Family Travel // Montmorency Falls

November 11, 2015

I’m excited to share a little more on our trip to Canada today!  Be sure to check out my last post all about Quebec City.
While visiting Quebec City, in Canada, we decided to visit some surrounding areas.  Our first stop was Montmorency Falls.  The falls were magnificent and very impressive!  It is hard to see how large they are from the pictures, but they are stunning and fall from 272 feet, that’s 99 feet higher than Niagara Falls if you need a reference!

My little adventure crew was very serious about our explorations.  Always consulting the maps and planning our routes.  
They took us on the bridge over the falls for a breathtaking view, then through the park and down the large set of over 400 stairs.  My little crew, as you can see in the photo above conquered all the stairs and stood at the feet of the beautiful falls.  Mom was a little wiser knowing what goes down must come up, so I watched from the stairs while they got soaked in the falls, and loved every minute of it!
Here are a few things you may want to know before visiting Montmerency Falls Park.
Montmorency Falls Park: Visitor Info
Time: You’ll want to spend at least 2 hours there.  
Where to Park:  We parked at the top at the Manoir Montmorency Restaurants.  There is a parking fee, but it has a nice entrance to the top of the falls and the bridge.  You can also walk around at the park, and you don’t have to go to the bottom of the falls if you choose not to.
Open: Grounds open daily year round.  Closed December 24, 25.
Website:  Montmorency Falls Park (in French)
Tips: Packing a picnic and staying a while would be a good idea!  They have beautiful grounds, parks, picnic tables, and play areas/ playgrounds for children.  Strollers may not be a good idea if you are planning on going down any of the stairs to view the waterfalls better.  There are paved trails, and the bridge that would be stroller friendly.  
If you are ever in the Quebec city area, I strongly suggest to go!  It was a very beautiful and the grounds were very nice to explore!  The kids loved it!
