  • Foodie in Quebec City
    Allison Van Rassel is an accomplished radio and television journalist, and she’s also the author of the blog Foodie in Quebec City. The name of her blog says it all: she’s a food lover, and one of our city’s best culinary ambassadors. She refreshingly writes with honesty about the city’s restaurant scene (meaning she tells it all: the good, the bad, and the ugly!), and also conducts in depth taste tests to unearth the city’s very best. Read all of Allison’s Restaurant Reviews.

    Quebec City’s tourism office has launched a dedicated website for what is certainly the most popular neighborhood among travelers, the Old Quebec. The site separates the area into six smaller districts and provides historic information, videos, photos, and walk itineraries for each.
