The neighborhood of "petit champlain" is situated below old town. You can get there by going down the stairs or by taking the the "funicular," a little train that costs $2. Seeing the street in winter with all the snow and Christmas decorations is like entering the town of Santa Claus! The holiday magic continues in the form of colorful houses, lights, and ice sculptures. As for the shops and restaurants, there´s a bit of everything. There are souvenir shops, a place that sells maple products, clothing and fashion and a theater too! It´s a fun and magical place for children too!
