Not long, interesting and more to learn a little more about our history J, I highly appreciate the fact that it is not long and so we don't vinit not fed to reread the same things. Ancient artifacts can better understand, in addition to surprise us!

  • Where: Fort Chambly What: A historical fort, similar to Old Fort Henry just smaller and cheaper. How was it: We stumbled upon this place after having breakfast at Dame Tartine. As we approached the water front, we got a closer look and noticed that we could enter for a very reasonable price. We spent roughly $12 between the two of us. It doesn't look big from the outside but once you're in, it's quite surprising. It's a good place to go with kids and there's some interaction as you walk through. There is also a timed information session with a guide that we were fortunate to assist. Grade: Eli = 4, Serge = 4+ Recommend: Yes, it's very affordable and a nice place to visit if you are in the area.
  • A national park with plenty of space to picnic. You can visit the inside It will take you 2-3 hours to visit depending in your interest in reading signs. Guided tour is offered and pricing is fair. I really like the fact they now offer a kind of treasure hunt for kids a fun way to visit with younger crowd.
  • Nice slice of Québec history. Here is held the biggest beer festival of the province. Right by the water, it is a beautiful place to visit and have a picnic in the parc!
  • Beautifull area where you can walk, bike, inline skate... A lot of green area. Lack of picnik table but plenty of space to put a blanket.
  • Super chill park by the water. Great for taking walks. Watch out for the Beerfest in September every year.
