Stretch Your Legs at the Shopping Center
Slip your sneakers on—there are over a thousand merchants and shops in Québec City!
In the west end, boulevard Laurier is a must for its three fabulous fashion centers: Laurier Québec, Place de la Cité, and Place Ste-Foy. Flitting between them easily on foot, you'll find absolutely everything!
Want to mix some entertainment into your shopping experience? Between one try-on session and the next, Galeries de la Capitale has what it takes—North America's second largest indoor amusement park, complete with rides, the country's largest IMAX screen, and movie theatres too.
Other malls, like Fleur de Lys, are within easy reach, just a few minutes from downtown. It's hard to know what to try next!
Strolling through quartier Petit-Champlain
In the heart of North America's oldest shopping district, you'll fall under the spell of cobblestone streets and historic homes, some of which date back to the 17th century.
Soak up the authentic surroundings and European atmosphere as you admire the window displays and browse the eclectic array of boutiques dedicated to fashion and the decorative arts.
In winter, the district turns into a magical fairyland decked out in snow, holiday decorations, and twinkling lights.
With your new-found treasures in tow, you'll appreciate the warmth of the local bistros and restaurants all the more.
Visit quartier Petit-Champlain for a shopping experience like no other!
