We had a day trip, driving from Quebec city to Fjord du Saguenay. On the way we visited Sainte Anne de Beaupré, Canyon Sainte Anne, Cap Tourmente National Wildlife Area, Canyon De La Rivier Mars and we slept on Saint Siméon.
Oh, how we waited to visit this charming city… and the bigger the expectation, the bigger the disappointment. We were tired from the long drive, the weather was cold and the fact that we spent the night out of town, far away I should add, didn't help… So after a short meeting and discussion of the family board we decided we have to try again later on, after we will visit Gaspe Peninsula. We promised ourselves we will stay in a 5 stars hotel in the old city (preferably Chateau Frontenac), dine in one of the best restaurant in town and the next day go up for a brunch in L’Astral, the revolving restaurant at the top of the tower… but will come back to that later in the post.
The next day we got up and headed to Canada Wonderland (formally known as “Paramount Amusement Park”). It’s the first and largest theme park in the country, including a water park and more than 50 different rides.
