The Hôtel de Glace (Ice Hotel) in Québec City has been a must-see for visitors since first opening in 2001. The hotel is located about 10 minutes outside of the city and is generally open each winter from January through late March.
I recently had the opportunity to explore festive Québec City over the final weekend of Winter Carnival. I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing first-hand how the people of Québec embrace winter and enjoy the outdoors no matter the weather. I didn't realize winter could be so much fun!
This is a guest post written by my 10 year-old daughter, Emma, who is eager to share her thoughts about some of the destinations that we visit as part of the series that we call Emma's Favourite Things.
I recently spent a few days in Québec City over the final weekend of the 2014 Winter Carnival. I had previously visited in the summer with my family but this was the first time that I had ever been during winter and I discovered that the city has a unique charm and beauty when covered with snow.
My favourite family tradition is the post-Christmas getaway that we gift ourselves each year. This past year, we left cold and snowy Toronto on December 27th to fly to Fort Lauderdale for a holiday cruise in the Caribbean aboard the Crown Princess. Our first port of call was Princess Cays in the Bahamas.
