Québec City has many unique options, but a tasty option to consider is the Chocolate Museum. Erico’s Chocolate Museum will teach you how some of the world’s most romantic delicacies are made. Afterward, the two of you can visit the chocolaterie to watch as decadent chocolate truffles, rosettes and hearts are hand-dipped and drizzled. A cafeteria serves up rich hot chocolate, cakes and ice creams. Get some tasty delights to share and at the right moment tell your darling that they are the sweetest thing that has every happened to you, and you can't imagine your life without them anymore. Pull out the beautiful wooden box containing the engagement ring that you carefully selected and then had custom made at Knox Jewelers. Your Sweetie will be delighted and surprised! This special piece of gemstone or diamond jewelery will take center stage for the day, and when the time comes to exchange your wedding bands you'll both know exactly what flavor cake to have in celebration.

If you want to go with something a little more on-the-go consider a romantic carriage or hot air balloon ride! You can explore the Old City in a horse-drawn carriage nestled together under a cozy blanket if it's cold out. Your driver can share stories about the beautifully built city gates, buildings, parks and monuments and you go by. Let your driver know ahead of time what your plan is and perhaps he'll be able to recommend the perfect spot to present the engagement ring to your dearest. Who knows, you might event spot the perfect place to exchange your vows and wedding bands once along your route!
If you go with the Hot Air Balloon option the two of you will see breathtaking, birds-eye views of rivers, waterfalls, mountains, valleys, and islands. Pull your love close and whisper that they make your heart feel like it's flying every moment you're together. Turn them to face you and ask that very important question “will you marry me?” Present them with the gemstone or diamond jewelry from Knox Jewelers that you had made just for them and tell them that this ring was custom made for them; they'll think that you pulled the stars from the sky to put on their finger with how much it will sparkle.
Another major one to consider, if you and your honey enjoy history and architecture, is the city itself! Québec City is the only fortified city in North America north of Mexico and has almost 4.6 km of walls and imposing gates to explore. The Old Québec/Dufferin Terrace was designated a world heritage treasure by UNESCO, and for good reason! Check out the Château Frontenac (the world's most photographed hotel), the centuries-old architecture, and the historic sites. The friendly atmosphere and affable locals add to the European charm. Whatever the time of year, you'll find horse-drawn carriages, street entertainers, singers, and artists, particularly at Old Québec's own open-air art gallery, Rue du Trésor. High atop Cape Diamond, stroll along the Dufferin Terrace overlooking the St. Lawrence River and the surrounding area. Or come watch the ice making its way down the river in winter.
These are just a couple suggestions, but the whole beautiful city has fascinating architecture and history. You could present your carefully chosen engagement ring, that piece of diamond jewelery that reminds you of the sparkle in your loved one's eyes, and a place they deem “breathtaking”. And keep your eyes out for signs that a location will allow weddings to be held, you could potentially return to the site where you popped the question to exchange your vows and wedding bands. Knox Jewelers is proud to have master artisans who hand make their own filigree and do all hand engraving on our vintage style rings, this unique detail is stunning and really makes your rings special.
A final suggestion lies in the heart of Old Québec. Inside the historic fortifications, on the prestigious Rue Saint-Louis, a small, quiet, intimate hotel awaits you. The four-star Hotel Le Clos Saint-Louis, a peaceful hideaway for lovers and the most romantic boutique hotel in Old Québec, has been a model of hospitality and comfort for many years. They claim to have a “dream team of romance experts” and unsurpassed hotel service which will help ensure that you have the perfect setting for your proposal. They have a variety of packages designed for romance, and they even have one specifically for engagements! Perhaps after spending the day seeing the sights you and your honey will end the day at the hotel, once you're snuggled up in your room for the night you can have the staff deliver the bottle of champagne that comes with the package. When your true love asks what it's for you can reply that you are hoping to have a reason to celebrate, pull out the special engagement ring that you chose from Knox Jewelers and ask them to make you the happiest person alive by agreeing to marry you. Surely they'll say yes, you'll celebrate with the champagne and just enjoy the perfect, intimate post-engagement-glow. If you enjoy this stunning hotel consider returning here for all or part of your honeymoon after you've exchanged your wedding bands.
No matter which location you choose, your proposal will be perfect and romantic. The special piece of gemstone or diamond jewelry that you select from Knox Jewelers will be the perfect symbol of your love because it will be heirloom quality and you'll be able to pass it down the generations of your family, each new wearer will know how much love is being passed down with this stunning ring.
