Below are a few recommendations of things to do in Quebec City before or after your kayaking tour
The Airport has great free maps of the city at the information desk, which you will pass on your way out of customs and on the way to the taxi stand. Grab a few of these as they are very helpful in navigation on your own should you choose to walk.
Jazz and Hotel:
If Jazz is top on your list you might look at The Hotel Clarendon as a great spot to stop for a drink and listen to jazz, or as a hotel to spend your extra nights at. It is centrally located and within close walking distance of everything in Vieux-Quebec. It is rumored to have one of the best Jazz bars of the area in the lobby. http://www.hotelclarendon.com/jazz-bar-en.html
Vieux-Quebec or Old Quebec is a simply stunning sector of the City and one that you can spend at least a day exploring. It's comprised of an upper and lower section and is designated as a UNESCO heritage site. You can take guided tours of this part of the city or simply explore it on your own.
“Don’t Miss” in Vieux-Quebec:
Visit Château Frontenac while in Old Quebec
Visit or tour the Plains of Abraham
Grab some fresh squeezed lemonade or gelato from the many street vendors. Tons of wonderful restaurants are scattered through this area as well, so be sure to plan on a few meals down here!
Open Air Market: (Where Saint Paul and Quai Saint Andre streets meet along the docks in the harbor)
This is a fabulous open air market that is bustling on the weekends hosting many local vendors and artisans from around the area. It's a great place to pick up some souvenirs, sample the local food, or just take in the sites and sounds of Quebec City!
Musee de la Civilisation:
A great museum to check out while in Quebec City is Musee de la Civilization. You can check out their schedule, ticket fees, etc here
This is a walking terrace in front of Chateau Frontenac where you often find street performers sharing their talent with spectators passing by. The terrace overlooks the Saint Lawrence river with gorgeous views (especially at night).
