Its an easy walk compared to scaling the steep streets in old Quebec. you can park easily $2.50 and walk straight onto the site. the view across quebec is stunning and over to the far bank of the st laurence river. there are good guides...More

We discovered this area while we were driving close to the Citadel. It is actually a huge park/garden with a lookout to the bay or river. Nice photo op.

Took a carriage ride through old Quebec and went by the plains. Beautiful spot, decided to go back on foot to see closer.

Beautiful park just past downtown. Great nature trail pointing out local plants. Great views of the Saint Lawrence.

this place is historically significant so don't miss it. The park is big and beautifully landscaped but otherwise not a ton going on here. They say that it's Quebec City's version of Central Park.

We walked the Plains of Abraham every morning during our trip. There were plenty of great views and interesting historical sites to keep us entertained.

The Plains of Abraham is a pleasant park with a nice flower garden, walking paths, and an associated museum covering the battle between the British and French in the mid-1700s.. In late May the tulips in the garden were spectacular.

We were on a bus tour so maybe not the best way to give an unbiased view. However, the city was preparing for a festival, which part of it will be taking place here. There is also a lot of construction going on in town...More

There is a covered area with the history over looking the St. Lawrence River. Many soccer fields and trails for running. Understand a major battle between the French and English took place here. Very difficult to capture as it involved scaling a huge cliff.

A definite thumbs up on our visit to Quebec City on a beautiful sunny day. The City have made a great job of showcasing the military history of the area. My husband really enjoyed this!

The hotel is located in the heart of the upper town. Convenient and easy walking distance from all the sites above and easy to access via "funiculaire" to the lower town.
