Wondering what to do in Quebec City for Easter? Here are our top 5 best suggestions:
1- Easter Brunch
Many families will receive for Easter and will be cooking a traditional ham and give children goodies and chocolates. If you do not feel like cooking, several restaurants offer lavish brunch for Easter. Le Champlain restaurant definitely offers the most majestic brunches in the city of Quebec, if not in the entire province. Otherwise, brunch at the Manoir Montmorency and the Aquarium also can be considered. If you opt for Champlain, then you can stretch your legs by taking a walk in the Old Quebec or on the Plains of Abraham. If you choose the Manoir Montmorency, you can admire the impressive Montmorency Falls and walk the trails adjacent. And finally if you go for for the brunch at the Aquarium, the price includes the tour around the site. So it is worth it!
2- Chocolate Museum
You want to teach your family about chocolate? A visit to the Chocolate Museum Erico is not to be missed! You will learn all about chocolate: its origins, the manufacturing steps, its properties, and will be able to taste it and buy it on the spot!
