Plains of Abraham
This timeless city, the capital of Quebec, has the romantic soul of France and the modern spirit of Canada. For travel enthusiast Pamela MacNaughtan, Quebec City is home. And if you want to know a city’s best spots, ask a local.
“The best place to spend time outdoors in my city is at the Plains of Abraham,” MacNaughtan says in her I Heart My City guide. “It’s the perfect place for relaxing, reading, having a picnic, or even a lazy Sunday nap.”
The Plains, site of a 1759 battle between the French and the British, is a vast green space on the 255-acre grounds of Battlefields Park.
