Rue du Petit Champlain officially Canada’s prettiest street

Where’s the prettiest street in Canada?
it’s official – Quebec City,s rue du Petit Champlain has been crowned Canada’s prettiest street for 2014.

Quebec City (Quebec) 10 November 2014 – The results of the national survey from Great Places in Canada, sponsored by the Canadian Institute of Planning are in and Quebec City has a winner.

It has been declared by the Institute that the prettiest street in Canada for 2014 is rue du Petit Champlain situated in the lower town of Old Quebec.

Every year the Institute asks people what neighbourhood, street, park etc. is their most favourite place in the country and the results are tallied and announced in November.

This year Quebec City was honoured for its street in first place and the whole Quartier Petit-Champlain came in second as the prettiest neighbourhood. Le Quartier itself came in first in 2011.

The street this year won not only the jury selection but, also the people’s choice award. There is no prize given out for the win, but it makes for great publicity in the tourist reviews and magazines.

The merchants on the street are happy to get the news but, would like to point out that although the street is known mostly for its attraction to tourists, it is also a great place for the local population to come and hang out and do some unique shopping.

Not only are there some souvenir shops; the street is also lined with fine restaurants, specialty boutiques and even a stage theatre.

The famous mountainside elevator also leaves from the street itself and with the beautiful Chateau Frontenac as a backdrop the photo possibilities are spectacular.

Bienvenue au Petit Champlain, a truly special place.
