Conserve Cash in Quebec City

Posted December 30, 2009 by Kate Hamman

Canada-pq-quebeccity-def Learn about Quebec's past at a museum before dining at a restaurant that creates traditional and provocative Quebecois dishes at an affordable price. Then return to your room, where the package deal is almost as nice as its location.

Musée de la Civilisation: When it comes to learning about Quebec's history, people, and land, the Musée de la Civilisation wins a gold star as the place to get your education. The permanent exhibits include "Territoires," an in-depth look at the interaction between Quebec's inhabitants and nature; "People of Quebec...Then and Now," a display of events and history from New France to today; and "Encounters with First Nations," an introduction to the 11 First Nations who inhabit Quebec today. Admission costs $11 CAD (about $10.50 U.S., check for current exchange rates) per person.

Aux Anciens Canadiens: Set in a building dating back to 1675, Aux Anciens Canadiens provides a true taste of Quebec and its history. Taking pride in its welcoming hospitality, the restaurant prepares regional dishes such as Caribou cooked with a creamy blueberry wine sauce. À la carte items may seem a little high, starting at $28.75 CAD, but the complete menu is a downright steal. You get an entree of your choice, served with an appetizer, soup, dessert, and coffee or tea. The maple pie alone is worth every penny. Complete menu prices start at $39.75 CAD.

Hôtel du Vieux Québec: Just a stone's throw from the iconic Le Chàteau Frontenac in the heart of the Old City, you'll find Hôtel du Vieux Québec and your key to a happy vacation. Each of the 44 rooms is decorated with patterns created by Quebec artists, giving the hotel a local feel. Breakfast baskets are delivered to your room, so you can enjoy your meal and cup of coffee in bed. Rooms start at about $126 CAD during the off-season, and packages are available throughout the year.
