Quebec City’s enticing tableau beyond the wall

Lily Henry-Austin, 15, of Silver Spring, Md., soars across the expanse in front of Montmorency Falls on the outskirts of Quebec City. Higher than Niagara Falls, Montmorency Falls is a big draw for visitors to Quebec City and a compelling reason to venture beyond the walls of Old Quebec.
Performers entertain a crowd in an open-air concert on the Plains of Abraham during Quebec’s national holiday weekend. The historic battlefield, on a plateau high above the city, is often missed by visitors to Quebec City who do not venture beyond the historic wall.
Roaring water makes a sunny-day rainbow at Montmorency Falls on the outskirts of Quebec City. Visitors can get to the footbridge atop the falls by cable car or by climbing the nearly 500 steps. Montmorency Falls is a beehive of outdoor activities year-round. It’s what’s inside the historic wall of Quebec City that makes people want to visit. It’s what’s outside that makes people want to stay.
Motorists pass by street art under an elevated road in Quebec City, part of a neighborhood transformation meant to beautify a utilitarian stretch of the city. Quebec-born Cirque du Soleil performed under the concrete bed in celebration. The art, near the Saint-Roch district, is part of what draws visitors to neighborhoods outside the city’s historic wall.
