5 Quebec City Summer Activities when Traveling with a Toddler
Note* – Even though it’s a forest pathway, a sturdy stroller can make the journey.
Village Vacances Valcartier
Only twenty minutes from Québec City, you can make a splash at Valcartier Vacation Village.
In the summer, you can enjoy the outdoor waterpark that offers 35 water slides, a huge wave pool, 100 water games, and two thematic rivers. Ferme CocoRico is the best play area for tots and it designed exclusively for small children. Its wading pool overflows with fun mini slides and water games.
The indoor waterpark is open during every season and includes 14 water slides, a wave pool, double surf wave, an exciting river adventure, and more.
Additionally, on-site, there are family-friendly accommodations and excellent restaurants.
Mega Parc is indoors so it’s perfect for a rainy day or the hottest of summer days. There are 18 rides, including 14 new ones, such as bumper cars, ice rink, roller coaster, Ferris wheel, and arcades.
Max’s favorite rides include the carrousel, Centrale climbing structure, and Convoyeur.
Aquarium du Québec
Aquarium du Québec has more than 10,000 animals from about 300 species.
You can watch marine mammals, such as polar bears, walruses, and several seal species, frolic in the outdoor park. Many animals from the Pacific Ocean swim in the huge 350,000-litre tank, and Pavillon des profondeurs showcases jellyfish, rays and sea horses.
During the summer, there are water games, a ropes course, and a wonderful playground that keeps toddlers in mind.
Mosaïcultures Quebec exhibition is a celebration of the beauty of life on our planet. The tour allows visitors to discover a magnificent garden filled with history on the banks of the Saint-Lawrence River.
The works are grouped together into 20 sections totaling over 6 million plants.
Kids will love The Polar and Marine World where they can see polar bears, walruses, whales, dolphins, belugas, and penguins surrounded by icebergs and snowbanks (all made of plants and flowers).
The Endangered Species area is also really fascinating to children as well and includes giant giraffes and elephants.
