Very reasonably-priced admission to historic "dig" underneath the terrace. Tickets can be purchased at the kiosk at the east end of the terrace.

The Terrasse Dufferin has an outstanding viewpoint of the St. Lawrence River. From its long walkable deck / stairs leading up to the Fort, it is certainly something to take in on a beautiful sunny day.

This a beautiful setting, and it routinely had great numbers of people about. The scenery is enough of a reason to walk along here. But, if you also enjoy watching people, you are in for a special treat!

No visit to Quebec City should miss a stroll along Terrasse Dufferin. There isn't a great deal to do (unless you're there in winter and fancy going on a toboggan), but it's very picturesque before or after you visit the Chateau.

Although it doesn't take much time to see it all, you get some of the best places to take photographs, Whether you overlook the St. Laurence, or admire the Chateau Frontanac, you need to visit the Terrasse before you leave

Kudos to the city fathers for having the foresight to protect and preserve such a large expanse of area in the old city. Surprisingly large area of boardwalk, both length and width, with extensive improvements that are well maintained. Helpful displays.

It was the Thursday night when we were there... They were spectacular. I believe the rest of August is Thursdays and Saturday evenings. It started around 9:30pm or so.
