Snow in Spring at Old Quebec, Canada
Old Quebec is a UNESCO world heritage treasure that is rich with history. Clustered around the city's harbor on the banks of the St. Lawrence River are the quaint stone buildings and narrow, winding streets of Old Québec. Attractions such as, Notre-Dame Basilica and Quartier Petit-Champlain are a must see. Quebec City streets feels like being in Europe due to is charming artisans shops and cafes.

When you hear Spring Break, people often think of going somewhere warm. My friends and I decided to make Old Quebec our Spring Break destination.
When we arrived, it was cold! I mean COLD. It was a beautiful view seeing all the snow. Locals said this was the longest winter they've ever had for many years and definitely one of the coldest. Even though it was freezing cold, Old Quebec was still absolutely beautiful.

"Let's go!" Me: absolutely not going to slide down again! XD

The view of the harbor with the ice covering it was spectacular!
Sledding was so much fun!
Had to drag this one all the way up the stairs. ;)
The beautiful Chateau Frontenac
