A Day at the Beach

Observe the Butterflies
For over ten years, the Butterfly Aviary at the domaine de Maizerets in Québec City is open to the public. The goal of this fun and educational activity is to teach people about the insect world (butterflies in particular) and underscore the importance of conservation. Visitors can speak to the team of entomologist-guides at an outdoor gazebo, where 150 to 300 local and exotic species of butterflies live in a hanging net structure.
Experience the Spirit of the Season
Holiday magic is truly that in the Old City.
Walking through the Old City under its blanket of snow is like stepping into a life-size Christmas village with its trees, shops, and lamp-posts all decked out in twinkling lights.
In this fairytale atmosphere, oldtime carols and story-tellers welcome you to the Petit-Champlain district.
Near the Château Frontenac, don't miss the Boutique de Noël on rue de Buade and the skating rink at place D'Youville!
