Sainte-Foy - Quebec

Just west of historic Quebec City lies the modern and thriving community of Ste-Foy, Quebec. The source of the Greater Quebec City transportation system and home to the Universite Laval, Ste-Foy is a link between the historic and the modern, the big city and the small town. Place Laurier, eastern Canada’s largest mall, is in Ste-Foy, while smaller shopping centres such as Place Ste-Foy also offer everything a shopper could desire, from a wide array of shops to special services for parents of young children.

Ste-Foy is a centre of activity in the Quebec region. Two bridges, Pont de Quebec and Pont Pierre-Laporte, cross the St. Lawrence River from Ste-Foy. An international airport is located in the town, and an impressive aquarium makes its home there. With over 300 species of marine mammals, fish, amphibians, and other creatures from the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, as well as freshwater animals, the Parc Aquarium du Quebec gives a remarkable overview of the richness of marine life.

Special events enrich life in Ste-Foy. Lunch at the Parc Aquarium du Quebec is only one of the activities available, and concerts and festivals also help to fill spare hours. With its proximity to Quebec City, Ste-Foy is also ideal for sightseeing in the provincial capital. With modern conveniences, natural wonders, and much more, Ste-Foy is a good place to stop during any trip to the Quebec region.
