When new clients come to the Manoir and ask me about the beautiful things there are to visit in the area, I send them to take a stroll around the streets of Old Quebec, see the Chateau Frontenac, the St. Lawrence River, The Petit Champlain … these are the essential tourist attractions in Quebec City, any guide will confirm this. But what I also enjoy doing is sending our visitors out of the fortifications and into the Saint-Jean-Baptiste district. Less touristy, there are many small treasures!
With its bakeries, its roasting of coffee, its specialty stores, and its many neighborhood bars, Saint-Jean Street in Quebec is a pillar for anyone living there. Not to mention the many hair salons and boutiques, jewelry and shoe stores that make the street a must-see for shoppers. Visitors will be charmed by the local aspect of Saint-Jean-Baptiste and will immediately feel like they are part of its inhabitants.
