NileGuide Expert Says:
During the winter, rent some ice skates and skate around eating taffy on a stick from the street vendors or watch an impromptu hockey game. In the summer, watch street performers or browse the stalls selling their exotic wares.

Place d'Youville, located right at St. John's Gate, is the heart of Quebec City. This square buzzes with concerts in the summer, open-air markets on weekends, intentional and unintentional street performers, and an ice skating rink in the winter. Place d'Youville is also Quebec City's transportation hub, where you can transfer to almost any bus to any destination in the City with every major artery leading here. And if home is where the heart is, then this is where all of Quebec feels right at home!
