

The Ice-Cream Parlour
An outing at the ice-cream parlour; now that is a timeless classic. The first ice cream cone of the year marks for the most part the official return of warm weathers. No matter the time of day, it is always a good time to enjoy an ice-cold delight.
A personal favourite: The Bûche Glacée (website available in French only) in Beauport offers unique ice cream cones as well as their famous ice cream rolls, all very much appreciated by local people. Take the opportunity to eat your ice cream while admiring the Montmorency Falls, which is a few minutes away from the ice-cream parlour.

The village of Trait-Carré
A place still unknown to many people, Trait-Carré is a heritage site in the district of Charlesbourg with many attractions. As the only star-shaped village in Canada, it origins back to the New France. Fans of architecture, outdoors and nature; you will certainly be charmed! Have a look at a city map and you will understand where the name is coming from!
Extra: The Moulin des Jésuites (website available in French only) in Charlesbourg is currently presenting an exhibition on the former village of Trait-Carré. The timing is perfect!
