I need your help. My sister and her beau are going to be visiting your fair city the first week in September. Neither of them have ever been there before and my one visit was a one day trip to a Winter Carnival in 1966 when I was in the USAF. I remember very little of that adventure, but my friends told me I seemed to be enjoying myself.
They will be staying at the Frontenac, will have a car, like taking walks, seeing beautiful sights, shopping, and (of course) good food. Folks say that 70 is the new 50 and that definitely holds true for these two.
This "event" coincides with Sister's birthday and, along with a copy of Fodor's Quebec and an envelope of cash, I'd like to include a printout of this thread that (hopefully) will be chock full of tips and info that may not be in the book. Whether you're a native or a many-time visitor, I know you can come up with enough suggestions to keep them busy for a good part of their stay.
Since this is ChowHound, dining is the focal point and it doesn't need to be fancy. A great bakery, a wonderful coffee house, or a place where some local speciality can be found. It's all good. Shopping is, at least for my sister, equally important. Clothes, jewelry, or a special place to find unique, quality gifts for her to bring home to family.....these would be most welcome. I suppose most of the "sights" will be in Fodor's, but here too something unusual would be very cool.
I'll have to get this in the mail early next week so there are a few days to get it done. I'll put the printout with a special card and sign all your names to it. She should get a real kick out of that! Thank you in advance and, if there are any questions, I'll be checking in often.
