rontenac quebec CANADA WELCOMES U.S. CITIZENS
. . NO PASSPORTS
Just sixty miles from the U. S. border ... a new kind of
vacation is waiting for you. In friendly old Quebec, it's a different
world . . . steeped in history, mellow with old-world charm you've
always thought you had to go abroad to find.
Where else but in Europe... can you see old stone city gates . . . streets
so narrow you could jump across them.. .little grey houses built right
up from the sidewalks?   And out in the Norman countryside .. . wayside
shrines bright with flowers . . . white plaster farmhouses out of the
17th Century? But along with these remembrances of things past . . .
there are sports facilities to satisfy everyone. Golf ... on sporting
courses. Swimming. Hunting . . . and fishing in lakes bordered by
lonely spruce.
Then there's the Chateau Frontenac ... in the heart of this holiday
land! A baronial hotel with feudal turrets and service that's almost
magic . . . with delightful French hospitality nothing can match! GOLF... on two skill-testing courses only a few minutes drive from the
Chateau.    The Kent Golf Club at Montmorency Falls "dog-legs" a rushing
little river.   Magnificent views and fairways are an invitation to play at the
Royal Quebec Club at Boischatel. Guest privileges arranged by the Chateau. STRIKE . . . and then the play of a battling beauty! The Laurentides
National Park is only thirty miles from the Chateau Frontenac. Here
are the St. Vincent Lakes, nestling below tall spruce and pine. Camps by the
day, with boats and food available . . . arrangements made by the Chateau.

SHRINE ... at Ste. Anne de Beaupre is one of the great pilgrimage centers of the world. Thousands of pilgrims and visitors come to this shrine each
year.   Easily reached by auto, bus or electric car along a road that winds in
and out of tiny habitant villages and gives you broad views of the St. Lawrence. Habitant Scenes
That Turn Back The Years!
Habitant farms sprawl along the roads leading from
the old city of Quebec. Doll-sized houses with roofs
at a quaint pitch . . . homespun covers and rugs on
looms outside . . . the fences hooked with wool that
was sheared off the farm's sheep, spun by the
grand'mere, dyed in brilliant earthy shades. Here
is a serenity ... an even tempo that rests tired nerves
and makes you slow down in spite of yourself! ■1

17th Century Meets the 20th!
Oxen plow the field in friendly old Quebec. But
often they're harnessed to modern farm implements.
On market days, carts of color-riot vegetables and
great sheaves of potent Canadian tabac are brought
into Quebec's old city squares to be sold. Over
the music of breathlessly spoken French, you'll
hear the deep bells of Quebec's churches.
...* The R&Cfcll Wlaill DiHlHC| KOOItl      Here, in this mellow panelled room, tasty meals are courteously
served, while the windows frame the ever-changing scene on the broad St. Lawrence below.
The "Canadian Suite" (directly
above) is reminiscent in its furnishings of a provincial manor-house.
It's typical of the careful detail
throughout the Chateau . . . both in
charming decoration and service.
But even though the keynote of this
famous hotel is luxury... there are accommodations to suit every budget. Public lounges that might have
been transplanted from a feudal
castle offer cosy groupings for
conversation. When there's a nip
in the air, the great hearths glow
with five-foot logs and make four
o'clock tea a charming rite.

Highlights of
friendly old Quebec
easily accessible
from
Chateau Frontenac
Studded like stars around
the Chateau ... in easy
walking distance . . . are
exciting historical and picturesque points of interest.
Take practically any one
of the twisting narrow little
streets. It's old France
brought to you without
crossing any seas ... without any fuss over passports . , . and within the
bounds of almost every
pocket-book!
ssisiiil
(1) Dufferin  Terrace, just   below your
window at the Chateau Frontenac.
(2) Courtyard of the Seminary.
(3) Lookout, National Battlefields Park...
one of the loveliest of boulevards.
::«:-:: ::;■;■;*&: v Quebec's docks are busy with traffic
of the St. Lawrence... that great inland seaway
to the Atlantic. Sea-going ships and tiny fishing
boats tie up here. A ferry-boat ride to Levis,
across the river and back, gives a magnificent
view of Quebec City.
Ohamplain, . . . first governor of French
Canada and founder of the city of Quebec in
1608 ... has this statue to his memory. Today
the French flavor that Champlain brought
from France still lingers in this old walled city.
Tiny twisting streets that might have
been transplanted from a town in 17th Century
France. And the houses lining them... iron-
shuttered from the days when the British and
the French were fighting for this citadel. H

The attractions of the
Chateau Frontenac as a
summer holiday resort are
only equalled by its fame
as the headquarters for
winter sports. You will
enjoy ski-ing in the protected Lac Beauport Snow

are increased by the ski
tow nearby. The Chateau's
