Quebec and environs

Jump to last reply

Way back in the mists of time, or more precisely the early 1970's, we lived in upstate NY and would drive to Quebec City for long weekends. We plan to visit again this summer, taking a train to Buffalo (we have Amtrak credits to use up) and renting a car from there. During our past visits we we enjoyed staying on a street - I do not recall its name - that was a short walk from the Chateau Frontenac and had many B&Bs. Does such a street sound familiar? We would like to stay there again for nostalgia if the B&Bs are still there and still nice. Does anyone have a clue as to what street that was?

We would also always take a side trip to St Jean-Port Joli where we enjoyed browsing the craft shops and would pick up some nice wood carvings. Back then these towns were small, one could say quaint, not touristy at all. I know that there are still craft shops there, but was wondering how the character of towns may have changed over the years.

Any input is appreciated.
