Quebec is a beautiful French-Canadian city. It attracts millions of visitors each year and many fall in love with its charm. Sometimes when traveling, the budget for activities can run low and travelers scramble to find ways to experience a destination without breaking the bank. The good thing is there are plenty of free things people can do in cities. Quebec, in particular, has several ways travelers can spend their time enjoying the sites for free.
Walking through Old Quebec is not only a fantastic way to experience the city, but visitors can spend hours getting lost and wandering. Some of the highlights in this area are the Citadel, Quartier Petit-Champlain and the Notre Dame Basilica. Visitors compare the city to cities in Europe thanks to similar architecture and the cobblestone streets. A day spent walking through Vieux-Quebec probably won’t be entirely money-free due to the amount of cute artisan shops that populate the city.
Another great place to discover is the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupre. It opens everyday at 8 a.m. and is free to the general public. It’s about 22 miles northeast of central Quebec City and was constructed in 1658. The basilica that stands today was built in 1920 after a fire destroyed the original structure. The building honors Saint Anne, the patron saint of Quebec.
