Three days off? Destination: Quebec City

Since real life has not started again yet, we suggest that you spend the long Labour Day weekend in Quebec City. Take these three days to see what the city still has to offer! What does a long weekend look like in the Capitale-Nationale? Here is a glimpse that will definitely make you want to hit the road and visit Quebec City:


Friday Night: Food & Music


Start off the weekend with a good meal, and why not let your evening flow to the beat of a music band? The Ginger restaurant, located in the Hotel Plaza Québec, offers this food & music winning duo. Learn more about their show schedule.

Saturday: Beach


There is still a little summer left! On Saturday, grab your swimsuit and sunglasses and hit the beach to enjoy the last hot days. We suggest Lac Saint-Joseph, a beach located 40 km from Quebec City (41 km from Hotel Plaza Québec). You will find there a half-kilometer sandy beach surrounding the largest lake in the region. It is possible to play volleyball, jump on a water bouncer, practice watersports (you may rent motorized and non-motorized watercrafts), and for the little ones: on-site entertainment. A terrace bar, a convenience store, and a restaurant are also available.

We also suggest that you visit la Baie de Beauport, located 5 minutes away from Hotel Palace Royal. It has everything you need for a full beach day. Watersports lovers will get to do ride paddleboards, catamarans and kite-surf on the Saint Lawrence River. And if you would rather spend your day relaxing, try the hammocks on the shore, it truly is a must!

Sunday: Brunch & Hiking


Start your day with a Sunday brunch at the restaurant where summer lasts forever: Les Palmes. Book your place in advance.

Then, go on an adventure in the middle of nature. You will not be disappointed by all the hiking destinations Quebec City and its surroundings have to offer: Quebec City and its Incredible Hiking Spots.

Monday Morning: Relaxing Spa Day


To make sure you had enough rest before going back home, end your weekend in a calm setting. To relax in the middle of nature, go to Sibéria Spa, at Lac-Beauport’s entrance. Take some time to relax and enjoy their Scandinavian-inspired concept, unique in Quebec City. Many other services are available at Sibéria Spa.

The best destination to enjoy your labour day weekend is Quebec City!
